Last week in telecoms: Altice makes a surprise jump and Iliad recovers

Monday 28 May 2018 | 07:30 CET | News
Last week, Altice was in the spotlight. Its share price was down 65 percent, but correcting for the Altice USA spin-off, there was in fact a 139 percent leap up from the previous week. Altice managed to bring the Telecompaper European telecoms index into positive territory (+0.3%), as without it the sector would have been marginally down (-0.1%). Altice may have been helped in performing this remarkable leap by news of Arcep's president no longer opposing market consolidation. Overall, the index outperformed the EuroStoxx 50 index (-1.6%).
