Last week in telecoms: another takeover, focus on Spain and earnings reports

Monday 29 April 2019 | 07:01 CET | News
Last week's absolute outperformer was KCom, after it accepted a takeover bid. Other significant news included network sharing in Spain and a dozen companies reporting their Q1 earnings. Proximus (-5.4% for the week) was among the weakest shares, apparently without significant news. The Telecompaper Stock Index European Telecoms Services was down 0.3 percent in week 17, versus an almost unchanged EuroStoxx 50 index.
