Last week in telecoms: another week of telecoms underperforming, index down 15% YTD

Monday 31 December 2018 | 07:00 CET | News
Last week was the third in a row of the European telecoms sector underperforming the broader market. The good news was that the losses weren't quite as steep as we have seen before. Performances in week 52 ranged from +11 percent for Intelsat to -4.9 percent for Gamma Communications. Our index was down 0.9 percent, versus a fall of 0.5 percent for the EuroStoxx 50 index.
