Last week in telecoms: DNA (+13%) biggest winner, TalkTalk heaviest loser (-12%)

Monday 5 February 2018 | 07:34 CET | News
At the end of the week, the Financial Times broke a story of resumed merger talks between Vodafone (-2.7%) and Liberty Global. The former put out a release, after the close of the market, confirming the talks and Liberty Global (+0.8%) was among the few telecoms shares ending the week in the black. CityFibre (-7.8%) may have suffered from the market questioning whether the FTTH agreement& with Vodafone will come under pressure, should the talks lead to a merger of Vodafone UK and Virgin Media.
