Last week showed that the telecoms sector has one drawback that distinguishes it from many other industries: intense regulation. While the high entry barriers are the flipside to this, regulation may scare off investors from time to time. The general market was down 1.0 percent in week 35, and the telecoms sector lost 2.0 percent, as measured by the EuroStoxx 50 index and our European telecoms index, respectively, amid news on regulation and new market entrants.
