Last week in telecoms: Orange BE biggest winner, spotlight on Italy

Monday 2 April 2018 | 08:59 CET | News
Last week's telecoms stock performance ranged from +10 percent for Orange Belgium to -15 percent for Intelsat. On the whole, the sector recovered from the previous week's negativity, but underperformed the general market. The most important news came out of Italy, where TIM (Telecom Italia, -0.2%) has Vivendi and Elliott battling for control and where Sky (-0.8%) forged two new distribution deals, reported late on Friday. Almost half of the Telecompaper European telecoms index (+0.6%) closed the week (week 13) down, with a large number of challengers contributing to the fall. Liberty Global
