Last week in telecoms: record performance with telecom index closing in on benchmark, BT up sharply

Monday 5 November 2018 | 07:00 CET | News
Last week was the the year's best so far for the European telecoms sector. Our index was up 4.0 percent, outperforming the EuroStoxx 50 index (+2.5%) and reversing much of the previous week's losses. The year-to-date performance of our index (-11%) and its benchmark (-8.3%) have come closer. There was a record eights stocks making double-digit gains. Earnings reports were generally welcomed, except those in the satellite sector. BT made a 15 percent jump on regulatory developments. The western and southern European players faired quite well, with just two exceptions.
