I sold 500 Vodafone (VOD) shares this week. June 8, 2007Posted by deminvest in investment, my free stock, Single stocks, stock I own, stocks, stocks that pay high dividends, VOD, Vodafone.
I did it for two reasons:
1) Vodafone reached my target price: it went up 40%. According to my free stock strategy I sell enough shares top get back the total amount I had previously invested and keep remaining shares forever, because they are “Free Shares” now.
2) I think Vodafone is facing more future threats than opportunities. Selling its services mostly in mature markets, it is not easy for Vodafone to grow. Acquisitions in developing markets are expensive. Also wifi telephony is becoming a reality that could cut mobile operators’ revenues.
Last week I decided to buy China Mobile (CHL) shares. I took the decision by comparing CHL with VOD (Vodafone)
Worries about “China Bubble” sent Shanghai down 6.5% but… let’s compare China Mobile (CHL) with Vodafone (VOD) to see who is overvalued.

- Greenspan, who started out like a guru, after quitting his previous profession, talks about a supposed “China Bubble”.
- Chinese government imposed a tax of 0.4% on every trade on Shanghai stock exchange, to calm it from growing too much.
Those warnings succeeded in sending Shanghai stock markets down 6.5% today… That of course sent European markets down 1% and probably will send Wall Street down at opening too… Good Job!
But… Every-time I look at Chinese company figures, I see they are fairly priced. Often their current growth makes them cheap bargains.
Last week I bought Petrochina, because it was the best buy Oil Company. Now I am looking with great interest at World largest Cell Phone company: China Mobile.
I talked too much! Let’s let numbers sing now: (more…)
