Vodafone Group Plc. should be avoided for the time being or the investors shall wait for its consolidation. The company announced its half yearly results, a few days back on 15th November 2016.

The stock finished trading on the London Stock exchange at 203.55p on Tuesday, 22nd November, up by 0.45% compared to the previous close. In terms of technical analysis, Vodafone Plc looks pretty bearish on charts as it has made a technical pattern of ‘lower highs and higher lows’ which indicates weakness in the stock. It has had a nonstop fall from 240p to 200p in the last 3 to 4 months. Clearly, the stock has been trading on the ‘downward trend line’. Therefore, consolidation would be confirmed once it breaches the downward trend line. However, it seems that stock has taken support at 200p and if it would sustain the support zone, then the stock shall trade in the channel of 202p-216p in the near term. But, a breakdown below 200p would surely means fresh lows and would also indicate that more and more short positions have been building on the stock. Vodafone Plc needs to be under the watch for some time, and then only we can foresee a clear direction. Currently, the stock has been trading 3% above its 52 weeks low and 16% below its 52 weeks high. (Read more)
Vodafone Plc is a ‘Hold’ at the current price levels and we really don’t see much upside in the stock. The company’s latest fiscal 2016 results were also in line with the management guidance as the company reported fiscal 2016 EBITDA at £11.9 bn, which was on the upper side of the management guidance of £11.7-£12.0 bn . However, in terms of technical analysis, the chart has turned ‘bearish’ as the technical indicators indicate short term weakness in the stock. It has formed a ‘shooting star’ and ‘Bearish engulfing pattern’ in the last 3 trading sessions, and in case the stock breaks below yesterday’s low of 225.40p, we might see stock heading towards 215pence in the coming trading sessions. Although once the stock hits 215 pence, it might start consolidating and thereafter can trade in the range of 215p-232p. Hence, traders carefully need to watch these levels and hedge their trading positions with appropriate stop loss. Currently, the stock has been trading above its 20DMA, 50DMA and 100DMA of 223p, 222p and 219p respectively. The stock finished trading on the London Stock exchange at 225 p on Thursday, 19th May. . Based on earnings estimates for the company's fiscal year ending in march 2018, the stock has a price-to-earnings ratio of 27.79 which is quite high compared to FTSE100 12 month forward P/E of 13.37. The analysis of forward price to earnings of Vodafone Plc also indicates that the stock is pretty overvalued.
Vodafone PLC is pretty fairly priced at the current levels and we do not see an upside of more than 15% from the current price levels. According to the data from Morning star.com, the stock has a forward P/E of 40.4 compared to FTSE100 12 months forward P/E of 13.34. This also indicates that the stock is slightly overpriced at the current levels. Currently the stock has been trading above its 50 day and 100 day moving average of 217.68 p and 217.9 p respectively. We expect the stock to be range bound between 220 p -245 p in the coming quarters and fiscal year.
