On balance, most concluded he had been slightly more dovish than expected. ECB President, Mario Draghi, certainly did a good job in keeping the markets guessing during his Central Bank's Monetary Policy Statement and press conference yesterday afternoon. But in saying "We were unanimous in setting no precise date for when to discuss changes in the future," and going on to point out "In other words, our discussions should take place in the Fall, or in the Autumn, since we are in Europe", he appears to have ruled out the opportunity for next month's Jackson Hole Symposium to be his platform for the big announcement. Whilst he is simply putting off the inevitable, Draghi's insistence that "Inflation is not where we want it to be or where it should be", while also voicing commitment to bolster the bond buying programme should it be necessary, the 'can' now appears to have been kicked down the road to either the September or October meetings. This all left the US in a rather anticlimactic mood, having already received mixed macro news inputs as the Labor Department reported a fall in weekly first-time unemployment claims, while the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia released a report showing that regional manufacturing activity grew at a notably slower rate in July and the Conference Board said its index of leading indicators rose by more than expected for the month of June. With a Bloomberg report suggesting the investigation into association between Trump's Campaign and Russia was also to be extended into his business dealings, the three major averages drifted downward shortly after the opening on profit taking, going on to traded fractionally either side of unchanged for the remainder of the session. Reporting majors Travelers and American Express both weighed on the Dow Jones after releasing dull second quarterlies, while Best Buy and Home Depot were hit after Sears said it would start selling its Kenmore line of refrigerators and stoves on Amazon.com; Trucking, Railroad, Telecom, and Steels also all met modest selling. Post-close, Microsoft firmed 0.9% in after-hours trading, on reporting that its quarterly profits had more than doubled, boosted by strong demand in its cloud operations plus tax benefits. So far, the Wall Street's Q2'2017 earnings have tended to surpass consensus expectations, which presently appears to be the principal bull support for equity indices which remain at or close to their record highs. Treasuries found demand as the ECB deflated some concerns over an early shift toward reducing monetary stimulus. The yield on the benchmark ten-year note fell as low as 2.239%, before settling virtually unchanged at 2.266%. Crude prices rose to a seven-week high Thursday, with the international benchmark Brent touching the $50/barrel level for the first time in more than a month during US hours, although this succumbed to profit taking late in the session and crude went on to decline fractionally during Asian trading. Traders eyeing the recent decline in US stockpiles, will be sensitive to this evening's weekly US Oil Rig Count data and Monday's meeting of OPEC delegates to review an extension to existing production cuts and discuss now also including Libya and Nigeria into the agreement. Following recent strength coming from Bank of America Merrill Lynch's bullish stance on Asia-Pacific equities, the region's markets appear to have somewhat run out of steam this morning. Just ahead of their close, most had made just fractional moves with only the S&P/ASX-200 showing a reasonable decline with its export plays being pressurised by the AUS$'s recent strengthening against the US$, while weak Energy stocks also kept the Nikkei pointing downward. European shares started on a positive note yesterday, following new record highs amongst the principal US indices on Wednesday and a firm closing of Asian trading first thing Thursday morning. This was further bolstered by strong earnings reports from media heavyweight Publicis and consumer giant, Unilever (ULVR.L). The STOXX 600 peaked almost 0.5% higher immediately before the ECB president spoke, but then collapsed into the red where it remained following the US's lacklustre opening. The Euro dipped slightly during this morning's Asian session, having extended recent gains to hit its highest level against the US$ since August 2015 yesterday. The IMF Board this morning has reportedly accepted Greece's latest bailout plans 'In Principle', while an earthquake in the county resulted in 2 deaths and multiple casualties. By comparison, the FTSE-100 opened in the positive yesterday, going on to rise further on receipt of better than expected June retail sales data and then just blipped modestly on the ECB statement, to close with a good 0.77% gain on the day. The highly international index benefitted from a further sharp fall in Sterling as the EU's Chief Brexit Negotiator, Michel Barnier, highlighted continuing "fundamental" differences over the issue of citizen rights and willingness to recognise obligation to pay exit bill that remained. Amongst individual stocks, Sports Direct (SPD.L) rallied as full year profits highlighted the damage Sterling's devaluation had inflicted to its full year profits, while easyJet (EZJ.L) led a round of profit taking amongst European airlines. There are limited macro releases due today. The UK details just its Public Sector Net Borrowing for June, while nothing is due form the EU and the US provides its Baker Hughes US oil Rig Count. UK corporates due to provide earnings or trading updates include Vodafone (VOD.L), Homeserve (HSV.L), Close Brothers (CBG.L), AO World (AO..L), Acacia Mining (ACA.L), Record (REC.L), Beazley (BEZ.L) and Capital & Counties Properties (CAPC.L). Majors reporting in the US later today include General Electric and Honeywell. Lacklustre overnight markets bode for a similar European opening this morning, with the FTSE-100 seen trading between 0 to 10 points down in early business.

Post BT Group’s FY-17 results back in May, which highlighted on-going regulatory and pricing pressures and was accompanied by BT lowering its guidance for FY-18 to that of a “flat” outlook with only a “progressive” dividend, BT stock fell heavily. It reached an excessively undervalued point at around 285p per share in July, which we highlighted on 14 July, whereby fears over regulation on BT Openreach had become far too bearish we believe. Since then, BT stock has rallied sharply, correcting the excessively undervalued position. It remains undervalued now, but less so, and we see no near term catalysts to change this. We therefore downgrade our recommendation to Long term Buy (Buy) , retaining our target price of 340p.

We recently hosted our annual Industrial Technology dinner with 14 companies, many of which are active in the materials science arena; having focused previously on composite materials in the aerospace sector, in this edition of Machinations we focus on graphene, with its unique and potentially game-changing qualities and potential applications. Investments in this area remain fairly early stage, but could potentially reap huge rewards. Graphene is well represented in the UK small-cap market by several players.

The AIM market turned twenty-two in June and it is fair to say it has had its fair share of difficultiesH1 2017 saw a further net loss of constituents and we ask what will the rest of 2017 hold in store. Arguably the stability of the UK government, Brexit and the shift in global monetary policy will be the biggest themes for the remainder of the year.

In terms of service revenues, Q1 was quite as expected with solid organic growth at constant change of 2.2% yoy, slightly better than those recorded in the previous quarter (+1.5% yoy). The trend is indeed similar to the 2% recorded during the first 9m of 2015/16, despite the negative impact in Europe of the roaming regulation. Excluding this impact, the global growth should have been… 3%, quite a good number in the telecom sector. Note growth in AMAP was still strong at +7.9% during the quarter. Remember that on 20 March 2017, Vodafone announced an agreement to combine Vodafone India with Idea Cellular. The transaction is subject to regulatory approvals and is expected to close during calendar year 2018. The combined company will be jointly controlled by Vodafone and the Aditya Birla Group. Vodafone India has been classified as discontinued operations for group reporting purposes. Service revenue has indeed declined by 13.9% yoy in Q1 as a result of continued price competition from the new entrant and incumbents but the sequential quarterly trend is clearly stabilising as SIM consolidation is beginning to improve ARPU in the low-value segment, helping offset pricing pressure in the mid and high-value segments of the base. Note also the reported numbers exclude the results of Vodafone Netherlands following the disposal of its consumer fixed business and subsequent merger into VodafoneZiggo (it has an impact of 4.2% on the European revenues).

Amino’s H1’17 results on Tuesday showed continued momentum in both device sales and recurring software revenue, leaving the group very well placed to achieve our full year expectations. Trading in the first half benefitted from a healthy FX tailwind but we were encouraged to see double digit underlying constant currency growth in both key revenue segments. Net cash at May’17 of £13.1m benefitted from a large working capital inflow, which we expect to reverse in H2, however the group still has plenty of firepower for further earnings enhancing acquisitions. We leave our full year forecasts essentially unchanged but see scope for outperformance in the second half. We retain our 243p target price and Buy recommendation.

After a disappointing Q1, Telefonica has released a quite as expected Q2. Revenues were up organically by 3.1% yoy (at constant forex) vs only 1.5% growth in Q1. This is a good number and note that, excluding the negative impact of regulation, organic revenues should have grown by 4.1%. The adjusted EBITDA which had increased by only 1.3% yoy in Q1 has grown by 7.2% (it should have increased by 8.9% excluding regulation!). Note that, in this quarter, the currency impact was positive by 12ppt in…Brazil, but negative by 10ppt in the rest of South America (due in particular to the absence of official exchange rates representative of the economic situation in Venezuela): overall revenues from Brazil and Hispanoamerica grew by 9.2% in reported terms vs real organic growth of 8%. Furthermore, Telefonica has upgraded its previous cautious guidance for 2017: revenue should now grow by 1.5% yoy and not be only stable (and thus despite a negative 1.2ppt impact from regulation) while the EBITDA margin expansion of 1ppt vs 2016 is maintained.
A solid Q2 for Orange whose revenue and EBITDA yoy growth accelerated slightly compared to Q1. Q2 revenues have grown organically by 1.4% yoy (vs +0.8% in Q1). This is quite a good performance, even if it is globally in line with the market’s expectations, and which confirms the good trend recorded in the previous quarters (remember, revenues had increased by 0.3% during H1 16 and by 0.9% in H2 16). The great story in Spain continued apace with revenue growth of 8.8% yoy. In France, revenues were up by 0.5% yoy (for the first time since 2009), the impact of roaming being offset by a clear improvement in the mobile trend while the fixed broadband services continued to grow steadily (+5% yoy). Q2 EBITDA increased by 2.4% yoy (vs +2% in Q1). Note the adjusted EBITDA margin for France rose globally by 1ppt in H1. With no surprise, the group has confirmed its objective for 2017 of a higher EBITDA than in 2016 on a comparable basis (lifted by the strong commercial momentum supported by capex, and continuing efforts to transform the cost structure). As announced previously, the Board will propose the payment of a dividend of €0.65 for 2017. An interim dividend of €0.25 will be paid on 07/12/2017.
Nokia reported Q1 revenues of €5,629m, down 1% yoy at comparable currency and 0.7% on reported figures: - Under the new reporting structure, the Ultra Broadband Networks segment went down by 8.1% yoy (€2,165m), with both Mobile Networks (€1,619m, -6.3%) and Fixed Networks (€546m, -13.2%) substantially down. - The newly created Global Services business (consisting of the services share of the Ultra Broadband Networks business) came in flat at €1,445m (+0.3%). - IP Networks and Applications came in at €1,358m, also down yoy (-4.4%), with all sub-segments being down by double-digit (IP Routing: -8.3% at €654m, Optical Networks: -9.6% at €339m) but once again Applications & Analytics (€365m, +9.6%). - As a consequence, the overall Networks business was down by 4.8% yoy. - Nokia Technologies displayed a strong increase yoy (€369m, +90.2%) thanks to a licensing agreement with Apple. The adjusted gross margin came in at 41.7%, up 290bp yoy, for an IFRS gross margin of 39.8%. The adjusted EBIT margin came in at 10.2%, up 430bp yoy, for an IFRS EBIT margin of -0.8%, leading to an IFRS loss of €433m. For 2017, the company downgraded the outlook for its addressable market, which is expected to decrease by 3-5% (vs. low single-digit), but left unchanged its operating margin target of 8-10%.

Vodafone will combine its subsidiary Vodafone India (excluding its 42% stake in Indus Towers) with Idea, which is listed on the Indian Stock Exchange. The implied EVs are $12.4bn for Vodafone India and $10.8bn for Idea. This is a merger of equals with joint control of the combined company between Vodafone and the Aditya Birla Group (which controls Idea), governed by a shareholders’ agreement. Vodafone will indeed own 45.1% of the combined company after transferring a stake of 4.9% to the Aditya Birla Group for $579m in cash concurrent with the completion of the merger. The Aditya Birla Group will then own 26% and has the right to acquire more shares from Vodafone under an agreed mechanism with a view to equalising the shareholdings over time. Until equalisation is achieved, the voting rights of the additional shares held by Vodafone will be restricted and votes will be exercised jointly under the terms of the shareholders’ agreement. Vodafone India will be deconsolidated by Vodafone, reducing Vodafone’s net debt by c.$8.2bn and lowering Vodafone Group’s leverage by around 0.3x the EBITDA. The transaction is expected to close during 2018, subject to the customary approvals.
