Vodacom released a reasonable Q3 F2018 trading update but there is little fundamental reason to warrant a valuation upgrade.

I tend to view telecommunications stocks such as Vodacom, MTN, and Telkom, as “utility” type investments.

Whilst earnings growth is elusive, there is at least the yield factor to consider and in this regard Vodacom has appeal at the right share price level and is preferred to MTN.

The stock was too richly priced at over R180 a few months ago but was also on the cheap side at around R140.

The stock has bounced up quite strongly since the beginning of January but at R165 I regard this as time to take money off the table.

On a DCF valuation methodology, I derive fair value of R152 per share with a target price of R160 per share.

Vodacom is now a Trading Sell but it is retained as a Portfolio Buy for longer term holders of the stock.
