Who speculates with Telecom Austria shares? Last quarter their incomes declined seriously on the major markets in Austria, Bulgaria and Croatia. There is certainly a relation with Hoheher bribing nearly all governments in the region. On their net, they though-control the bribed politicians. They control nearly all communications of banks as Raiffeizen and Unicredito and the government.
The problem is that now the scheme is transparent and the brand is with definitely negative attitude. In Bulgaria there are something like 100:1 finding them cheating with billing and arrogant. This is important in modern marketing and customers are leaving. Do you believe that there are 5 mill customers in Bulgaria paying by 8 EUR per month. They should be about 2 million. Telecom Austria is obviously concealing the truth. Increasing the prices of BOB and wage-growth decline are desperate measures showing TA fear of losses in the short run. They expect to compensate with ridiculous price-increase the losses before closing in Bulgaria and Croatia of 200 mill EUR in 2014. In a year the price-sensitive BOB clients will change the operator. Last quarter of the year 2013 their net profit should be close to zero and according to alexa.com with a lot of ads their unique site visits decrease quickly. So is the PE ratio above 40 sustainable with negative net profits in 2014? Do you remember when they sold shares to Slim with asymmetric information and their decline. I do not care for drug money, but think for yours. Do you really believe that 1 billion EUR is the real prize for the frequencies options, because the telecom plays together with the government, the court as well - otherwise there should have been a sentence for former TA CEO admitting bribing major politicians.
As Schumpeter says when there is X-inefficiency from being a cartel in a market for too long, with depreciated human capital, there follows creative destruction. I wish those ideas were mine, but they belong to the Austrian Economist. So do you think the author of the words "if there were not regulators, we would have been like Porsche (So good, - not so expensive)" is Pony or Ponzi? Who do you trust Hans O'tchuden or Hansen with the stock market theory for bubbles (that cause economic crises in economies with leverage) that won Nobel Prize this year.
Carlos Slim, everyone knows where your money comes from - drugs. USA consumes 1g per person per year - so is it like 30-50 USD bln per year? Do not spend your money in Bulgaria, I will take care Mt_e_l to close soon for thought-control of me while in the central bank and organizing the crisis together with EC and ECB for earning 20-30 BLN with the austria banks in the market and there speculations. That left 80% of the Bulgarians poor. So keep your bloody drug money, nobody needs your investments in cartels. The same is with Croatia and even Austria. Telecom Austria goes to history for bribing Ministers, thought-control and speculations in CEE and printing money in Belarus as the consumers and I, Georgi have decided so!
