$SKY $VOD $BT.A $MANX $TEEG $TALK $SKMD Mobile telecoms are struggling to grow their revenues: voice is declining for several years, data is joining the trend. Potential new services are network-related M2M/IoT and higher level digital services, but success in these segments is not guaranteed automatically, so the value of many telecom companies (both mobile and fixed lines; at least in the developed markets) will decline in the coming years #bearish

$SKY results are simply amazing... but the profit margin growth should shop soon:
- Italy, Germany and Austria are already better in churn than the UK
- ARPU is stable in most of the countries
- Costs could not be cut forever
Fix the profit from the current share price spike in the next 1-2 weeks max.
