TPM – TPG Telecom Limited

TPM has been on the back foot since the previous alert in Feb and has now consolidated the lows around 6.00. Price still has some work to do to convince buyers that a new leg higher is on the cards with key resistance around the 7.25 mark. We saw some promising signs with a volume spike yesterday but investors are still awaiting news regarding the proposed merger with Vodafone (VHA). We will be watching to see what price action plays out and waiting for further news out from the Federal Court re the merger proposal. We would expect the merger to be a positive for shareholders with a proposed special dividend for TPM shareholders upon the merger. The previous reaction saw a 21% rally on the day of the news release.
