Vodafone share price: VOD H1 earnings as they happened
Take a look at our coverage of Vodafone’s interim earnings to see the results as they happened and the impact it had on the company’s share price.
What happened to Vodafone’s share price before and after its H1 earnings?On the day of the earnings release – 12 November 2019 – the Vodafone share price opened at 163.00p. This was up from the previous day’s close of 160.30p.
In the first half an hour of trading, the share price rose to 165.40p, breaking through the key price level of 164.00p. While the price fell back to 160.48p by 9.30am, it went on to reach an intra-day high of 169.48p – a level which had not been met since December 2018.
Although Vodafone’s 0.3% increase in organic revenue might seem small, it does represent the company’s return to growth, which it expects to continue throughout the remainder of its financial year. Overall, the day of the interim earnings was a win for the bulls, but it remains to be seen what impact the company’s debt pile and adverse Supreme Court ruling in India will have on the Vodafone share price.

Basic loss per share was 7.24 eurocents, compared to a loss per share of 28.89 eurocents in the previous year.
