Vodafone (VOD -2.7%) opens lower in spite of a rally in European markets, thanks to a downgrade to Underperform from Bernstein. Shares are now within striking distance of their 52-week low of $24.95, thanks largely to pessimism about the carrier's European ops.

    Whether they are right or wrong it amazes me how people are like sheep reacting to every analyst upgrade and downgrade. Can't people value a company on their own?

    Many traders today have the attention span of a German Shepard.

    Looks like a very good buying opportunity to me. Forget Europe (It will return to profitability) There are all kinds of other things and countries, including the USA (verizon) where profits are being made or where long laid plans are slowly coming to fruition.

    With you on that one. Great entry point here! Let me look at some VOD puts today.

     

    It hit its lower Bollinger Band as well. Lower Bollinger Band plus 52-week low looks like a solid combo for put selling but will check out the charts.

     

    The real story with VOD is a backdoor into emerging markets with the stability of a developing markets parent.
