(Telecompaper) A number of mergers and investments, as well as Q2’s first earnings reports, set the tone in the telecoms sector last week. The winners included Turk Telekom (+5.8%), Rostelecom (+5.5%), Intelsat (+5.4%) and Altice Europe (+5.4%). That could however not prevent the Telecompaper Stock Index European Telecoms Service ending week 29 down 1.4 percent, lagging the EuropStoxx 50 (-0.5%). Several German shares were the biggest losers, including 1&1 Drillisch (-13%), United Internet (-10%) and Tele Columbus (-7.7%).
