Business Strategy and Outlook

| Javier Correonero |

After expanding its operations to many European and Latin American countries during the 1990s and 2000s, Telefonica has turned around its strategy in recent years to focus on four key markets: Spain, the United Kingdom, Germany, and Brazil. Telefonica is divesting or restructuring its Latin American operations (except Brazil) and infrastructure assets such as towers or noncore fiber networks and intends to use the proceeds to reduce debt, a strategy we look favorably upon.

Style is an investment factor that has a meaningful impact on investment risk and returns. Style is calculated by combining value and growth scores, which are first individually calculated.

High-growth stocks tend to represent the technology, healthcare, and communications sectors. They rarely distribute dividends to shareholders, opting for reinvestment in their businesses. More value-oriented stocks tend to represent financial services, utilities, and energy stocks. These are established companies that reliably pay dividends.
