SPOTLIGHT: Investors still frustrated with Vodafone


Vodafone investors continue to air their frustration over the world's largest mobile operator's shares remaining stagnant. There seems to be a lot of issues investors are grumbling about, which is putting a lot of pressure on CEO Arun Sarin. Not only do some of the carrier's top investors want Vodafone to sell its stake in Verizon Wireless to partner Verizon, but they are all around unhappy about the turnaround of its Japanese operations, the slow adoption of 3G services and how Vodafone is fairing in Europe's intense competition. It will be interesting to see whether Arun successfully stands up to investors, since he doesn't think it's wise to sell Vodafone's stake in Verizon Wireless, or is ousted.
