Magyar Telekom Falls as Hungary Economic Sentiment Deteriorates

Magyar Telekom Nyrt., the Hungarian unit of Deutsche Telekom AG (DTE), fell the first time in three days as Hungary’s economic sentiment index slid the most since 2008.

The shares fell 1.2 percent to 431 forint by 1:13 p.m. in Budapest. The sentiment index dropped to minus 24.9 from minus 19.3 in April as business and consumer moods turned “deeply pessimistic,” the GKI research institute in Budapest said today in an e-mailed statement.
