Here's a recap of the third-week selections:

(NYSE: TEF) -- Analyst Jordan DiPietro recommended telecom giant Telefonica due to its high dividend and foreign exposure. While the company might be based out of Spain, it gets nearly 65% of its revenues abroad and has valuable operations in Latin America. Click here to see Telefonica's buy recommendation.

Annaly Capital
(NYSE: NLY) -- Editor Ilan Moscovitz says that if you like dividends, Annaly Capital should be right up your alley. The REIT borrows money at short term rates and reinvests in longer term securities. Thanks to favorable interest rate conditions, the "spread" between Annaly's borrowing costs and investing returns has soared, leading to a dividend that approaches 16% annually. Moscovitz sees multiple positive trends on the horizon that should keep Annaly's fortunes soaring in the coming years. Click here to see Annaly Capital's buy recommendation.

National Bank of Greece
(NYSE: NBG) -- Motley Fool Global Gains Advisor Tim Hanson thinks you'd have to be crazy like a fox to invest in this Greek bank. While National Bank of Greece may suffer from having the stigma of Greece in its name, the bank also has valuable operations in Turkey, sticky deposits, and its size should benefit it in coming years. While Greek default looms over the fortune of the bank, Hanson feels the initial success of Greece's Austerity plan shows the country is in better shape than investors give it credit for.

Yum! Brands
(NYSE: YUM) -- Duke Street Advisor Rich Greifner says that investors hungry for growth in China need look no further than Yum! Brands. The company, which owns brands like Kentucky Fried Chicken, Pizza Hut, and Taco Bell among others, was a first-mover into the Chinese market and has managed to expand at a rapid rate. Not only that, but Yum! has a solid distribution network in the country that allows it to expand to midsize cities, and has been extremely successful at adapting to local tastes.

(NYSE: COH) -- Fool writer Dayana Yochim thinks Coach stands head and shoulders above its retail peers. While Coach's stock is trading at a rich price tag, Yochim says the company has earned that distinction through years of consistent performance, a solid brand, and an all-star management team. Also, Yochim sees strong growth opportunities abroad. Right now only 28% of Coach's business is international, with most of those sales coming in Japan. This leaves Coach with rich opportunities in expanding markets like China and Korea. Click here to see Coach's buy recommendation.
