Earlier this week , robertshrestha tapped Turkcell as a tempting turnaround opportunity:
Stock's been beaten up on Euro fears and partner disputes. This is a bet that both concerns will be resolved eventually and the juicy dividend coming back. I like my chances.
In fact, Turkcell boasts a robust three-year average operating margin of 23%. That's higher than that of other large telecom plays like Vodafone (16%), AT&T
CAPS member 4thRockFool elaborates on the Turkcell bull case:
Turkish telecom with nice [previous >4.5%] dividend. Dispute among three partners -- Sweden's TeliaSonera, Russia's Altimo and Turkey's Cukurova -- over control of the company has resulted in delay of annual meeting and failure to make annual dividend distribution. Stock has been hammered presenting a buying opportunity for those with an appetite for risk.
