On CAPS, 98% of the 511 members who have rated Millicom believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include stock4Lee and All-Star vitrified, who is ranked in the top 1% of our community.

In March, vitrified made a bullish call on the operator of emerging-markets telecoms:

I like the outlook for deep emerging countries, particularly in Africa, where mobile use dominates. Flat-world economic opportunities will drive growth and demand in the decade ahead.

Three months later, stock4Lee also dialed into Millicom:

It has become a cellular world. Developing countries don't have to spend time and money string landlines when they can quickly put up towers to build infrastructure. Any market share in a developing country will pay off.
