Not at this time. I am underwater with it. About the best telecom company in Turkey. All emerging market countries are having problems and new subscribers are getting harder to find. Could be a good long term hold.
Fast growing, young population, wider exposure to a number of developing countries (see recent deals), losses in subsidiaries almost eliminated, just got a 10 year licece to sell sport gambling on mobile. Good divi yield and some free shares at times. Keep holding for a bright future.
low p/e good dividend largest cell carrier in a country of 80,000,000 people and growing every day. large footprint in adjoining markets and also muslim world. turkey is a growth story and this is the largest turkish adr, so when you buy TKC you are also buying into the turkish growth story. when (not if) turkey is accepted into the EU, probably in 5 years or less, this stock will zoom past $100 a share. it is grossly undervalued right now given future growth projections and potential of turkish market should be in mid 20's IMHO before labor day...
I believe it is the only exchange-traded Turkish ADR. There are some on the pink sheets (e.g. AKBTY). There is an exchange traded fund (TKF) and an ETF (TUR). In other words, there are very few ways to invest directly in Turkey, call it a scarcity factor.
There is a puff piece in today's WSJ about the growth of the Turkish economy. I have visted Turkey several times on business. They are pain in the a** customers, but there are a lot of smart people working very hard there.
