No. 2: Turkcell
Q3 Return: +21%
YTD Return: +29%
Investor: Charles Sizemore
Charles Sizemore, editor of the Sizemore Investment Letter, has watched his pick just keep on moving up. Turkcell (NYSE:TKC) gained one spot in Q2, then climbed three more in Q3 for a solid second-place standing.
That leap came thanks to outsized 21% gains — the best of all expert picks — in the past three months. And it happened despite the soap opera drama surrounding the company.
Sizemore remains sure, though, that the main boardroom dispute will soon be resolved — and that such a resolution should result in the dividend getting paid again, which would boost the stock even further. Heck, maybe even boost it to first place.
Even without the dividend, this conservative way to play the emergence of Turkey and its up-and-coming middle class has been a winner so far — and is indeed a contender for the final first-place title.
