Telecom Argentina S.A. (ADR)

  • After a Wild Ride, Is This Company Getting Serious?

    By Mike Thiessen - May 14, 2013 | Tickers: AMX, NTL, TEO, VOD

    Over the past year, Buenos Aires-based telecom holding company Nortel Inversora's stock (NYSE: NTL) has been on a wild ride. Unfortunately, this has not been a good thing for investors owning the stock. A trader who purchased the company in Mid-May of 2011 would have paid at least $25 per share for the privilege of doing so. In the subsequent 24-month period, the company's stock has traded in more »

  • Telecom Services in Latin America, Revisited.

    By Damian Illia - May 8, 2013 | Tickers: AMX, TEO, TSU

    Over the past few years wireless data consumption has increased dramatically due to the rapid adoption of smartphones and tablets, as well as world economic growth.

    Although Latin America’s economic growth has slowed down, there is one more reason to keep telecom stocks in any portfolio: they are defensive. This means that cash flows for telecom companies are relatively stable over the years compared to the rest of the more »

  • 3 Great Calls and 1 Recommendation

    By Ryan Peckyno - February 22, 2013 | Tickers: HPQ, SWY, TEO, TEF

    On occasion, I find it worthwhile to do what a lot of us don’t do enough of and reflect.  After all, reflection is how you uncover flaws in your thinking and improve your analytical skills. 

    For less than two months now, I have written a few posts here and there for the Motley Fool.  So let’s look at a few of the calls that I have made thus more »

  • Telecom Argentina: A Value Investor’s Dream

    By Ryan Peckyno - January 2, 2013 | Tickers: ORAN, TEO, TEF

    There are few stocks that offer investors what Telecom Argentina (NYSE: TEO) does: (1) revenue and earnings growth of more than 25%; (2) a dividend of over 8%; and (3) a solid balance sheet.  After all, that growth rate rivals many of the dot com darlings, the dividend yield is higher than most utilities, and the fact that the company has a solid balance sheet is surprising because Telecom Argentina more »

  • Argentina: Value Trap or Long Term Opportunity?

    By Federico Zaldua - November 12, 2012 | Tickers: GGAL, TEO

    Will Argentina Become Venezuela?

    I don’t think so (yet) although a mix of: 1) FX Exchange Controls (since official exchange rate is largely overvalued), 2) this year's government nationalization of YPF 3) doubtful official inflation statistics (true inflation rate is running around +20%) and above all 4) a remarkably anti-market rhetoric make me question whether every security that looks awfully cheap is a potential value trap or an more »

  • 4 Mid-Caps with Huge Potential

    By Chad Henage - October 16, 2012 | Tickers: ARLP, CLF, TEO, TNH

    What if I told you there are multiple companies selling for at least a 20% discount to their 52 week high, have high yields, and have shown significant earnings growth, would you be interested? For many investors this would be exactly what they're looking for, because in theory you are getting a chance of good earnings growth which could lead to capital gains combined with a high-yield for current income. Using the Fool.com CAPS Screener, I found four mid-cap stocks that fit the above criteria. While this isn't necessarily a recommendation to buy each one, it certainly seems like a good starting point for further research.

  • Peter Lynch Would Love This Telecom Stock

    By Soroush Pour - July 17, 2012 | Tickers: CMGE, DTEGY.PK, DCM, TEO, TEF, VOD

    In the annals of contemporary financial folklore, there may not be an investment guru as admired as Peter Lynch.  Contrary to the beliefs of most of his peers, Lynch believes that you, the everyday investor, can beat the Street because of your independence.  See, while professional money managers live and die by their yearly returns, the average Joe is able to keep plugging along, investing in companies for the long more »

  • Integral Argentinean Companies

    By Mary Posey - June 22, 2012 | Tickers: MELI, TEO, YPF

    Argentina is well known for both its mining potential and its intervening government. However, Argentina’s government has been working hard to loosen its grip and move away from strict and often crippling regulations. This has opened up the Argentinean market and a number of companies that provide good value for the long-term buyer. Below are three such companies, each operating in a different sector, that share in Argentina’s more »

  • Argentina: Where Only the Brave Dare to Invest

    By Andrés Cardenal - March 29, 2012 | Tickers: BMA, IRS, TEO, YPF

    Argentinean stocks have suffered tremendous losses lately, many of these companies look deeply undervalued, but government intervention makes investing in Argentinean corporations a very risky proposition right now. Sooner or later there will be a lot of money to be made by investing in these stocks, but the timing looks too dangerous at this moment.
