The average industry number of debt leverage is around 2.5x. This makes it very weird for a telco operator to have such low debt leverage. The reason could be linked to the comparison between its prices in Turkish Lira and USD. The depreciation of the Turkish Lira against the dollar is has increased consistently. The company has kept the prices of subscription services in accordance with the inflation rate.

The company has although proven itself to be consistent in paying dividends over the last decade. The decline in the shares of the company could not be linked to its performance its numbers look good for telco operators. The general reason could be the dislike of Turkish stocks by the investors as of now. The GDP of Turkey is expected to grow which will definitely have a positive effect on its stock.
