MTN Group: An interesting way to gain exposure to the African growth story (Infographic)

I came across MTN Group Ltd. (OTCPK:MTNOY) during a stock pitch competition I took part in and won earlier this year. I decided to share my analysis of the security with you today. The stock has recovered slightly from the selloff it saw in the last few months, but I believe there’s more growth ahead. I will take a quick look at the company, the industry, macro elements, as well as a fundamental outlook of the company.
