Hutchison Telecommunications

(SEHK: 2332)

Hong Kong

This global provider of telecom services controlled by Hong Kong billionaire Li Ka-Shing has struggled with losses in recent years. But it's counting on growth in mobile telephone services in such markets as India, Thailand, Israel, and Vietnam to power future revenue and profit growth. Hutchison's global base of mobile-phone users rocketed up 62%, to 21.1 million subscribers, as of the end of March vs. the year-ago period. India is a particularly fertile prospect for the company. In January, Hutchison bought India's BPL Mobile Cellular.
