KT Corporation is a telcommunications services provider in Korea. I like this stock because it is a consumer staple and quasi-monopoly. These two facts protect the company from economic risk. Despite the obvious stability of the company it has declined in line with the stock market over the last two years. At the present price of $19.31, the stock is selling at 1.05X book value and 9.2 times this year's expected earnings (which are somewhat depressed). The balance sheet looks sound.
