Global stock markets closed markedly lower on Tuesday amid a rising number of COVID-19 cases and on reports that the US will increase its “Do Not Travel” guidance to about 80% of countries worldwide, including Turkey. Selling pressure at BIST100 continued, ending the day 0.87% lower at 1,365. Meanwhile, the banking stocks diverged positively, rising by 0.95%. The continuing weakness in the market is partly due to a lack of story but also an adjustment in portfolio allocations ahead of the three upcoming IPOs. The IPO performances have been very good in 2021, so most retail investors are chasing for quick returns without differentiating among companies. We like Galata Wind(GWIND TI)’s green story and valuation better compared to the other names, AYDEM TI and BTREND TI, despite offering similar stories.
