Bottoming Out Of Brazilian Stocks?

May.15.14 | About: iShares MSCI (EWZ)

Summary

Scandals with state-owned companies may cause Dilma Rousseff to lose her bid for re-election.

Political change along with rebounding commodity prices are catalyst for turning around Brazil.

Increased media attention from World Cup will improve awareness of Brazilian stocks by investing community.

In this video, I give an overview of the changing political climate in Brazil (NYSEARCA:EWZ) and what it means for the stock market. It also includes my discussion on other catalysts that can drive Brazil's stock market and the leading companies in the country with US ADR's.

The economic situation is not in the best of shape, but just the hope of political turnaround can vastly change market sentiment. The recent election season in India is a clear example of this. Rising commodity prices and gained awareness from the World Cup should also help the country.

Stocks mentioned in the video:

Cozan (NYSE:CZZ)
