Petrobras (PBR -1%) shares continue to slump after yesterday's earnings-induced rout, but Raymond James says the downdraft isn't over. PBR trades at a mere 8.1x 2014 earnings, but the firm warns not to be seduced by the apparent bargain price, citing slim visibility on a domestic production rebound, the highest financial leverage among peers, and another year of dramatically negative free cash flow.

    8x is not atypical for oil majors, and PBR carries a risk of further discount due to heavy gov't influence (no, I didn't use the stronger term, looting).

    I had a position in this, but I dumped it recently after seeing what you've been alluding to. Companies based in countries like Argentina and Brazil just won't be investable until those governments letting the free market work.

    And here we are again.... As many stocks move higher with the dow over 14K, PBR continues to carve out new lows.
