Shares in Brazil's OGX Petroleum (OGXPY.PK -13.2%) slump as much as 17%, bringing its one-year plunge to near 90%, after the company controlled by billionaire Eike Batista had its credit rating cut by S&P. Adding to the poor sentiment is a Thursday report that Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff had refused to aid Batista's companies, which include LLX Logistica, now constructing the multibillion-dollar Acu Port.

    While it appears Battista personal worth keeps diminishing; let's not forget that OGXPY is a development company and to expect earnings and multiples now are ludicrous. Patience is a virtue and one has to expect that a serious partner will surely jump at the opportunity. I envision BG Pactual providing strategic advisement going forward

    I agree, people tend to act out of impulse. They see the stock losing value and they rush out without thinking twice. If you want to receive premium returns on your investments in need to be able to take some risk and above all, be patient.
