Responding to percolating inflation even amid lame economic growth, Brazil's central bank hikes its benchmark rate for the first time in nearly 2 years, lifting the Selic 25 bps to 7.5%. The poor Bovespa - the bank's recently-completed rate-cutting cycle failed to do much for Brazilian stocks, and now it's back to tightening again. EWZ -31.9% over the last 2 years.

    Contrary to the common belief that all Brazil stocks are doing poorly, take a look at the 5-year chart for $UGP. I've owned them all at some point or another and have found $UGP to be the only good for anything other than trading in and out on the wild swings caused by the Brazil government's unique mix of incompetence and corruption.
