  • Mondel─ôz International - Packed Full Of Opportunities  [View article]
    I beleive Mondelez major competitors in the Emerging Markets, are both Nestle and Unilever, plus many local buscuit & chocolate manufacturers, specially here in Brasil.
    Hershey ,Kellogs & General Mills are insignificant in this market,
    Oreo is beaten by Nestle's similar & Cadbury Dairy Milk isn't even on the market.
    Nestle recently launched "Kit-Kat" ( Imported from Russia & Germany) which has swept the market , and are building a factory to manufacture locally in 2014.
    I personally would not be so sure of the success of Mondelez's predictions.
    Even more so with the situation of Cocoa & Coffee.

  • Dividend investors get an interesting new choice with the launch of the PowerShares S&P 500 High Dividend ETF (SPHD), which comes with a low volatility twist. The fund picks 75 of the highest-yielding S&P stocks, but creates a portfolio of just those 50 exhibiting the lowest volatility. With an expense ratio of 0.30%, it's among the cheapest of the high dividend ETFs.  [View news story]
    Excellent option for HD ETFs.

  • Brazil: Is It Worth The Risk?  [View article]
    I've been in Brasil since the 50s, it was always said here, that "Brasil is the country of the future". The future did come and lasted ten years,but it's gone. Brasil missed the boat,through bad administration of wealth and resources,lack of emphasis on infrastructure,education, and health, which have been replaced by corruption,impunity and now by delusions of grandeur (World Cup & Olympics) two events which Brasil can do without, at this moment there are many more urgent necessities.
    My answer is also no!!!!!!!
