  • A Preliminary Case For Chile Over Mexico [View article]

    Hola! Ulysses: Very informative article. Certainly supports Caiman Valores economic opinion of Chile too. I particularly appreciate your addressing LATAM social/politcal issues in your concluding remarks. I consider those issues to be the #1 concern in investing in LATAM One never knows what Hugo, Christina or Dilma have in store for for their people and their businesses..., yet alone their stockholders....CAVEAT EMPTOR.

  • The Number Of Deaths Is Increasing And Where To Invest [View article]
    Trustyourwork: Question...? When a "preneed" customer dies..., is his(her) funeral/burial cost booked as revenue then or was it booked earlier in the transaction? I would think(?) that if this preneed revenue is booked to STON at date of death.., then there should be an on going stream of revenue coming into them for years to come...? BAX

  • Fire Up Your Portfolio With Transportadora De Gas Del Sur's 11.8% High Yield Bonds [View article]
    I agree with the above authors. Christina Fernandez is a loose cannon. Investing in Argentina is courting financial suicide. Randy's really sticking his neck out on this one.... BAX. PS: My old boss at Dean Witter & Co(Ed Witter) once told me.., "there's a BIG difference between investing in stocks and bonds(?)...., when you buy bonds, you purchase them with the understanding( guarantee) that you're going to get your investment returned...." I don't think Christina is troubled about this....

  • Caiman Valores Positions For 2013: Colombia, Chile Offer Best Upside In Latin America [View article]
    CV: As usual..., excellent well thought out comments. I appreciate your addressing the "nationalism issues" in great detail for this is the big risk in LATAM investing.

The Peruvians appear quite prosperous and there's many new cars, the restaurants are full of people. Life appears to be good for many people..;things are changing in LATAM and they appear to be for the better...
