Emerging Money: Is Global Growth Back?

Friday, 2 May 2008 | 6:16 PM ET

Is the global growth trade back on after S&P upgraded Brazil’s sovereign debt this week?

As we told you on Wednesday, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised Brazil's debt rating to investment grade, a key benchmark in the nation's economic transformation that sent domestic stocks soaring.

The long-awaited upgrade came two months after Brazil's Central Bank declared that the nation's debt crisis was over because Latin America's largest country had emerged as a net foreign creditor for the first time.

The upgrade suggests to me that global growth remains robust, says Tim Seymour. In EM I especially like tech names such as Taiwan Semiconductor and Infosys , he says.

I’m also bullish on some of the media names such as Central European Media Enterprises , CTC Media and Net Servicos de Comunicacao which I’ve spoken about in the past.
