"The situation in Mexico is, in my view, a horror show because basically, at this stage, seven years after the big crisis which almost—which did make them bankrupt—this company finds that it doesn't have controls in Mexico and lets $400 million walk out the door," he said.

"It might back up a little bit with the group, but I think ultimately you're looking at low-$20s to mid-$20s," he said.
