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.
