As Brazil emerges from a two-year recession, it is attracting the attention of many investors who are shifting more of their assets away from the U.S. stock market in favor of foreign stocks. With Brazil’s economic activity increasing at its highest pace in the past eight years last month, significant momentum is returning to the Brazilian stock market.
This week’s Momentum Trader Alert is Ultrapar Participacoes S.A., (UGP), one of the largest distributors of liquefied petroleum gas in Brazil. The company is also engaged in the storage and transportation of other petrochemical and chemical products.
