Brazilian Small Cap Companies to Watch For in the Race to World Cup 2014 and Summer Olympic Games 2016

Friday, October 7th, 2011

Brazil is hosting World Cup 2014 and is expected to invest over $80 Billion on preparations for
the event which is less than 1000 days away.


There is in fact a lot of optimism for Brazil’s medium-term prospects based on its current strong
fundamental position and opportunities for infrastructure investment in preparation for the
hosting of the World Cup 2014 and the Olympic Games in 2016. During that time, Brazil is also
expected to become a major oil exporter thanks to the massive offshore oil discovery in 2007.

The Brazilian economy is the 7th largest economy in the world with a growth rate of 4-5% . This
type of steady growth makes Brazil appealing. Brazil is not dependent on any foreign oil, is a
leader in alternative energy and produces more ethanol than Europe and Asia not to mention that
Brazil is the second largest producer of iron ore in the world.

With a steady work force and abundance of natural resources Brazil has become very active in
manufacturing a myriad of products from high tech jets to hot Brazilian bikinis along with
phenomenal IT and Telecom development.

We no longer look at Brazil as a country with an unstable currency or super inflation rather a

mega opportunity for investment.

To make money in investing in any emerging market you want to find a small company that is
growing exponentially, trading well below its value while its sales are soaring.

While that’s true for any market the trick for the individual investor is to track down such a
company in the early stage to maximize return.

On Sep. 30th, 2011 the Brazilian government announced $3.25 Billion in tax cuts to
telecommunications companies who will improve their networks over the next
three years to insure world class communications during the upcoming events. That means about
$11 Billion in additional investment in the IT and Telecom sectors.

One Brazilian Small Cap company who just recently became public in the United States is
Midas Medici Group Holdings, Inc. The stock just recently began trading here and the symbol is
(MMED:US) or (OTCBB:MMED).

This means you can buy it right here through your own broker or on-line without having to have
a Brazilian brokerage account! Additionally, it means you get the benefit in investing in one
stock not 100’s through the various mutual funds.

MMED is one of those companies who will benefit from the slough of investment money to
the IT and Telecom industries. For example they just announced a new $2,000,000 contract for
IT upgrades for public offices in Santa Catarina, Brazil and another $3 million contract from
CEMIG (NYSE: CIG) to improve its data centers in Brazil.

According to Larry Isen, editor of “The OTC Journal”, www.otcjournal.com/otcb/ , the company
is expected to have revenues exceeding $130,000,000 in 2011 with its acquisition of Brazilian IT
firm Cimcorp who had over $80,000,000 in revenues in 2010.

The company only has 10 million shares issued and outstanding and is trading at around $3.50
per share! MMED should be trading at around $10 or more based on its current status and
expected growth according to industry experts.

The company has also just announced that it will be applying to trade on a senior exchange and it
already seems to qualify for either the NASDAQ or AMEX.

It’s a newly traded company here and no one seems to know about it but the stock play is
compelling.

Brazil Small Cap Companies Cash in on $80 Billion Count Down to World Cup 2014 in Brazil – Midas Medici Group Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB:MMED) is in the Hunt

Tuesday, October 4th, 2011

To make money in investing in any emerging market you want to find a small company that is growing
exponentially, trading well below its value while its sales are going through the roof. Well that’s true for
any market but the trick for the individual investor is to track down such a company in the early stages to
optimize return.

Let’s take a look at Brazil, The Brazilian economy is the 7th largest economy in the world with a growth
rate of 4-5% . This type of steady growth makes Brazil appealing. Brazil is not dependent on any
foreign oil, is a leader in alternative energy and produces more ethanol than Europe and Asia not to
mention that Brazil is the second largest producer of iron ore in the world.

With a steady work force and abundance of natural resources Brazil has become very active in
manufacturing everything from the jet aircraft to washing machines along with phenomenal IT and
Telecom development.

We no longer look at Brazil as a country with an unstable currency or super inflation rather a mega
opportunity for investment.

For one thing Brazil is hosting World Cup 2014 and on Sep. 30th the Brazilian government just announced
$3.25 Billion in tax cuts to telecommunications companies who will improve their networks over the next
three years.

That means about $11 Billion in additional investment in the IT and Telecom sectors. This is in addition
to the already committed $80 Billion plus Brazil is spending on preparations for The World Cup which is
less than 1000 days away!

Now rather than buying into Brazilian mutual funds ETF’s, GTF’s or ADR’s we want to buy a Brazilian
small cap stock that trades on the US stock market that we can buy through our regular U.S. brokerage
account through a broker or on-line.

One Brazilian Small Cap company who just recently became public in the United States is Midas Medici
Group Holdings, Inc. The stock trades here and the symbol is (MMED:US) or (OTCBB:MMED).

IT and Telecom Companies who will benefit from World Cup 2014 in Brazil; $11 Billion in New Investment

Sunday, October 2nd, 2011

In a world full of undiscovered opportunities its time to take a good look at investing in Brazil.  Brazil’s steadily growing economy, stable financial market and  liberal investment climate makes Brazil a good choice when considering investing in emerging markets.

 

Brazil, continues to exhibit many new growth opportunities as we should expect from any emerging market.  However, for direct investing in Brazil one needs to comply with various regulatory procedures which makes it complicated for the individual investor such as having a brokerage account in Brazil and a Brazilian bank account!

 

There is also the offshore investment route which provides opportunity to invest  in Brazilian stocks through ADRs (American Deposit Receipts), GDRs (Global Depository Receipts), and ETF’s (Exchange Traded Funds) and mutual funds of the like in global markets but then again you are still limited in the mutual fund malaise.

 

The Brazilian economy is the 7th largest economy in the world with a growth rate of 4-5% .   This type of steady growth makes Brazil appealing.   Brazil is not dependent on any foreign oil, is a leader in alternative energy and produces more ethanol than Europe and Asia not to mention that Brazil is the second largest producer of iron ore in the world.

 

With a steady work force and abundance of natural resources Brazil has become very active in manufacturing everything from the finest jets to washing machines along with their ever advancing IT and Telecom development.

 

We no longer look at Brazil as a country with an unstable currency or super inflation rather a mega opportunity for investment but how?

 

The BM&F Bovespa is their main exchange which we can’t just pick a company and buy stocks from our E-Trade account or on the Sao Paulo Exchange.  We would have to have an account there with a Brazilian broker and a Brazilian Bank Account. Seems pretty complicated.  Then as I mentioned we can buy the indexes but even then we aren’t real close to our desired investment.

 

Then I realized there must be some Brazilian companies that trade on the NYSE, or other US Exchanges and I was right.  Brasil Telecom (NYSE: BTM  Embraer (NYSE: ERJ) , Petroleo Brasileiro (NYSE: PBR) , CPFL Energia (NYSE: CPL) ,  Sadia (NYSE: SDA)

 

However all of these companies are the big established stayed and true slower growh companies that are more like blue chip companies.  I mean these aren’t the three to four times your investment kind of companies we’re looking for.  We’re looking to double or triple our money and the way to do that is to look at the small cap companies.

 

To make money in investing in an emerging market like Brazil you want to find a small company that is growing exponentially, trading well below its value while its sales are going through the roof.  Whats more one that I could purchase through my broker in the United States or On-Line.

Two Things are happening right now in Brazil to bring in the focus  even tighter.

 

For one thing Brazil is hosting World Cup 2014 and the Brazilian government just announced $3.25 Billion in tax cuts to telecommunications companies who will improve their networks over the next  three years.

 

That means about $11 Billion in additional investment in the sector.  This is good news for everybody.

 

One Brazilian Small Cap company who just recently became public in the United States is Midas Medici Group Holdings, Inc. The stock trades here and the symbol is (MMED:US) or (OTC:MMED)

Midas is an innovative green IT company in the fields of Smart Grid Solutions, Virtualization, Cloud Computing and Data Management.

 

MMED is one of those companies who will benefit from the slough of investment money to the IT and Telecom industries.

 

According to Larry Isen, editor of The OTC Journal,  the company is expected to have revenues exceeding $100,000,000 in 2011 with its acquisition of Brazilian IT firm Cimcorp who had over $80,000,000 in revenues in 2010.   The OTC Journal recently picked up coverage of MMED.

This is one of those opportunities that should be acted on.  After a little research the company only has 10 million shares issued and outstanding and is trading at around $2.50.  MMED should be trading at $10 or more based on its current status and expected growth according to industry experts.

 

It’s a newly traded company here and no one seems to know about it but the stock play is compelling.  The company website is www.midasmedici.com <http://www.midasmedici.com>

We’ll be on the look-out for other opportunities like MMED in Brazil but this is a solid BUY by any measure.

China stocks who went public in the United States have been under tremendous pressure.

Wednesday, August 17th, 2011

You may be aware that many China stocks who went
public in the United States have been under tremendous pressure.   There have been allegations of fraud and shady dealings and shaky corporate governance.  It is  alleged that these practices dominate this sector of now truly undervalued Chinese stocks.

 

It turns out that its true!  Many  Chinese companies use all sorts of
fraudulent means to “cook the books”!    As a result many of the bad
apples have already been halt traded or delisted or under investigation
by U.S. regulators.

 

Larry Isen is putting together a Webinar to disucss and disclose many of the
common elements of fraudulent activity in this sector.   Since the news
broke about these practices, the entire sector became under attack and
short sellers teamed up to profit from their demise.  The numbers are
staggering.  Check out http://bit.ly/EmergingChinaStocks and sign in to get information about the webinar and the newsletter.

 

The sad thing is that there are hundreds of companies in this sector who
are not criminals and not cheating or consumed in fraudulent practices.
This is where I believe there is a huge opportunity to invest in truly
undervalued Chinese stocks and could expect to triple the investment.

 

To uncover true opportunities where companies are trading below cash value and/or minimal multiples to earnings there needs to be an extra layer of transparency specifically designed for this emerging market.

 

Larry Isen suggests  that “ good companies”  will submit to and engage a
highly specialized forensic due diligence report that addresses all of
these  loose ends and unknowns where basic GAAP accounting and SEC
reports  fall short.

 

This type of forensic due diligence is offered by China 360.  Larry is aware
of the companies who are under review and will share them in his news
letter where investors will ultimately find a safe source of information
to get to those companies that should be trading many times their
current trading prices especially given the recent hit to the market
when they were hit even harder.

 

Everyone who invests in the stock market is looking for growth stocks and
security.  Larry Isen is an expert in the sector and has a lot to say
about it in his newsletter http://bit.ly/EmergingChinaStocks

 

Once again Larry is putting together a webinar which will delve into the
issues and investment opportunities.  Just visit his website and sign in
and the webinar will be announced.
