Nicked: but I'm sure "our" fund managers were all prepared for this?...;o) Ah yes the "beauty" of "globilization" investing.

16 minutes ago.....

LA PAZ, Bolivia - President Evo Morales nationalized Bolivia's natural gas industry Monday, ordering foreign energy companies to send their supplies to a state company for sales and industrialization.

Speaking at the southern San Alberto gas and oil field, Morales warned that companies who rejected the decree would have to leave Bolivia.

The main oil companies operating in Bolivia are Brazil's Petrobras, the Spanish-Argentine company Repsol YPF, British companies British Gas and British Petroleum, and France's Total.

Reminds me of Mexico and Telefonos de Mexico..... one day you own stock in TelMex, then boom, you own nada... then they privatize and sell stock again.


Or maybe not?

South American investments worry me more than any others. What surprises are in store in Venezuela?

I have only one thing to say to you: Aaaaiiiieeeeeeeeee! :o) Fortunately, EEM holds no Bolivia and only 0.22% Venezuela.

Good luck.

"I Know" Aaaaiiiieeeeeeeeee! :o)

It's not luck I need, rather just paying attention to the "noise". COP's been verdy verdy good to me for a very long time. Smart "crew", course then I've got Russia to worry about with them as well.....LOL Oh "H!" somedays it's just a dry hole in the "bidness"

Just read that Argentina is going to follow this exact same path.
Makes you wonder who is behind this get rich quick scheme at the expense of thousands of everyday folks.

Just like in this country, it's the wealthy "campaign contributors" (or "patrons") who support the officials. In this country we have the Koch brothers and a few others. Don't know who it is in Argentina, but there's someone equivalent pulling the strings.

I don't think he's quite as active as the Koch's (who founded, and continue to fund, the Tea Party), but sure...why not.

He mostly seemed to want Dubya gone...
