Some fools like it for 2013

Its problem is that it makes its money in Brazil, which has had a bad run recently. Over 6, 12 and 24 months it has under performed the EWZ and the EWZ has under performed a lot of things. Brazil relies on exports of Minerals and Ags (a lot to China). China, may pick up, or it may not.

The olympics are coming and people are hoping that will spark the economy down there.

Inflation worries

Don't know enough about ARCO to comment, but you should be well diversified and not have too much in one stock. The closer you are to retirement the more conservative you become.

If you have trouble sleeping at night because of the size of this investment, lighten up. If you are only losing sleep because of past losses, maybe not. If you are going to be over concentrated on a single stock, you better know everything about it, and in this case, the country it relies on.
