    • Here's a cut and paste of one of the articles discussing the GS downgrade:

    • I found a record of the Goldman downgrade online yesterday with a simple Google search. Can't prove it to you, but it's there.

      Thing is - after an 18% drop in 3 days - they might not rate it a sell now. Gafisa went from the top of its 3 month range to the bottom of it in just a handful of days. I bought all the way into the close yesterday, with some nice buys at $3.69, 3.70, and 3.72. The shorts just pushed it til the last second of trading. Maybe there was a large institution that wanted out and Goldmans gave them the out they were looking for? It is very frustrating to be a long-term investor and be early (as in now) or late (as in a year ago) in a residential builder. But once the real estate cycle in a country turns, by its very nature it lasts for several years. I became a Gafisa investor this week.

      The best article I have read on Gafisa is on seekingalpha by a man named Caiman Flores: "Gafisa: A Speculative Play On Brazilian Residential Property"

      Sentiment: Buy
