    • Socialist government. There is greater risk. That being said, I still think 5 years out that you will do ok. I would not bet the house on it......diversify. One plus is that Obama would rather have drilling in Brazil than in the US.

Now being forced by the socialist gov to invest in job growth like refinaries, ethanol production, etc. Not to mention over valued real will haunt PBR in the future.

Today you get a tax ruling the PBR may owe billins of dollars to the gov in income taxes. Even the locals complain of a lack of tranparency at PBR. Looks like an airline stock.
