Why Analysts Expect Vale SA’s Earnings to Rise

On August 31, Vale SA (VALE) had returned 7.9% year-to-date. Lately, Brazilian stocks are being pressured due to economic and political issues facing the country. The Brazilian real has been under tremendous pressure against the US dollar, which led to a widespread sell-off. The iShares MSCI Brazil ETF (EWZ) has lost ~20.0% so far this year in light of these concerns.
