Petrobras Brasileiro: Corruption undermines Fitch Rating

NYSE:PBR   PETROLEO BRASILEIRO SA PETROBR
I've flagged Brazil's state-owned mega-energy firm Petrobras Brasileiro ADR             (NYSE: PBR             ) because the SEC is investigating the energy firm for money-laundering and corruption, thus skewing Fitch Ratings of PBR             . Since PBR             owns a Texan refinery, PBR             it is accountable under US jurisdiction.

In part, the USD 1.1 billion series 2014-3 notes 'BBB', Outlook Stable and BRl             2.4 billion series 2014-2 special indebtedness interests notes affirmed at 'AAAsf(bra)', Outlook Stable.

PBR's cartel is backing a capital investment program at USD 220 billion between 2014 and 2018.


PBR             is an asset to be used when the market performance is shaky. Its personality

Currently the downside calculation of price per share: $.54.
