Latin American trees offer investment opportunity Commentary: Latin American timber should be on investors’ lists

Latin American trees offer investment opportunity Commentary: Latin American timber should be on investors’ lists

"First of all, forestry in Latin America means an entirely different thing than it does in the United States. In the U.S., many forestry companies are traded as real-estate investment trusts, or REITs, where their earnings are driven by activities such as paper and pulp production, lumber and the holdings of their timberlands.

Kimberly-Clark de Mexico
Kimberly-Clark de Mexico, which employs some 8,000 people, has been recognized for earnings stability during the global financial crisis.
In Latin America, companies tend to be defined by what they produce, not by their land holdings. For example, the region’s two largest forestry companies are Chile’s Arauco, which is divided into five divisions, including lumber, pulp and paper; and Brazil’s Fibria Celulose SA FBR -3.60% , a producer of eucalyptus pulp."

"He's wanted for contempt of court in Arizona. He is under investigation by Italian police over his connection with an international bond scandal exposed by Reuters in August and totaling at least $500 million. And he is named as a key player in one of the first criminal indictments following the collapse of Iceland's economy.




But last week you could find David Spargo in a holiday resort on the Spanish island of Majorca. He's a regular at La Batucada cocktail bar, where he might be drinking anything from a cocktail to a beer or whisky. Locals say he also enjoys playing on the 95-euro-a-round ($127) Alcanada golf course, which overlooks the sparkling Mediterranean."

Despite law against it, stealth commercials frequently HIDDEN as TV news

Despite law against it, stealth commercials frequently HIDDEN as TV news

"Alison Rhodes is passionate about child safety, and in hundreds of TV news interviews, the self-styled “Safety Mom” has talked up products designed to increase it. During a segment on WTTG’s morning news last year, for example, Rhodes showed off a home electronic monitor made by ADT and a backpack with a built-in alarm known as the iSafe bag.
“It’s amazing,” she gushed to Fox5 host Tony Perkins about the backpack. “It really is amazing.”
What neither Rhodes nor WTTG mentioned to viewers was this: The companies Rhodes mentioned on the air had paid her to plug their products. In effect, Rhodes’s appearance was a kind of stealth commercial dressed up as a traditional product-review interview."
