For Wall Street, Mexico is great once again
Mexico has a lot of well-known problems. Drugs. Poverty. Corruption. And on the corporate side, low-levels of production outside of the major multinational owned manufacturing firms. But despite the campaign rhetoric to build a wall and to knock Mexico down a peg in a Nafta do-over, there is one problem our neighbor does not have: beating every single equity market in the Americas to a pulp.
For investors, Mexico is great...again. After a slight lull in affection back in April, the market has rediscovered Mexico now for the past two months. The trend is seen continuing until the fourth quarter.
