Howler of the Day: It’s Time to Invest in Chile and Colombia – Latin America’s Reigning ‘Good Guys

It’s Time to Invest in Chile and Colombia – Latin America’s Reigning ‘Good Guys’

By Martin Hutchinson, Contributing Editor, Money Morning

For decades, investors with an interest in Latin America were essentially limited to two choices: Invest in countries that were moderately badly run; or invest in countries that were truly dreadfully run.

Most recently, it's been the "dreadfully run" group that seems to be attracting new members: Bolivia, Ecuador and Nicaragua have subscribed to the economic and political doctrines of Hugo Chavez's Venezuela.

However, two elections this year have created a new category of Latin American country - the "truly well run" class - and installed the first two members: Chile and Colombia. As investors, we should rejoice, make them part of our portfolio, and keep an eagle eye out for other countries that may join this promising new category - the "good guys."

1. I would list Chile, Colombia, Brazil, and Panama
Those four have solid economies with high quality governance. The black list would include Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Bolivia, and Ecuador. I'm neutral about Argentina because I think their government is about to change.

3. I think she meant it's funny to consider Colombia and Chile good prospects
I don't agree, of course. I would put money in Colombia and Chile if I had money to spare. They do look very solid. But I'm surprised the guy left Brazil out. Panama has also been quite attractive, but there's so much money pouring into Panama, it may be overpriced.
