Brazil is in the toilet right now with political turmoil, scandals, and a currency that has lost over half of its value compared to the USD since late 2011. Of course, that doesn't mean there aren't good companies from Brazil. It does mean you should find them and reap the rewards when the situation corrects itself (which will take a few years by current observations) and/or other investors catch on (or look for safe havens.)

Braskem is one of those solid companies. It will likely struggle with beaten down commodity prices, but in the long term the company is well-positioned to maintain its awesome growth. New projects in North American ethane (Appalachia, Mexico, and elsewhere), continuing to build out its green chemicals business (ethanol to ethylene), and investing in engineered biology platforms (engineered yeast for manufacturing isoprene, or natural rubber) serve as encouraging signs that management is thinking long term and investing where the market will be 10, 15, and 20 years from now.
