Latin America exposure, great dividend, strong bank that made it through the "great recession"

Creative mover in financial services in a region that has substantial unrealised economic potential... including with respect to international trade.

- South American trade bank that should benefit with the growth in the continent's GDP.
- Selling their Asset Management unit, which is a key move. This lowers the risk of the bank's asset and allows them to focus on their core business of making loans (think Wells Fargo, in the US).
- Valuation is cheap. P/B is now less than 1. Trailing P/E under 10.
- Dividend has doubled in the last three years and is now > 5%.

Bladex isn't a swing for the fences, but is a steady company with the wind at their back that should outperform over the long term.

Good, solid dividend. Very reasonable P/E ratio now. Exposure to Latin America and other markets. I like it better than many U.S. banks. I've invested in shares at $15.25 and $18. It may drop a bit in the short term (especially if the market corrects soon), but that just means more shares bought with the dividend. The long term looks good.

With the storm in Europe and the eventual growth of the Asian middle class, this Latin American bank is setting very pretty. Decent dividend while we wait.

Strong growth in target market. New offices should provide additional capital via deposits. Only question is if Latin America can keep it up.

Well, it's my first ever CAPS pick...so, perhaps I'm hoping for some luck. That said, I'm also hoping that positive macroeconomic conditions are favorable for international trade.

Profits come from the trade financing and M&A activity may increase the volume of trades. They may benefit from currency exchange rates as well.

Good value and growth play on Latin America. Strong banks (along with telecoms) are good ways to play emerging markets.

Made it through the last couple years in good shape without any external shape. Is poised to gain market share as others in the region struggle
