$0.02 below it's trailing P/E ratio! The new Brasil President will raise foreign import tariffs if they try dumping iron and steel here! Internal growth is good here even without export demand.

Brazil is gearing up to host both the World Cup and the Olympics, that means massive investments in new facilities as well as general infrastructure. I expect steady increasing rev's for the next 4 years.

This is a top notch company in a growing market. It has great profit margins. Plus, with the falling U.S. dollar, it is even sweeter.

If you believe in the global recovery and the infrastructure spending that will be used in places like the USA and China to push it along, you have to think that companies like Gerdau will benefit from it.
