The earthquake in Chile was a human tragedy. Rebuilding from the destruction will require massive investment. ICA is well positioned to obtain major revenue as part of the rebuilding effort. If you can think of any additional firms that will benefit from the Chilean rebuild efforts, please let me know!

ICA is the ticker for Empresas ICA which is one of Mexico's top construction firms with its fingers in everything from subways to airports. Operating in Latin America and the US, ICA provides construction, design, procurement, management, and engineering services for a variety of civil and industrial projects including highways, hotels, manufacturing plants, power facilities, and airports. It also operates toll roads through public-private partnerships, runs water/wastewater systems, and builds affordable housing. Majority-owned Grupo Aeroportuario del Centro Norte (GACN) operates more than a dozen airports in Mexico. ICA is divided into construction, infrastructure, housing development, and corporate segments. This company is in no way a pure play on Chilean reconstruction, but neither was Shaw on the reconstruction of New Orleans (see below for Shaw record after Hurricane Katrina).

Mexico infrastructure play. PEG ratio is above 2 with earning estimates potentially too high to begin with. On top of this, the company has lots of debt.

PR today says they may get into Panama Cannal expansion project. Housing unit to get listed. They already have a rapidly growing construction portfolio. Their richest holder Carlos Slim owns a bank!

They have com a long way from the Mexican Toll Road consession fiasco. Recently had a stock split.

Get ready to see this one move!
