Publicly Traded Companies Run Intro Trouble In Venezuela

Economic troubles in Venezuela have rippled into the global stock market. Several companies heavily involved with oil are experiencing exposure problems due to slow payments from Venezuela. In simple terms, exposure problems could be referred to risks incurred by various companies due to the instability in Venezuela’s economy. Investors who buy into these companies through purchasing publicly traded shares are buying the exposure problems.
Investment advisors like Danilo Diaz Granados are actively suggesting to investors great and small to avoid certain companies due to their position in the Venezuelan market. In essence, companies are reliant on revenue from the country and are not receiving it. Some have dubbed this “working for free”, although that is a simplistic description of the problem occurring in Venezuela.

Ultimately, if companies are putting out money in Venezuela and not receiving due payments, the losses end up being reflected in the stock prices. No company is going to increase its involvement in the Venezuelan market with these conditions. Likely, there will be decisions to start pulling out and decreasing efforts and activities in the country. No publicly traded company wants to experience a decline in its stock price and surely will back out of deals that are dragging the price downward.

Venezuela truly does need to take drastic action in order to reverse its current economic situation. Granted, the government is trying but the efforts do not seem to be delivering any sustained results.
