Credit downgrade threat sinks Brazil stocks as Petrobras slumps

The Ibovespa fell for a second day, led by Petroleo Brasileiro SA, after Finance Minister Joaquim Levy said that a credit downgrade by Moody’s Investors Service is more likely if Brazil doesn’t make economic adjustments. Traders also pushed down the value of shares after newspaper Folha de S Paulo reported Saturday that lower house President Eduardo Cunha would rebel against the administration by blocking a fiscal-austerity package designed to shrink the budget deficit. His announcement escalated a political crisis that already had driven President Dilma Rousseff’s popularity to a record low and revived talks of impeachment.

Petrobras damps Ibovespa’s weekly gain as crude prices decline

State-controlled oil producer Petroleo Brasileiro SA pared the weekly advance of the Ibovespa stock index as a decline in crude dimmed the prospects for the company’s offshore investments. Petrobras slipped to a one-week low Friday as the raw material fell toward $50 a barrel in New York. The oil driller, which is at the center of Brazil’s unprecedented corruption probe and accounts for about 10 percent of the benchmark stock index’s weighting, has said investments in offshore production are economically viable with crude above $45.
