Human Rights has been a main topic for the past several hundred years. From slavery to dictatorship, there has always been the battle for universal human rights. Among human rights’ issues is the issue of the fact that Nicki Minaj has agreed to sing for the President’s family in Angola despite his history of brutality against the people.
To stop Nicki Minaj from violating certain human rights issues, the Human Rights Foundation sent an open letter to Nicki Minaj that explained to her that playing for the President of Angola was against moral principles. This open letter stated that Unitel Communications, the company that is funding her trip, is the company that is controlled by the Angolan President. This particular President has been declared by the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Organization to be a dictator.
The leader of this organization is Thor Halvorssen who is not only a human rights advocate, but is also a prominent film producer. His New York City-based headquarters was founded in 2005, after a family tragedy that inspire him to start up this beneficial human rights campaign. Mr. Halvorssen’s fight for human rights started long ago in 1989 when he was an organizer that campaigned against the South African Apartheid. Ever since the founding of the Human Rights Foundation, his opinions have been popular to publish in notable newspapers and magazines. Some of his opinions have been published in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Foreign Policy, The Economist, The Washington Post, as well as GQ.
Thor Halvorssen’s tie to human rights dates back through many family members that inspired him to choose this path. His goal is to help those that otherwise do not have a voice in oppressive countries such as Angola. Mr. Halvorssen’s dismay and protest against Nicki Minaj’s trip to Angola is a repeated event that happened with pop-star, Mariah Carey. Mariah Carey, much like Nicki Minaj, accepted the offer twice to sing for oppressive rulers for a substantial amount of money. Though she apologized for her offenses, she repeated the action more than once. The Human Rights Foundation is currently protesting against Nicki Minaj’s actions as Angola is a known country that has rigged elections that have elected the same leader for several years. With Nicki Minaj agreeing to sing for the family, this violates any human rights mission that the United States has to stop oppressive leaders in power.

Investment banker, Igor Cornelsen, knows the Brazilian banking business as well as the investment market. He retired from banking in 2010, but he is still a very active investor. His company, Bainbridge Investment Inc. is based in South Florida, but his love for Brazilian stocks still keeps him in the Brazilian stock market.
Cornelsen doesn’t sugar-coat the current condition of Brazilian stocks. The Brazilian stock market has been losing value the last three years. A recent surge in market prices came when the impeachment of President Dilma Rousseff was announced by Brazil’s speaker of the house. Igor says there is no better time to invest in Brazil. Stock prices will rise in 2016 and Brazil will get its political and economic issues resolved next year as well, according to Cornelsen.
Most investors don’t have a solid understanding of Brazilian stocks, so Cornelsen has outlined the best Brazilian stocks to buy now. His first picks are bank stocks. Banco Bradesco, Banco Itau Holding Financeira S.A. and Unibanco are Igor’s choices. If chemical stocks are of interest, Cornelsen invest in Braskem S.A. or energy stocks like Petroleo Brasileiro S.A. also known as Petrobras. Petrobras does everything in the energy industry in Brazil. Another energy company worth investing in is Petrobras Energia Participaciones S.A.. That energy company focuses on oil and gas as well as chemicals. Ultrapar PtpADR, distributes liquefied petroleum gas and is another good Brazilian stock.
Cornelsen also likes food stock like Companhia Brasileira de Distribuicao. CBD is the national supermarket chain of Brazil, and Companhia de Bebidas das Americas. AMBEV is the largest distributor of beer, soft drinks and beer, plus it distributes PepsiCo. International products as well.
Cornelsen believes investors must invest in mineral and metal stocks. He likes Companhia Vale do Rio Doce and steel producer Companhia SiderÃºrgica Nacional. CSN also produces other minerals like zinc, limestone, dolomite, tin and flat rolled steel. Paper stocks like Aracruz Celulose S.A., and Votorantim Celulose e Papel S.A are a good investments right now.
Brazilian telecom stocks are also worth the investment. Wireless cellular company, TIM Participacoes S.A. and fixed line company Tele Norte Leste Participacoes S.A. are good stocks that will go up in 2016, according to Cornelsen. Igor also recommends Brasil Telecom S.A. because the company is into fiber optics, wireless and the Internet. The other telecom company that provides Internet service on agel.co is Vivo ParticipaÃ§Ãµes S.A..
Mr. Cornelsen recommends other categories as well, but at this point in time energy, telecom, food and bank stocks make the most sense. Most seasoned Brazilian investors believe that there is a lot of money to be made in Brazilian stocks in 2016 and now is the time to get a firm foothold in the market.
