Mexican cement company. This was one of the leading emerging market stocks. Stumble very badly due to over expansion ahead of the global financial crisis. Has recovered somewhat. Until it is able to unload the acquisitions made, particularly in the US, this is likely to be dead money.

Hopes that they will start paying dividends in the fall as many other tech companies have done. Probably reasonably valued but the difficulty is that it is now so large that unless it comes up with an absolutely stunning success in the lines of new products, it won't be able to grow at the same rate.

If you are a believer in the improving diets of the emerging market middle class, this is one of the major players in that space. Seeds. One of the few stocks that is substantially higher than it was 5 years ago.

Cars. Have done a great job and their new models are excellent. Making lots of money but the largest part of their sales is in India where car sales were off due to high inflation and high interest rates. Good long-term buy.

Auto parts manufacturer, primarily seats and electric motors. Had a big selloff last year but has started to recover as North American auto sales have started to recover. Real difficulty will be as to what the car sales will be for this year. High gasoline prices may be a bit of a damper.
