One of the best economies in the world right now is not China or Saudi Arabia or some other far-off place. It’s right next door, in Mexico.
My Global Resource Hunter subscribers took a round of gains on the iShares MSCI Mexico Capped Investable Market Index Fund (EWW) earlier this year. We grabbed it again recently and the position is showing an open gain.
There are fundamental reasons why, but a picture is worth a thousand words …

So, let me show you a chart …
Looking at the chart, we can see a couple of things. Clearly, the iShares Mexico Index, which tracks a basket of Mexico’s best stocks, is channeling upward.
Plus EWW pushed above overhead resistance last week. I think it should zig-zag its way to $99 — maybe higher.
Here are some of the fundamentals driving this move …
Government Reforms: A pro-business, reform-minded politician, President Enrique Pena Nieto, took charge in Mexico in December. He is opening Mexico’s telecom, television and energy markets — and creating opportunities for investors.
Higher Sovereign Rating: Thanks in part to Nieto’s reforms, Standard & Poor’s upgraded the outlook for Mexico’s sovereign credit rating to positive from stable. This signals a possible upgrade in the next 18 months, which is attracting foreign investment.
Good Neighbors are Good for Business: Thanks to the North American Free Trade Agreement, Mexico’s economy is leveraged to U.S. economic growth — and the U.S. economy is growing thanks to our energy boom and other factors.
Mexico became a place where U.S. companies outsourced their labor. Manufactured goods represent 71% of Mexico’s total exports, with 79% of its total exports going to the United States.
Demographics: More than 55% of Mexicans are 30 years old or younger. This is a generation that is growing wealthier than their parents, and they want to buy cars, eat, dress well and invest.
For a while, Mexico lost business to China. But now manufacturing is shifting back to Mexico due to rising labor costs in China and increased transportation costs.
EWW tracks a basket of leading Mexican companies including mining-and-materials giant Grupo Mexico (GMBXF), beverage firms including Coca-Cola Femsa (KOF) and Grupo Modelo (GPMCF) and retail companies including Wal-Mart de Mexico (WMMVY).
These are companies whose shareholders should benefit as Mexico rides a new capitalist boom and benefits from increasing consumer purchasing power.
Does Mexico have problems? Yes. The drug war is still going on, and there are parts of Mexico that I wouldn’t go to, and neither should you. But there is also tremendous opportunity, and an investor would be foolish to ignore it.
My Global Resource Hunter subscribers received my previous buy recommendation on EWW, and my recommendation to grab gains. I told them when they should buy the fund again, and I’ll let them know when it’s time to exit down the road.

The markets are trending higher. Pullbacks are buying opportunities. This is not a time to sit on your hands.
This is a time to get busy and make the most of the opportunities in front of you. And I think a very good opportunity lies south of the border.
All the best,
P.S. Know what else you can find south of the border? Some pretty explosive gold and silver mining plays.
But don’t take it (just) from me — one of the premier precious metals investing managers in the country, Rick Rule, agrees with me.
