Investing in Mexico ADRs / Mexico Stocks List
There are more than a dozen Mexico ADRs trading on the NYSE or the NASDAQ representing important sectors of the Mexican economy with Carlos Slim’s America Movil SAB de CV and cement giant Cemex SAB de CV (NYSE: CX) probably being the most well known Mexican stocks outside of Mexico. Investors should also pay attention to Coca-Cola FEMSA SAB de CV (NYSE: KOF), which operates domestically and in Guatemala, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, Venezuela, Brazil and the Philippines, plus there are a couple of Mexican ADRs that own or operate airports and other infrastructure. In addition, potentially interesting Mexican ADRs trading on the over-the-counter (OTC) market includes leading corn flour producer Grupo Industrial Maseca SA de CV (OTCMKTS: GINBF); Corona Extra maker Grupo Modelo SAB de CV (OTCMKTS: GPMCF); several important players in the Mexican telecommunications or media markets; and the Mexican subsidiaries of major US based MNCs such as Kimberly-Clark de Mexico SAB de CV (OTCMKTS: KCDMY) and Wal-mart de Mexico SAB de CV (OTCMKTS: WMMVY). Aside from Mexico ADRs, its worth mentioning the two Mexico closed-end funds, the Mexico Equity and Income Fund (NYSE: MXE) and the Mexico Fund Inc (NYSE: MXF), plus the Herzfeld Caribbean Basin Fund, Inc (NASDAQ: CUBA) on our Caribbean closed-end fund list has significant exposure to Mexico stocks.
