Investing in Argentina ADRs / Argentina Stocks List

There is a good selection of NYSE and NASDAQ listed Argentina ADRs for American investors to choose from. However, the 2012 renationalization of 51% of YPF SA (NYSE: YPF) by President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner gave foreign investors second thoughts about investing in a country with a long history of political and economic instability and anti-capitalistic left and right wing populism.

In 2019, Kirchner returned to the presidency despite being the subject of a number of corruption scandals during her previous tenure as President. Since Argentina always seems to be making political U-turns, foreign investors might want to be cautious about investing in any Argentine stocks involved in the energy, natural resources and utilities sectors as they all are or could be subject to price controls, export restrictions and/or whatever the latest whims of any current or future (populist) regimes are.

One “Argentine” ADR worth noting would be Latin American eCommerce giant MercadoLibre Inc (NASDAQ: MELI). However, it now appears to be headquartered in Montevideo, Uruguay. Agricultural giant Cresud Sociedad Anónima, Comercial, Inmobiliaria, Financiera y Agropecuaria (NASDAQ: CRESY) is also worth taking a look at as the company has farming operations in Brazil, Paraguay, and Bolivia. Cresud’s subsidiary IRSA Inversiones y Representaciones SA (NYSE:IRS) is one of the leading real estate companies in Argentina that is focused on the country. It also has selective investments outside Argentina.

Investors interested in investing in Argentina ADRs should also check out our Argentina ETF list along with our Latin America ETF list (region wide), South America ETF list and Latin America closed-end fund list (region wide) as some region wide ETFs and closed-end funds may have exposure to Argentina stocks.

Note: Stocks delisted from the OTC (whether due to mergers, acquisitions or for other reasons) have been left in the table (as their websites still provide a good feel for the company and the local market) and may still trade on local, regional or European (e.g. London) stock exchanges. They may also be holdings of country or region specific ETFs, closed-end funds or Indices.
