If you are an investor in Petrobras (NYSE: PBR  ) , you probably have a pretty high pain tolerance. This year alone we have seen the company's shares drop almost 30%, and this past month's production numbers were not not encouraging, either. Fortunately, the recent struggles to grow production are not the headaches you should worry about with this company, but those who are invested in Patrobras will probably need to stomach at least a few more painful months before any major change in the company's prospects.

Rather than focusing on the month to month production numbers, there are a few things to watch for with Petrobras going forward.

In this special report we detail how this company is positioned to change the dynamics of the way we explore for hydrocarbons and how you can make big profits from this game changing stock.
