Can We Expect Anything Different From Petrobras This Quarter?

Petrobras (NYSE: PBR  ) certainly won't be on any top stock lists anytime soon. Between its incredibly high levels of debt, its overly ambitious production goals, and the ongoing delays on its offshore field development, the company hasn't exactly been instilling investor confidence. Based on what has happened in the past quarter, it looks as though the company's earnings report will be more of the same when it reports later this week.
