Just last week, one of those Fools, All-Star Staka, offered a balance take on the Petrobras Argentina opportunity:

-You can buy them for half the tangible book value due to fears of nationalization.
-Cash flow is solid. Debt is low.

-Nationalization might happen if the Argentine goverment gets even more desperate. At some point they should understand the idiocy of all that but you never know, they are politicians.
