Looks like everyone is kicking [Cemex] while it's down, perhaps for good reason. I look around Latin America and all I see are houses made of concrete blocks. Sometime down the road, construction will pick up elsewhere. Cemex seems to have a plan to meet its debt obligations. If they don't go bankrupt, the stock should be back over $10 in a few years. I'll take a shot with a minimal position.
