Brazil's lower house is expected to vote on the presidential decree on the privatization of state power utility Eletrobras this week or next week at the latest, the chamber's speaker Arthur Lira said on Monday. In an event hosted by the bank Bradesco BBI, Lira also said the lower house should vote on privatization of the Post Office at the end of this month or early in the second half of the year after lawmakers return from recess.
* Fitch predicted to downgrade Colombia this year -GS * Chilean stocks surge on SQM gains * Eletrobras falls on bill to privatize firm (Adds comments, updates prices throughout) By Ambar Warrick and Shreyashi Sanyal May 20 (Reuters) - Colombia's peso and stocks tumbled on Thursday after the Andean country lost one of its three investment-grade ratings, while other Latin American currencies were mostly mixed amid growing concerns over tighter U.S. monetary policy. The peso shed 1%, touching a one-week low to the dollar after S&P Global Ratings lowered Colombia's rating to junk bond status. Analysts said the downgrade had come earlier than anticipated, while Wall Street banks JPMorgan, Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs predicted that Fitch would follow suit with a rating downgrade this year.
Brazil's lower house approved late on Wednesday a bill to privatize Brazilian state power utility Eletrobras, a long-awaited divestment. Under the terms of the bill, Eletrobras will sell new shares to investors, diluting the stake of the government, which will lose its controlling interest in the company. The government expects to raise roughly 25 billion reais ($4.71 billion) from the divestment.
