December 01, 2011

Dec. 1 (Bloomberg) -- Barclays Capital raised its recommendation on Venezuelan debt to “overweight” from “marketweight” today citing high oil prices and a low correlation with the global economy, according to a research note.

Barclays also raised its 2012 inflation forecast for Venezuela to 36.5 percent from 26.2 percent on expectations of an “impressive fiscal expansion” ahead of next year’s presidential elections.
