Three Scenarios For Brazil After Elections (Três cenários para o Brasil após as eleições)

Veja o que diz na FORBES:

Dilma “Bleh”
“If Dilma wins, foreign investment and the stock market will decline, even though foreign investment will still be high by comparison to other years. There will be very little movement on interest rates because they are close aligned with inflation and growth. The dollar will strengthen to R$2.40 and the equity markets will likely end the year around 5% higher than last year. But in the mid-term (until elections), the Bovespa should trend higher. There is a good chance that there will be a change at the Finance Ministry (now run by Guido Mantega), and that could lead to positive sentiment among foreign investors.”
"Se Dilma ganhar, o investimento estrangeiro e o mercado de ações vai diminuir, mesmo se o investimento estrangeiro continuar elevado em comparação aos outros anos. Haverá muito pouco movimento nas taxas de juros, porque eles estão alinhadas com a inflação e o crescimento. O dólar vai fortalecer a R $ 2,40 e os mercados de ações provavelmente terminarão o ano em torno de 5% maior do que no ano passado. Mas, no médio prazo (até as eleições), a Bovespa tende a subir. Há uma boa chance de que haverá uma mudança no Ministério da Fazenda (agora dirigido por Guido Mantega), e que pode levar ao sentimento positivo entre os investidores estrangeiros ".

Aécio “Boom”
Aécio Neves of the PSDB party, nicknamed the Tucans, or Tucanos in Portuguese, wins and puts his social democratic party back in business. PSDB ran Brazil for 8 years under ex-Finance Minister Fernando Henrique Cardoso and then lost to Workers’ Party front man Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva. Brazil has been run by the Workers’ Party for 12 years. If Aécio brings back the Tucanos to the Presidential Palace, “foreign investment, particularly speculative capital, should increase while foreign direct investment should remain unchanged. Interest rates will likely go up because a new Finance Minister will be more rigorous in attacking inflation. The dollar will weaken closer to R$2.00 by year’s end, but will strengthen again in 2015 with the increase in U.S. interest rates. Given those two scenarios, the stock market will have a strong rally.”
Aécio Neves do partido PSDB, apelidado de Tucanos, vence e coloca seu partido social-democrata de volta no negócio. O PSDB geriu o Brasil por oito anos pelo ex-ministro das Finanças, Fernando Henrique Cardoso e, em seguida, perdeu para homem de frente do Partido dos Trabalhadores, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva. O Brasil tem sido gerido pelo Partido dos Trabalhadores há 12 anos. Se o Aécio trouxer de volta os Tucanos para o Palácio Presidencial,  "o investimento estrangeiro, especialmente o capital especulativo, deve aumentar, enquanto que o investimento estrangeiro direto deve permanecer inalterado. As taxas de juros provavelmente vão subir porque um novo ministro das Finanças será mais rigoroso em atacar a inflação. O dólar vai enfraquecer mais perto de R $ 2,00 no final do ano, mas vai fortalecer novamente em 2015 com o aumento das taxas de juros nos Estados Unidos. Diante desses dois cenários, o mercado de ações terá um forte restabelecimento. "

Marina “A Mystery”
If the election goes to Marina Silva, a former heavy weight within the Workers’ Party, the scenario will be “identical to that of Neves. Marina can alter the scenario somewhat, particularly on agribusiness issues, which accounts for 25% of Brazil’s GDP.”
Se a eleição for para Marina Silva, ex-peso pesado dentro do Partido dos Trabalhadores, o cenário será "idêntica ao de Neves. Marina pode alterar o cenário um pouco, especialmente nas questões do agronegócio, que responde por 25% do PIB do Brasil.
