Seeking Alpha: FEMSA Seeing A Slower Rebound

One of the key stories for those who invest in Mexico, and major Mexican companies like FEMSA (NYSE:FMX), Cemex (NYSE:CX), Walmex (OTCQX:WMMVY), and Grupo Bimbo, is the pace of economic recovery in Mexico. While some measurements of the economy have been getting more positive, the overall pace of recovery seems to be a little slower than hoped as higher taxes have pressured disposable income and other pro-growth efforts have yet to really kick in and contribute.

That's not a great backdrop for FEMSA and this large consumer-focused company had a so-so second quarter. Management's comments seemed to point toward a more gradual recovery than a sharp upward inflection, but underlying results aren't exactly terrible. I can't call FEMSA an especially cheap stock today, but management has a long-term play to make this company an even larger consumer-focused business and there is still above-average long-term growth potential.
