The Vetr crowd upgraded its rating for Vale SA (ADR) (NYSE: VALE) on Friday from 4 stars (Buy), issued four days ago, to 5 stars (Strong Buy). Crowd sentiment at the time of the upgrade was largely positive, with 90 percent of Vetr user ratings bullish.

Vetr's upgrade follows turmoil in the metal manufacturer's home country after a scandal involving Brazilian President Michel Temer allegedly accepting bribes generated calls for impeachment among many in the government. The scandal sent shares down by about a dollar upon Thursday's market open. However, Vale's stock rebounded quickly over Friday's session, returning to around its Wednesday close level of $8.50.
