Why Banco Bradesco (BBD) Stock Is Up Today

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Banco Bradesco (BBD) was gaining 4.9% to $14.83 Monday on news that it is in talks with the Brazilian government about a potential loan for electricity industry clearinghouse CCEE.

The bank and the government are still decided the terms of the potential loan for CCEE. The plan is to offer a loan instead of a bond sale. CCEE is a privately held company that's in charge of buying and selling electricity in the spot market

According to Reuters, the Brazilian government is helping CCEE get around 8 billion reais ($3.6 billion) in loans, which it would then spread to power distributors. Electricity companies in the country are having trouble dealing with rising spot power costs while the government is reluctant to increase rates for consumers.
