NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Vale (VALE) - Get VALE S.A. American Depositary Shares Each Representing one Report stock is rising by 6.31% to $4.38 in late-morning trading on Wednesday, as shares of Brazilian companies rally after Brazil's largest political party left President Dilma Rousseff's governing coalition, renewing hopes for an impeachment. 

Vale is a Rio de Janeiro-based metals and mining company.

The Brazilian Democratic Movement Party (PMDB) announced yesterday that it will depart from Rousseff's government.

This has fueled speculation that other parties might follow and consequently isolate Rousseff, who faces protests about the country's worst recession in decades and allegations that she is shielding her predecessor from a corruption investigation. 

"There's expectation that more parties will follow PMDB and leave the president," Jason Vieira, the chief economist at Infinity Asset Management, told Bloomberg. "Investors don't care who the leaders are. They're interested in seeing an improvement in economic policies."
