America Móvil

Mexico based America Móvil is the leading wireless services provider in Latin America and the third largest in the world in terms of subscribers. America Móvil operates in South America, Central America, the US and the Caribbean with more than 211 million mobile customers. It also has millions of landline and television customers.

Why this company might benefit from a post-Embargo Cuba: The company clearly understands the Spanish speaking market. As the Communist government in Cuba opens to more fair and free trade, America Móvil should be a first mover upgrading the abysmal wireless, wireline and television network in Cuba.

NYSE: AMX

Atlantic Tele network

Atlantic Tele-Network provides wireless and wireline telecommunications services in the Caribbean and North America. The company has operations in the United States, Guyana, Bermuda, and United States Virgin Islands through its ownership in a number of principal operating subsidiaries and affiliates.

This company competes with Verizon.

Why this company might benefit from a post-Embargo Cuba: Currently there is only one cellular phone network in Cuba and that's ETECSA which is partially owned by Telecom Italia. Cellular service is poor and very expensive. Cuba's phone landlines have not been updated since the 1950s and Cuba has one of the lowest rates of phones per person in the world. The wired and wireless phone systems will be one of the first infrastructure systems to be developed in a post-Castro Cuba. This company's operations in the Caribbean gives it an understanding of the culture, climate, topography and hazards of the region.

NASDAQ:ATNI 

Consolidated Water

Consolidated Water develops and operates seawater desalination plants and water distribution systems in the Cayman Islands, Belize, the British Virgin Islands and The Bahamas.

The Company competes with GE Water, Pridesa, Inima, Biwater, Veolia and IDE.

Why this company might benefit from a post-Embargo Cuba: Cuba's water supply and distribution system is severely outdated and millions of gallons of water will be required as new housing and hotels are built to accommodate a large increase in population and travelers.

NASDAQ:CWCO 

Vulcan Materials

Vulcan Materials is a US based company that merged with Florida Rock Industries and is a producer of construction aggregates, primarily crushed stone, sand and gravel, asphalt, concrete and cement in Florida.

Why this company might benefit from a post-Embargo Cuba:

Cuba will need tons and tons of cement, sand, gravel, asphalt etc for reconstruction and this Florida company is the largest and closest producer of these materials.
