Localiza Sees Biggest Stock Rally Since May After Olympic Announcement

Since the announcement that Brazil will host the 2016 Olympic Games, Brazil-based Localiza Rent a Car SA saw its biggest two-day gain in five months, according to Bloomberg.com.

Per the news source, the company rose 4.9 percent to 19.45 reias on Oct. 2, extending its 6 percent gain. This has been the biggest two-day gain for the rental agency since May 5, when it saw an 11 percent gain.
