Latin American stocks are mixed, with market guages for the Mexico City and Santiago exhanges holding on to small gains while the Ibovespa index in Brazil is lower with a fall in crude oil and precious-metal prices.

Here's where the major regional market guages stand this afternoon:

- Ibovespa down 155.97 (-0.29%) at 53,649.41

- IPC (Mexico City) up 99.16 (+0.25%) at 39,256.67

- Santiago Index IPSA up 4.97 (+0.11%) at 4,331.51

- Merval Buenos Aires down 7.70 (-0.34%) at 2,280.14

In company news, U.S.-listed shares of Embraer SA ( ERJ ) are down about 0.9% with the Brazilian aircraft company announcing a deal with Boeing ( BA ) to collaborate on the KC-390 aircraft program.

Under this agreement, the companies will share some specific technical knowledge and evaluate markets where they could combine sales efforts for the medium-lift military transport. The KC-390 collaboration is part of a broader agreement that BA and EJR signed in April.

Also, Solazyme Inc. ( SZYM ) shares are off about 5% today with the specialty chemicals company breaking ground on a renewable-oil production facility adjacent to Bunge Ltd's ( BG ) Moema sugarcane mill in Brazil. BG shares are up about 1.2% this afternoon.
