EMERGING MARKETS-Brazil stocks up as oil lifts Petrobras; political woes linger

    SAO PAULO, June 30 (Reuters) - Brazilian stocks rose on
Friday as shares of state-controlled oil company Petróleo
Brasileiro SA followed crude prices higher, though
caution due to the country's political crisis lingered.
    Crude futures rose for the seventh straight session, in
their longest bull run since April. Shares of Petrobras rose 1.8
percent, lifting the Bovespa stock index 1 percent.
    Shares of sewage and water utility Cia de Saneamento Básico
do Estado de São Paulo SA advanced 1.7 percent after
regulators allowed a higher-than-expected increase in tariffs
charged by peer Copasa, fueling optimism over the sector. Shares
of Cia de Saneamento de Minas Gerais, as Copasa is
formally known, jumped 4.7 percent. 
    Still, traders remained cautious and fearful of further
delays in the implementation of President Michel Temer's agenda
of structural reform amid mounting corruption scandals.
    The Brazilian real was nearly flat, weighed down by
political concerns that drove its biggest quarterly loss in
nearly two years.
    Most other Latin American currencies seesawed as investors
pursued month-end adjustments to their portfolios. The Mexican
peso slipped 0.2 percent, but still headed for its
second quarterly gain in a row.
