As I mentioned earlier this week, many analysts and observers think that international stocks will outperform U.S. stocks this year after the domestic market’s impressive move last year. Many other regions of the world such as Europe and Asia are thought to be a year or two behind us in the economic recovery plans and are still ramping up stimulus and monetary policies to accelerate growth.
Easing measures have worked very well to get US stock prices moving, and analysts expect to see the same result in international stocks. I have no clue which market will be the best, but I do think we are seeing a strengthening global recovery that should be good for both domestic and international stocks this year.
The trick to profiting in international markets is the same as it is here at home: Use Portfolio Grader to focus on the international stocks with the very best fundamentals that are attracting buying pressure from institutions.
