Raising A Millionaire: Article of the Week
Making Money in International Investments

According to the National Association of Investors, just one in three Americans feels "comfortable" investing in foreign stocks or bonds.

That spells trouble. If this thinking continues, hardworking Americans like us could be headed for some woeful underperformance, if not disaster.

In 2005, stock markets in countries as diverse as Egypt, Russia, Turkey, South Korea, and Austria all gained 50% or more -- dwarfing U.S. stocks. I am starting to sense a long-term trend, and no, we haven't missed the boat. In fact, I am more adamant than ever that we start moving our investments overseas.

This thinking is inline with Wharton professor, Jeremy Siegel, and more important, he said we should hold as much as 40% of our portfolios in foreign stocks.

I wish I'd listened. Last year, while the $58 billion Fidelity Magellan fund rode positions in General Electric (NYSE: GE), American International Group (NYSE: AIG), and Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) to 4.6% returns, international stock funds routinely delivered 20%-plus gains. Meanwhile, American institutions such as Wal-Mart (NYSE: WMT) and Home Depot (NYSE: HD) struggled to eke out single-digit gains, and mighty Dell (NYSE: DELL) didn't even manage that. And that's to say nothing of the whooping Toyota is putting on General Motors (NYSE: GM).

I assure you, I'm not some doomsayer prophesizing the collapse of the West and the rise of "Chindia." I have too much faith in America, but more than half the capitalization of all public companies already resides overseas. Just last year, investors poured $53 million into foreign large-company funds, up 32% from the year before.
