Is Forecasting Always A Folly?
6 years ago

Instead of investing on the basis of what might be, why not investing on the basis of what is? As an example, buy for $.75 an asset worth $1.00 today, rather than buying for $0.50 an asset that could be worth $1.00 in five years?

Investing in Foreign Stocks
Nick De Peyster, CFA
Undervalued Stocks

Thousands of stocks trade in the US. Tens of thousands of stocks trade outside of the US.  If one has more stocks from which to choose, the chances of finding a good stock may increase.

Some of these foreign stocks trade in the US in the form of ADRs.  The overwhelming majority of them do not.  Thus, if one wants to invest in these companies, one must buy shares through foreign stock exchanges.

Investing in Foreign Stocks explains how to navigate some of the tax and legal implications of owning foreign stocks.

This book can save hundreds of hours of time on tax and legal research.  It may help someone avoid thousands of dollars of unexpected tax bills, failure-to-file penalties or other nasty surprises.

The book covers 25 countries. It guides the reader through what types of accounts and legal structures one should or should not use to invest in foreign stocks.  The U.S. tax considerations and reporting requirements.
