1) Looking at five of the largest companies in the S&P index (Apple, Alphabet, Microsoft, Berkshire Hathaway, and Exon Mobil) in certain cases, these companies’ non-US revenues significantly eclipse the revenues from their US operations. 2) As of June 30, 2017 annualized total returns for Emerging markets , Europe and Japan have outperformed domestic stocks. Australia is leading the way with the highest divi-dend yield within the developed world.3) Many investors do not realize that there are opportunities all over the world. Many U.S. companies generate revenue overseas , and many foreign companies generate their revenue from the U.S. It is important to have a diversified portfolio; some markets underperform and others are out- performing.
