International Investments March 2006 Major Markets Update

By Gary Scott

International stock markets and stock market trends

This morning I caught the sunrise on Mount Imbabura outside hotel suite window.

I hope you'll join us here at El Meson for our upcoming Import-Export course and share this view. This is the last course that Merri and I will have here until next fall.

We will focus on how to buy and export items of extraordinary value!

Value is also the best way to spot trends and our friend and value expert Michael Keppler continually researches every major global stock market and compares their values based on current book to price, cash flow to price, earnings to price, average dividend yield, return on equity and cash flow return. Here is his most recent review & outlook for the major markets:

After strong gains in January, global equities moved into lower gear in February. The Morgan Stanley Capital International (MSCI) World Total Return Index lost 0.15% in U.S. dollars and gained 1.7% in euros.

Fifteen markets advanced, two markets declined and one market (the United States) was flat in the last month.

The best performing markets (in local currencies) were Spain (+5.7 %), Sweden (+3.6 %) and Belgium (+3.1 %).

Canada (-2.3 %), Japan (-1.9 %) and the US (unchanged) had the lowest monthly returns.

There were no losing markets over the last fourteen months. Austria continues to lead the pack (+55.9 %), followed by Norway (+54.1 %) and Japan (+47.8 %), while Italy (+23.3 %), Hong Kong (+14.3 %) and the United States (+8 %) came in last.

Over the last fourteen months, the Top Value Model Portfolio gained 23.5 % in US dollars and 40.8 % in euros, outperforming its benchmark by between 9.3 and 19.7 percentage points depending on the currency.

There are no changes in Keppler's performance ratings this month.

The Top Value Model Portfolio contains the six most attractively valued national equity markets of Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Singapore at equal weights.

Keppler's ratings suggest that these markets offer the highest expectation of risk-adjusted returns.

You can get ideas on shares in these top value major global stock markets from Thomas Fischer.

Until next message, good global investing!
