International stock markets and stock market trends

Another way to protect against currency turmoil is to own real estate. Here is the type of house you can own in Ecuador at a very low price.

Another way to protect against falling currencies is to invest in equities. Shares represent ownership in businesses that provide products and services. Prices for these products and services rise as a currency falls.

One way to select good shares in equity markets is to look for value.

Our friend, statistical expert, Michael Keppler, continually researches all major stock markets and compares their value based on current book-to-price, cash flow-to-price, earnings-to-price, average dividend yield, return on equity and cash flow return. He compares each major stock market’s history and from this develops his good value emerging stock markets strategy.

Here is Keppler’s May 2006 review of major market developments & outlook.

“Recent Developments & Outlook

“Last month global equities continued their above-average return path of the recent past. The Morgan Stanley Capital International (MSCI) World Total Return Index 0.9% and 3% in US dollars. But due to consistent dollar weakness it lost 1 % in euros last month.

“Fourteen markets advanced last month and four markets declined.

“The best performing major markets of the month (in local currencies) were Hong Kong (+5.5 %), Singapore (+4.1 %) and Norway (+2.6 %).

“The worst performing markets were Sweden (-1 %), France (-0.7 %), the Netherlands and Japan (both down 0.4 %).

“Year to date, all eighteen markets covered here are higher. Norway (+22.7 %), Hong Kong (+13.1 %) and Singapore (+12.5 %) were the top performers, while the US (+5.3 %), Italy (+6.2 %) and Japan (+6.3 %) performed worst.

“There is no change in our performance ratings this month.

“The Top Value Model Portfolio contains Belgium, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, the Netherlands and Singapore at equal weights.

“Our current 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 at Fischer@jyskebank.dk

Here is a vital health tip from Dr. John Douillard at www.lifespa.com

“As the seasons change, we need to change our diet to best suit our needs based on our body's requirements now, within this season. This allows us to balance our weight easily, without creating cravings that undermine our natural balance.

“Spring is the time to transition into a lower-fat, lower-calorie diet, as the body is trying to rid itself of the heavier stored fats and proteins of the winter.

The following is a sample menu taken from The 3-Season Diet. As always, lunch should be the largest meal of the day.

Breakfast:

• Grapefruit with honey

• Rye Toast with Apple Butter

• Fresh Carrot, Beet, and Apple Juice

Lunch:

• Carrot Soup

• Spinach Salad (Made with roasted pine nuts and currants or raisins, with raspberry vinaigrette

• Veg: Pesto Pasta (with steamed snow peas on the side)

• Nonveg: Baked turkey (with mashed potatoes and snow peas)

Supper:

• Corn chowder (made with celery, onions, and potatoes)

• Corn bread and honey”

Invest in yourself. Twice a year Merri and I spend one or two weeks really investing in our energy, vitality and health. We do a spring and autumn clean up, eat less and take in cleansing foods, do special exercises and totally relax. This is the maxim: do less and accomplish more working at its highest. Health is just like wealth. You cannot continue to draw energy out if you don’t take some in. These cleanups and times of R & R can clear your mind, extend your life, stimulate your creativity and lengthen your working life and lifespan. Join us for our summer R & R health clean up. DETAILS

Until next message, may good health be your strongest currency!
