International Investment Update for August

Spotting Trends expert Michael Keppler continually researches every major global stock market 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 these to each global major stock market history and from this develops his global major stock market value strategy. Here is his most recent review.
