Foreign Stocks

Foreign stocks are stocks that are issued by companies that are installed abroad and not in the country of origin.

Although in the US stock markets count yet with the largest market capitalization of all the stock markets in the world, the foreign stock market are growing in market share.

Foreign stock provide you the opportunity to earn greater returns and of diversifying its portfolios. You may buy foreign stocks directly from the foreign markets or buy the American Depository receipt (ADRs) of these foreign companies. An American Depository Receipt is negotiable receipt in stocks kept under custody abroad. These receipts are negotiated instead of foreign stocks.

Many large foreign companies negotiate under the American Depository receipts (ADRs) in the US markets (New York Stock Exchange and the over-the-counter market).
