According to Edmunds, the highestreturning long term asset class is stocks in emerging markets (14%). He also explains that these are the riskiest, but that having some in your portfolio (probably via mutual funds) is valuable, if you canhandle the risk, because emerging market stocks areregional in nature and not very correlated with U.S. stocksIf you like mutual funds, this may be good -- I don't really know. I buy common stock, and my personal opinion is that there are more than enough good companies available right here that I don't see a need to go off hunting internationally for some.Maybe this would also be different if you concentrate on stock movements rather than value (not necessarily bad, just not my style). IMO though, if you can buy just one well- or under-priced stock in a good solid company per year, you're probably going to do just fine.
