For shy newcomers, could you describe the things you look for when investing in a company that's situated outside the US?Great question. We get this a lot.To me there are a few factors that I include on a macro level. Understand, though, that I don't require them, just that the fewer in evidence the cheaper the stock has to be.I look for a company that operates in a market that offers some semblance of protection for outside shareholders. The biggeswt clue is whether the home stock market has a central registry for shareholders. I look for countries that are actually emerging -- there's no need to invest in countries where capital tends to disappear down a rathole. Those are the biggest things. As company-specific investors, though, I'll give back some top-level considerations if the company itself offers better protection intrinsically.Bill Mann
