Utekai,over the last years, Tech stocks have done rather bad in Germany. OTOH, some high yield stocks like E.ON (7% yield this year) have more than doubled. Or take a look at MAN (cyclical stock, trucks and busses, printing machines, DAX member). It went from 12 to over 60 in just a few years.Even better than DAX, the M-DAX has performed (middle-cap stocks). Worst performers in the indices have all been tech.Another point to be kept in mind by foreign investors: the currency risk.As the USD keeps falling, €-zone stocks become growingly expensive for US investors,- as I still hold some US tech stocks (EMC, INTC), I have suffered in a double way from the weakness in tech and the weakness in the USD.If the USD keeps falling, it might be a good idea for US investors to invest in €-zone stocks, but who knows?Good luck,Abe
