Although there is no reason to select a foreign company just because we haven't yet, there are several very strong candidates out there, and only one of them made it onto anyone's list.

You can call me narrow-minded here, but I did not consider any of the foreign-based multinationals when I made my selections.

Until there is more uniformity in accounting standards I prefer to limit my investments to US based businesses. When there are US-based businesses like Coke that sell predominantly outside the US anyway, I feel that sufficient exposure to foreign markets is obtained, and that let's me read GAAP based finanacial statements which I understand and which provide the best disclosure of any in the world.
