g'day gilla

i am 95% invested in US Stocks. information flows are better, investor relations departments actually exist,
they send information to you, they have web broadcasts of their quarterly meetings (Even Q&A with Analysts).

THE cons are Currency differences, time differences, and you have to be actively involved in monitoring your shares as the figures you read in the Financial Review are at least one day old.

The pros are that if you pick the right stock, you could have another Microsoft and Cisco on your hands as Australian companies are not recognised internationally apart from News Corp.

Hope it helps Lance
