ABSTRACT
The article comments on the need for U.S. independent investors to ignore the stock indexes to beat the performance of global fund managers. Fund managers evaluate the companies they would invest instead of relying on country stock indexes. Investors should consider countries based on their growth potential, capital flows, prices and pace of market reforms. Investors should expect a more volatile return in investing in emerging market countries.
