Have you decided that you want to invest in a company located outside of the country where you're based? Hi. This is Roger Groh at Groh Asset Management. Well that means that you're about to buy in international stock. Which is really just a company based in a different country from where you are. Is there an advantage? Maybe. If that company is better managed, or growing faster or slower, than a like business in your own country, than it could be a substantial difference. Other items to think about? Well certainly the stability of the government in that country. And I don't mean whether it's a democracy and there's an election once every four years or six years. But whether or not the government is going to nationalize that business. Think of Venezuela as an example. Next thing to think about is currency. You might see earnings per share going up in the stock, but if the currency is moving down faster, than you could end up loosing money. So there's a lot to think about. My advice? Go with a pro. Find somebody who knows what they're doing in the international area before you make a move. Hope that helps. I'm Roger Groh with Groh Asset. Thank you very much for spending time with me.
