Overseas stock opportunities 2012 – Pt 2

Nathan Bell analyses the five remaining stocks that didn’t make it into the recent overseas stocks special report.

In Overseas stock opportunities – Pt 1, we analysed five stocks that would help establish the foundation for a robust international portfolio; Apple and McDonald’s own two of the world’s most valuable brands; Goldman Sachs is the world’s pre-eminent investment bank; Henkel develops chemical-based products for industry and consumers and owns the Scwarzkopf and Purex brands, amongst others; and giant pharmaceuticals company GlaxoSmithKline pays an attractive dividend with increasing exposure to emerging markets.

Conservative investors, and those looking for income, are best advised to stick to the first five stocks in Ripe for the picking – Eight overseas stocks to buy now, supplemented with the stocks mentioned above.
