Weak Dollar Investing - International Income Stocks



April 28, 2011 – Comments (1)

Here's one more tug at the weak dollar thread.  With a weak dollar, dividend-paying companies located outside the U.S. add the potential bonus -- and risk -- of currency gains to the earnings and dividend stream. 

The article wraps up with the summary of a screen run to look for dividend payers listed in the US, but headquartered outside the US.  One of the objectives was to get stocks from several industries and headquartered in a number of different countries.

As I write this entry, the dollar is down or flat against every currency on the default list of Yahoo's Currency Center.

What's your opinion?  Is the dollar going to reverse and strengthen or is there more weakness ahead?  Are you making any adjustments to your investments because of dollar weakness?

Fool on!

Eventually it will.  We will read something about the importance of what happens to Greece on the world economy and everyone will flock to the dollar and sell stocks. Remember almost a year ago the Euro was selling for 1.20 v the dollar?  It always swings.  And when things truly get ugly the one thing the world does run to is, yes you guessed it, the dollar.

Personally I don't mind it being weak. The Chinese don't want to stop pegging their currency off the dollar, then heck with them we will debase their currency on our own then.
