Where to Find Value Ideas for International Stocks

April 13, 2011 | About:

We have recently received many inquiries about where to find value ideas for international stocks. With this article we would like introduce the features that we have to help users to find value ideas for international stocks.

Please note, the international stocks we cover are only for the foreign companies that are traded in the United States.

International Stocks in Gurus Portfolios

We have just added an “International” tab in Gurus’ portfolios, as described in the article about George Soros’ Chinese stocks. As an example, you can find all international stocks that are owned by Soros’ Fund by going to George Soros’ portfolio page, and click on the “International” tab. The screen shot is as below:


We can see that George Soros owns many stocks of the companies from different countries of the world: Brazil, China, Great Britain, Israel, etc. As usual, the full holding histories of these stocks are shown by clicking on the rows you are interested.

Gurus’ Trades with International Stocks

Under menu “Premium Screens” => “International,” we list all the international stocks traded by Gurus. The screen shot of the menu is listed below:


We can see that there are 133 trades with Canadian Stocks. Among South America companies, 55 trades are listed from Brazil, 11 for Chile and 7 for Argentina. Also 55 for China, 26 for Israel etc.

From this list our users can find the stocks in the region that they are interested.

Most Owned International Stocks among Gurus

With Gurus’ Aggregated Portfolio you can select arbitrary combinations of Gurus and check out their consensus holdings. Under this page you can also narrow down your holdings to different section of the market, such as geographic regions and market caps. By selecting the regions there you can find the most popular international companies that are in Gurus’ portfolios.

A screen shot is shown below for the Canadian companies of 11 Gurus.


This page also allows users to see how many Gurus own the stock, how many bought and sold. One can also find the valuation matrix such as PE, market cap and dividends yields. We can see that the most popular Canadian stocks among the selected Gurus are Yamana Gold (NYSE:AUY) and MI Developments (MIM). The popular European stocks are GlaxoSmitheLline (NYSE:GSK) and Vodafone Group (NASDAQ:VOD).

Gurus’ Geographic Trend

GuruFocus also offers a tool for the overview of the investment trend for different regions and countries. It is under “Premium Screens” => “Geographic Trend”. In this page users can see which regions Gurus are buying into, and which regions they are selling out.

This page displays the Gurus that are in subscribers’ Personalized List only. Clicking on each of the bar brings you to the details of the stocks.

International Stocks at 52-Week Lows

This page lists the international stocks that are at close to 52-week lows. It is under “Value Strategies” => “52 Week Low International.” A screen shot of the page is shown below:



We have introduced the pages where you can find the value investing ideas for international stocks from Gurus’ portfolios. With these features you can find out which areas Gurus are buying into or selling out, what stocks are most popular among them, or the stocks in any region/country you are interested.

As always, if you have any suggestions and comments, please feel free to let us know.

These are just some of the features we provide for our premium members. If you are not a premium member, you are invited for a 7-day Free Trial.

is this limited to ADRs or are you also including stocks bought on non US exchanges?

Very interesting addition, thanks. I also am curious about the question super raised.

For the future I think it would be a great idea to have a separate section dedicated to non-US based Gurus and to cover stocks that are traded on other markets, not just those that have ADR's. At the moment I have not been able to find any good website which deals with value investing in other countries. There are some websites...but they tend to deal with obscure, very small or net-net type stocks which don´t normally interest me. Perhaps this would be a problem since most US investors would not be able to buy these foreign stocks which don't have an ADR...however if it is a different section on Gurufocus I don't think this is a problem. It would be very interesting to know how many non-US based members Gurufocus has....by expanding to foreign markets of course this number would increase a lot.

Actually all but 52-week low international stocks among these features have been on GuruFocus for a long time. Just we did not promote enough.

The stocks are all ADR or ADS. At this point we do not cover international exchanges.

If you had a feature that would let me run a value screen on say Heng Seng listed stocks I would be a premium member in a heartbeat.

This forum is good for finding value investments in international markets, including Hang Seng.

I`m brazillian and I would be very interested in subscribing Gurufocus, if it had Bovespa stocks. I'm hungry for value investing ideas here, but sadly we don't have any such website here.

Always have been interested in overseas investing so thanks for the screen. I ave noticed that the bull-bbear cycle is not synchronised across the globe. Since a rising tide raises all boats and a falling tide lowers them knowing the realtionship of one market to another is very helpful. But what I needed was a way of easily investing in those markets.

Some are limited to ADRs as I am. So this screen will be useful. Others (those that can easily invest in a particular foreign market) will proabably need an additional and different screen.

Thanks for this one.
