Some international diversification is usually a good idea

I think a big boom is coming in the U.S., which may keep a richly valued stock market out of trouble.

But you never know. Some international diversification is usually a good idea. And I think it's wise now, since U.S. stock valuations are high and interest rates are rising – a potentially dangerous combination.

If you are exclusively or almost entirely in U.S. stocks and you want to diversify a little, here are five ideas for stocks outside America.

As Charlie Munger says, 'All intelligent investing is value investing'

While value investing is often confused with value stocks (businesses that trade at a low multiple but have a low-growth or no-growth prospect), we think that the approach should by no means exclude growth business as long as their shares aim to be bought at reasonable prices. As a matter of fact, Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio), the legendary value investor, never seems interested in categorizing stocks between value and growth.
