With the first half of 2014 behind us, it’s worth taking a looking at the top-performing global stock markets of 2014.
Over the past few years, U.S. investors have enjoyed the “exorbitant privilege” of investing in a stock market that ranked #1 in 2011 and #5 in 2013 among all its global rivals.
And you can’t blame most investors for thinking:
“Why invest in far-off global stock markets when I can do better sticking close to home?”
However, 2014 is turning out differently.
Despite the U.S. market hitting record highs, it ranks a mere #26 among the 46 global stock markets I follow on a daily basis at my firm Global Guru Capital.
Note that these are all stock markets you can actually invest in through exchange-traded funds (ETFs).
Why is this important?
