Part of my job as an investment advisor is to review new and prospective client portfolios. I like doing this, since it tells me how investors feel about the markets. One trend Iā??ve noticed during the past several months is the lack of international stock exposure in most investorsā?? portfolios.

This situation isnā??t too surprising, considering the relative underperformance of international stocks vs. U.S. stocks.

Compare this fund with the Vanguard Total Market VIPERs (VTI), an ETF that reflects the entire U.S. equity market. Here we see a big spike in the value of VTI since that mid-October slide. The fund now is well above its 50- and 200-day moving averages and trading right at its all-time high.
