Africa The World’s Best Long-Term Investment

Africa: The World’s Best Long-Term Investment

It’s probably one of the last places most North Americans would think about investing, but the single best investment you make for the next decade could be to buy Africa. There are important reasons why African stocks are set to richly reward buy-and-hold-style investors. But the main reason is simply this: Africa is where the growth is. The continent’s economy has been growing at about 6% over the last decade. And it is expected to match that pace over the next several years.

One Way to Get Immediate Residency in Panama

The Panamanian side of the Darién is dominated by deep valleys, rivers and a 6,000-foot-high mountain peak. You won’t find much else here. Starbucks hasn’t made it, and there’s no Home Depot. This is frontier country. But you will find an open door to immediate residency in Panama, along with a chance for profitable investing.

Spain’s Secret Coast—From $64,000

Spain’s Secret Coast—From $64,000

Not needed: coat, scarf or sweater. But some sun-block would be welcome. Early December and the afternoon temperature is nudging 70 F. Sunbathers are on Isla Plana’s beach, and children are building sand-castles. I can even see swimmers.

Online Profits – Make Money From The EBay Of Latin America

Online Profits – Make Money from the eBay of Latin America

Squashed into the back of a Buenos Aires taxi between the two women, I hadn’t been paying much attention. But once they mentioned MercadoLibre, it sounded like a conversation that I overheard several times during my three-week investment-scouting trip to Argentina and Uruguay.

Find High Yields in This Crisis

Find High Yields in This Crisis

Contrarian investors “run into burning buildings.” This doesn’t mean they’re daredevils. It just means they understand a basic principle of the market: That the best time to buy is when the crowd is running in the opposite direction. This stampede effect causes prices of perfectly good assets to hit the floor.

Europe In Flames: Where To Find High Yields In This Crisis

Europe in Flames: Where to Find High Yields in This Crisis

Bull markets are all born in extreme pessimism. That means the time to invest is when the flames are licking higher, not after the fire trucks have arrived. And Europe is up in smoke right now…I’m not calling for the bottom in Europe stocks or for an immediate end to the debt crisis there. Plenty more can go wrong. But contrarian investors “run into burning buildings.”

A Growth Market that’s on Fire Right Now

A Growth Market that’s on Fire Right Now

The world’s consumer power base is shifting. The “rest” are playing catch-up to the “West” right before our eyes. Most investors don’t see this. They are blinded by the doom and gloom surrounding the financial crisis, the debt ceiling, and the gridlock in Washington.

A Great Addition to Your Investment Portfolio

A Great Addition to Your Investment Portfolio

This kind of “mega trend” may not be winning a lot of attention in the mainstream media. But it is a critical insight for global investors. The “Age of Man” is literally changing the face of the earth. As such, it will have profound implications on every investment decision you make.

Baja Beaches: 25% Off on the Shores of the Sea of Cortez

Baja Beaches: 25% Off on the Shores of the Sea of Cortez

If you want to live with world-class natural beauty without the world-class price tag, come to Mexico’s Baja California Sur. And be sure to bring a camera. This is a desert land of sharp, clear lines. The mountain peaks in the distance gleam a delicate mauve. I drive up a hill and suddenly there is the sea; a vast expanse of blue dotted with rocky, deserted islands.

First Eagle Overseas Fund: How it Works

First Eagle Overseas Fund: How it Works

First Eagle Overseas Fund seeks long-term growth of capital by investing primarily in equities issued by non-U.S. corporations. The fund’s management’s research-driven approach seeks to minimize risk by focusing on undervalued securities.

Age of Man: The Only Global Trend that Matters

Age of Man: The Only Global Trend that Matters

For the first time, the planet’s population has crossed the seven billion mark. The world’s population has increased more than tenfold in the past three centuries, and it is expected to reach 10 billion in this century. To put this in perspective, human biomass is already 100 times larger than that of any other animal that has ever lived on the planet.

Commodities…Buy Resource-Rich Russia at a Discount

The day Warren Buffett became the world’s richest man for the first time, he went out and bought himself a hail-damaged Ford. Although the damage to the bodywork was mostly invisible, the dealer was offering a heavily discounted price. Buffett knew a deal when he saw one, and he snapped it up.

A-Diversi-ed-Income-Play-In

A Diversified Income Play in This Resource-Rich Land

One of my favorite overseas markets to invest in for the long term is Chile. It’s a high-growth emerging market…and it’s a country that treats capital well. People often see emerging markets as Wild West-like frontiers where corruption is rife and the rule of law doesn’t exist. This can be true in some cases. But it’s not so in Chile.

Business Index 2011…What Our Experts Say…

Business Index 2011…What Our Experts Say…

To evaluate our seven countries for our Business Index 2011 we consulted seasoned entrepreneurs who’ve made the move and learned the ropes, as well as worked through in-country attorneys. We asked them about visa requirements, financing, and how easy it was to set up a bank account. They told us about local taxes, business expenses, infrastructure and the local culture for doing business, Here is what they had to say…

How to Profit From This Spanish Company

How to Profit From This Spanish Company

Today I’m going to tell you that you should buy a Spanish phone company. Your friends may laugh at you. Let them. It’s easy to repeat Warren Buffett’s advice at dinner parties: “Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful.” It’s harder to follow when it comes to your own portfolio. But that is exactly what I recommend you do with this Spanish company.

Not Sexy but Profitable: Big Yields with Commercial Property

It’s a business in which the big players make millions. I’m talking about the guys on the billionaire lists. But you don’t have to be made of money to do what they do. For as little as $20,000, you can ride major global trends and pocket serious profits. I’m talking about investing in commercial real estate.

Investment: Spanish Phone Company Hits the “Sweet Spot”

It’s easy to repeat Warren Buffett’s advice at dinner parties: “Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful.” It’s harder to follow when it comes to your own portfolio.

Caribbean Dreams in Mexico

Caribbean Dreams in Mexico

Enduring the winter months in Northeast USA can be rough. The snow, sleet and cold always compels me to go someplace warm. I often dreamed of having my own tropical paradise to visit whenever I wanted…although the reality of it seemed so out of reach.

A Property Empire in Paris for $45,000

A Property Empire in Paris for $45,000

I was lucky, not smart, when I bought my first Paris apartment, but it was still the smartest thing I ever did. I simply didn’t want to move from my 17th-century pied-à-terre in Le Marais district when the owners wanted to sell.

Three Picks that Give You Passive Paychecks

Dividend champions are particularly attractive if you’re nearing retirement or are already retired. That’s because on top of capital growth (what happens when the stock price rises) they allow you to create a passive income stream in your account.

Buy Brazil and Buy Now

The short-term rental market in Fortaleza, Brazil is strong right now. For example, in one recently completed building in the Iracema Beach area (where I’ve visited several times), condos rent for $100 per night.

10 Rules to Remember for Overseas Investment Success

10 Rules to Remember for Overseas Investment Success

I’ve greatly enjoyed writing International Living Investor and researching ways to tap into the fastest growing markets in the world. And I’ve hoped you’ve enjoyed reading.

But unfortunately the level of interest in a niche letter like International Living Investor has been too low to make it viable. And so with regret, we will not continue to publish it.

As a small parting gift I’d like to give you a report called 10 Rules to Remember for Overseas Investment Success. It’s yours to keep with my compliments.

This Global Titan Is Officially “On Sale”

Some things in life are simple. For instance, I do almost all my clothes shopping when stores are running their winter or summer sales. You get exactly the same stuff…only cheaper. If you’re a dedicated fashion follower, this won’t work.

There’s special art to drinking beer in Brazil. One of my favorite haunts is Bar Filial in the Vila Madalena neighborhood of São Paulo.

One story the mainstream has missed is the recent rise in crude oil prices. As I type this, crude-oil futures contracts in New York are selling for $99 a barrel.

How to Invest in Brazil's Biggest Trend

How to Invest in Brazil’s Biggest Trend

São Paulo – what a monster of a city! This was my first impression when I touched down in Guarulhos International Airport in April. This place makes the likes of L.A., Chicago and Toronto look small.

Dividends Profits in the Power Sector

Dividends: Profits in the Power Sector

Dividends “pay you” to own a stock…they can give you a regular income and they can help you pick profitable, mature companies that generate lots of cash. My favorite way to “get paid” dividends is in the Brazilian power-generating sector.

Following the Ancient Oil Map - How to Cash In on the Final Frontier of Offshore Oil

Following the Ancient Oil Map – How to Cash In on the Final Frontier of Offshore Oil

In this report you’ll learn about a new, game-changing trend that could completely alter world oil production forever…and make early investors in one “best of breed” company 895% gains.

I am talking about offshore oil exploration. Finding oil 30,000 feet below sea level. Under water, rock and miles of salt formations. No one says getting this oil is going to be easy…or cheap.

But thanks to new technology, and the help of talented geological experts, more and more offshore oil is being found every year. This is especially true over the past six years, as the major oil companies have dove deeper and deeper in hope of striking “black gold.”

In the future, the majority of new oil discoveries will be made in these waters. And the companies who can economically extract the hidden oil will create fortunes for far-sighted investors.

The Brazil Profit Playbook

The Brazil Profit Playbook

Brazil is one of the most promising emerging markets, thanks to a combination of huge natural resources reserves and a fast-growing consumer economy.

But what makes Brazil different to the other big resource rich emerging market, Russia? And what makes its consumer economy different to that of, say, China? What about claims that its new president is not business friendly enough? And what about the fear of rising inflation?

More important, how can U.S.-based investors gain exposure to the Brazilian growth story? What are the biggest and most bankable trends to invest? And what are the companies that best stand to profit from these trends?
