A few months ago, I had put together a list of the top international stocks that did prove to be very popular. I believe very strongly in adding international stocks to any dividend portfolio. That does not however require opening accounts in foreign countries and trying to trade in all kinds of exotic currencies. In fact, most of the largest companies around the world, no matter where they are based, do hhave their stocks trading on US markets. Some are only available through pink sheets which is a whole other story. In most cases though, companies such as Credit Suisse (CS), France Telecom (FTE), GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and Vodafone (VOD) which we reviewed recently are very easy to trade in the US.
