What do the following major brands have in common?

  • Budweiser

  • Lysol

  • Ben and Jerry's ice cream

  • 7-Eleven

  • Gerber baby food

  • Brooks Brothers

  • Motel 6

  • American Idol

  • Wild Turkey bourbon

If you said that they are all owned by non-U.S. companies, go to the head of the class. The United States represents only 30% of world stock market capitalization. Put another way, by not investing outside the U.S. you are missing 70% of the world's investment opportunities.

How do you decide where else in the world you want to invest your money? It pays to look at GDP growth rates. Why? Because, long term, stock prices correlate to GDP. When an economy booms, its stock prices follow.

Japan is a good example.

A Look Back at Japan

From 1950 through 1980, Japan was considered an emerging market. Over this 30-year period, GDP in Japan increased by an average of 7.4% a year. And stock market returns were staggering. The Japanese market had a 70-fold increase in value!

During this same time, the S&P 500 had just a seven-fold increase in value.

So Where's the Growth Now?

The following chart from the IMF says it all. There is a huge difference between the emerging economies and the advanced economies:

GDP Growth Rates

This wasn't always true. Today's global economy is different than anything we've seen since World War II. For 50 years, because of its size, the economy of the United States was able to lift or sink the economic boats of every other country. Hence the old adage: "When the U.S. sneezes, the rest of the world catches a cold."

But consider that emerging market countries now represent about 30% of world GDP -- about the same as the United States. Meanwhile, the emerging markets have 87% of the world's population. 87%! That's one reason it's estimated that 70% of the growth in global output will come from emerging economies.

The IMF estimates that global growth this year will come in at around 4%. But let's take a look at a few select countries:

One reason the emerging market economies are growing so rapidly is their growing middle class. As per-capita income increases, so does consumer spending. That translates to earnings growth. And earnings growth translates into higher stock prices.

Where to Invest

The emerging markets are the growth story of our lifetime. You simply have to be on this train.

It's relatively easy to get exposure to the emerging markets. Maybe the simplest way is with an ETF (exchange-traded fund). A good choice is the Vanguard Emerging Markets ETF (VWO). It has a low expense ratio of 0.27% versus the category average of 0.70%.

In VWO, you'll find stocks like Gazprom, Petrobras, and China Life Insurance (a company that has been around since 2005, has $19 billion in assets, and has good volume).

Other Alternatives

Are you most comfortable investing in U.S. companies? Well, there's an indirect way to profit from the growth in the developing world: Invest in U.S. corporations with significant exposure to the emerging markets. Many U.S. companies derive a large percentage of their profits from the developing world. Many of these U.S. multinationals also pay a reasonable dividend.

Andy Gordon has a number of them in his Sound Profits portfolio. And he has been racking up big gains for subscribers.

[Ed. Note: This is just a small taste of what you'll get as a subscriber to the Sound Profits newsletter. Right now they are giving away a free special report to new subscribers. It details a metal, overlooked by mainstream investors, that is seeing larger gains than precious and "high-tech" metals like gold, silver, and lithium.

Hardly anybody knows its name… yet, it's in products you use everyday. Thanks to rising demand, it's ready for a boom. And those in the know will be ready to capitalize.

Wouldn't You Love to Be In On That Conversation?

Imagine stepping into a room filled with half a dozen of today's most successful business owners. Michael Masterson is sitting on a couch in the center of this high-profile group. (They are some of his closest friends and business associates.)

They seem to be doing nothing more than chatting. But make no mistake... some of the hottest business deals, investments, and money-making strategies are being discussed. Like these...

  • The latest, hidden profit opportunity that could generate over $28,000 in just a couple of weeks...

  • The real estate deal that could generate a 100% return (or more) within a few weeks, without ever owning a single piece of property...

  • The "Great Diamond Hoax," which has the potential to return 15% to 40% ROI with a single transaction.

That's just a tiny taste of the kind of things they're talking about.

And now, you can be right there with them...

"I've completed three deals to date."

"I got in on The China Wholesale Trader a couple of weeks ago. The promotion was exciting, but I wondered in the back of my mind if the program would actually deliver. It did! I've completed three deals to date... and they were as easy as you described. I sell imported products online. I'm also helping other entrepreneurs and retailers import products. Thanks a million."

There's No Reason Why You Shouldn't Be the Next Overnight Success Story...

Maybe you've been hearing all those "overnight" Internet success stories... and wishing you could be next. Well, it's finally time...

One online entrepreneur we know made $1.8 million last year selling... pajamas. A couple from California -- using the same business model -- made $25 million. (They sell flags, gardening tools, baby furniture, and more.)

How'd these folks do it? They were able to get their products for pennies on the dollar and sell them at a huge mark-up.

We want to show you how to get into the same type of easy-to-operate business. All you have to do is follow a simple plan that walks you -- step by step -- through this business that takes full advantage of our global economy and the Internet. To see if your financial success is right around the corner, continue here...

Today's Words That Work: Antipodean

Antipodean (an-tip-uh-DEE-un) -- from the Greek for "those with the feet opposite" -- describes a place that is geographically on the opposite side of the globe.

Example (as used by Amy Tan in Saving Fish From Drowning): "In the antipodean world of San Francisco, Mary Ellen Brookhyser Feingold Fong was awakened one morning by a telephone call from someone with the U.S. State Department, informing her that her daughter, Wendy, was missing."

    Sometimes people don't believe me when I tell them about how much you can make taking paid surveys from home...

    So I show them a video of myself getting paid over $500 for filling paid surveys.
