It is a well known fact that Australians and New Zealanders have a rich history of gentle ribbing, but while the great debate about who makes the better Pavlova remains unresolved, Skaffold has found some common ground where we all agree and that is adding New Zealand stocks dual listed on the ASX into Skaffold. We have added 39 requested stocks into Skaffold (Australia).

It’s not rocket science. If you invest in the US and the A$ falls 10 per cent against the greenback, you’ll receive an extra 10 per cent return when you eventually bring your money home. The same can also be said for those investing locally in stocks that derive a good chunk of their income from foreign earnings.
Established healthcare businesses, many of which have substantial operations outside Australia, like CSL Ltd, and consumer discretionary stocks benefit from a weaker Aussie dollar, due partly to segmented pricing which makes local retailers more competitive relative to overseas online stores.
As a rule of thumb, a 10 per cent drop in the A$ adds around 3 per cent to corporate earnings.
To determine the A$ impact on earnings, find out the percentage of profits generated from the company’s international operations and apply the change in currency to this proportion of profits.

With value plays on the Australian share market becoming decidedly harder to find, there’s never been a more compelling argument for dipping your toes into global equity markets offering greater potential for growth, plus portfolio exposure to a broader range of class-leading businesses.
Given the tailwind courtesy of A$ weakness and the strength of its economic recovery, the US offers greater opportunity for growth than most of its global counterparts.
Research conducted by Skaffold earlier this year suggests that active share market investors were more confident in the performance of offshore markets over the next 12 months than the ASX. Skaffold found that over half (50.4% of those surveyed) were interested in increasing their investments in international shares.
So exactly how do you invest in global stocks to capitalise on the growth and diversification they offer?

Comparing the value of the Australian share market as a whole with global indices can be a dangerous and futile exercise. After all, most investors are individual stock-pickers not index huggers. However, once you recognise exactly how top-heavy the ASX is compared to the US and other global markets, you’ll sit up and take notice when analysts have concerns over valuations.
