I have a Fidelity Investment Account and I was wondering on how I can add European Stocks?
- Anonymous1 decade agoFavorite Answer
Fidelity has several funds that invest in European stocks.
As a previous responder mentioned FECAX is 100% European and has a good record.
Also FIEUX is another very similar to FECAX.
FIGRX is one possibility although it is not completely European, only about 50%. The other is invested worldwide..
There are several ETF indexed to the European markets.
ADRU is one. DEB, IEV, VGX are other European based index funds. There are also a couple of screw ball European index funds available, but not worth mentioning.
EFA is a developed international markets fund, not limited to Europe.
Many European companies are directly traded in the U S markets. Some on the major exchanges. Others on the pink sheets.

Maybe the easiest way to invest foreign stocks is buying ADRs. Never the less, American tax system and trade comissions will decrease your monetary gain. Financial gain taxes in lots of European countries (except Scandinavs and Denmark) are fewer than US. In addition €/$ movements gives another financial gain possibility.
Thats why, you can choose directly invest European markets. But how? Some multinational financial brokerage firms like ABN Ambro, HSBC, Goldman Sachs etc. make easy to invest in foreign markets. (not only stocks, also, bonds and notes)

Most people do this by buying ADR's (American depository receipts) of the foreign company you are interested in. Most foreign firms have ticker symbols just like US companies do. You just enter the ticker symbol, and buy the stock (for example, NOK is Nokia Corp. - Finland).
