International Watch List Performance Review
Below is the performance of the top ten companies on our International Dividend Achiever Watch List from August 13, 2010.
It is interesting to note that only two stocks, Consolidated Water and CRH, continued their declining trend. It remains to be seen whether or not we've witnessed the bottom for both stocks. However, the gains made from 7 of the 10 stocks has exceeded the average return for the group. If viewed from our short-sighted perspective of annualized return, the worst that could have been done would be 47.45%.
|ALTE||Alterra Capital Holdings Ltd||$19.93||$17.65||12.92%|
|DEG||Etablissements Delhaize Freres||$71.92||$66.30||8.48%|
