    Hi BAX! Thank you for the very detailed point on custodial fees for ADRs. I will include that great tidbit of info on future articles about foreign stocks.

  • CNOOC: Dividend Growth Analysis For Long-Term Investors [View article]
    Excellent point and one that I should have included in the article as dividends on foreign stocks can impact return. It's always wise to check on a foreign country's withholding tax rate, if any, before buying. Many countries have tax treaties with the US and do not withhold any tax on dividends while others have special provisions for tax favored accounts whereby any withholding tax is waived, e.g. Canada. I own CEO in a taxable account but it would be suited just as well for a Roth IRA given the 0% withholding on Red Chip stocks.
