A question from Yahoo! Answers:
Junk bonds, then tech stocks, then real estate, so what’s going to be the next boom?
Investing abroad. France has a booming IPO market right now. German real estate prices are still depressed, Japanese real estate market finally shows signs of life. The value of European buyouts in 2005 was almost twice that of U.S. buyouts. Alternative Investment Market (AIM) in London shows an increase in the number of companies listed, while NASDAQ shrinks little by little (although AIM is much smaller than NASDAQ). U.S. institutions are searching high and low for European small-cap managers.
