    Asian Stocks: 4 Great Funds for a Far East Surge

    We've all heard that diversification is good for a portfolio. Considering that the U.S. stock market is at record highs, and stocks are about as pricey as they get, investors may want to consider spreading around some of their risk. And Asian stocks might be the best place in the world for that right now. If you want to diversify outside the U.S. market, there's a problem: Most major markets don't look any safer than the U.S. Europe has been underperforming for literally years with no real sign of reversing that trend.
