Surveyed managers and brokers say that the main difficulty for the Amateur investor when choosing foreign companies is its lack of awareness. Besides the well-known brands such as Amazon or Disney, the Russian private investors in General not much is known of American companies. On the activities of most American businesses, our investors have a vague idea. In contrast, the same Russian issuers which every day there are dozens of analytical reviews, comments in the media. "It is unlikely that a private investor is to engage in self-selection of individual securities, particularly in the Western areas because there is a huge variety. To perform financial statements even 1% of the traded companies are very difficult," — emphasizes the portfolio Manager of the criminal code "Alfa Capital" Edward Harin.

To navigate at the same time, according to Andrey Revenko of "Aton", is on companies that are leaders in their sector. Igor Kleshnev sure that investing in us stocks is possible and 100% of the capital as in the market to really find a very reliable company whose shares are traded on the stock exchange for more than 100 years, General Electric, IBM, and others.

Another approach is to buy a portfolio of a large number of issuers whose shares are weakly correlated with each other and periodically conduct a "rebalancing" to share one paper is not much higher than the proportion of other. This will significantly reduce the risk of volatility. However, like Edward Harin, the investor will have to spend on Commission to the broker. "When buying ETF funds, the client usually pays a lower fee for management, but on the other scale — the lack of management and rebalancing within the index are often highly technical in nature," he explains. Actively managed funds, according to Kharin to have higher commissions, but provide the investor with the opportunity to obtain a higher profitability index.

What to buy

As in this year, many market participants expect further growth of papers of IT companies and financial sector companies.

Yuri Sorkin from the "BCS" cites the example of a few investment ideas: in particular, according to him, the further growth of the stock can show Amazon that constantly directs most of the revenue for the development of new technologies and services.

"The growth of mobile devices increases consumption of content: movies, cartoons, video games," says Sorkin. In the us market there are huge corporations involved in the production of video game content. It's Electronic Arts, Disney, Netflix. All of these companies, he said, would remain attractive with the increasing purchasing power of the younger generation.

According to the surveyed, analysts, the financial sector can also become the growth leader in 2018 under the influence of the tax reform, deregulation, which promises a new fed Chairman Jerome Powell. The positive effect will also have an increase in refinancing. "Stable profit always generate action payment systems. They have many years show stable growth", — cites the example of the Deputy Director of analytical Department of "Alpari" Anna Kokoreva.
