Last year saw the reverse trend in place: investors favored companies that were more exposed to the US consumer because the economy was growing above trend. Goldman Sachs equity analysts attribute the U-turn to a slowdown in US economic growth relative to the rest of the world and a weaker trade-weighted dollar. These trends turned around most decisively during the first half of the year, as trade tensions between the US and China boiled over. It was so powerful that, even now, Goldman s basket of stocks with high international sales remains its top-performing portfolio strategy year-to-date. The basket has earned a 29% total return versus 23% for both the S P 500 and Goldman s basket of stocks with high domestic sales. Listed below are the 13 stocks could continue to benefit if these performance patterns hold. The median company in Goldman s basket generates 70% of its revenue outside the US versus 29% for the median S P 500 firm.SEE ALSO: One market expert breaks down why the mother of all bubbles is unlike anything investors have ever seen — and lays out additional evidence that a crisis is approaching 1.
