Everywhere you look these days, it seems to be bad news for folks who invest overseas.

From the fallout caused by a continuing trade war with China to the continued uncertainty posed by Brexit to ever-present geopolitical risks in the Middle East, the headlines don’t inspire confidence. And besides, with the S&P 500 index /zigman2/quotes/210599714/realtime SPX +0.89% up 14% or so year-to-date, it seems like anyone buying stocks abroad is just looking for trouble.

As with so many things in investing, the truth is much more complicated.
