Interest rates are near zero. Savings accounts pay next to nothing. 10-Year Treasuries pay under 3%.

The average yield for all stocks in the S&P 500 is just 2.0%.

Now, I'm not trying to ruin your day by bringing this up. In fact, you can still find plenty of great yields here in the United States. I'll even show you a list of 18 of the United States' highest-yielding stocks later in today's course.

But for years I've been watching what amounts to a silent revolution in income investing.

Take a look at some of what I've uncovered...

There is a Norwegian offshore drilling company with a global fleet of rigs that can drill just about anywhere in the world. Based on its last four dividends, the shares have paid out $2.88 each, giving the stock a yield of 9.5% at recent prices. Since 2006, the shares have soared from less than $10 to over $30.

Warren Buffett bought his first stake in one of my favorite international high yielders back in 2006. Today he owns 4 million shares that pay 5% annually. The annual dividend of $1.82 per share nets Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK-B) more than $7 million per year... and the shares trade right here on the New York Stock Exchange.

One fund I found, focused solely on a single country, pays more than 10.5% annually. The boom for commodities has been a gift to the country, helping this fund pay massive dividends to its shareholders.

Most U.S. investors don't even know that these high-yield stocks exist. But I'm convinced once this story gets out, just about EVERY serious income investor will want to start taking advantage of these yields.

In fact, thousands of investors just like you already are...

For instance, Jerry L. from Toronto says one of the best investments he ever made was putting $7,000 into one of these investments -- Canada's largest real estate investment trust.

Today shares of the trust yield 5.5%, and Jerry tells us his stake is worth more than $45,000... even after he sold a third of his holdings back in 2006.

And Alice M. from Alliance, Ohio told us she bought a foreign energy stock that's paid her a great dividend for seven years, "on the order of 7%" each year."

I want to show you exactly how to follow in their footsteps. For now, just know that their success stems from investing in high yields that the majority of investors simply don't know about... yet.

Actually, when I decided to put together this course, the first thing I did was run the numbers to see just how large an opportunity we're talking about.

Remember, as I just told you, the average U.S. stock pays just 2.0%. Yes, you can still find a few select high yields, but in general, it's a cash-flow desert here in America for anyone who needs to bank a comfortable income off their portfolio.

While you can find the occasional high-yielding stock, odds are that anything paying above say, 12%, is a basket case.

When I weeded out the companies that don't even turn a profit, I found only 18 U.S. common stocks pay yields of more than 12%.

You can see all 18 of them for yourself:

Just 18 survivors. But guess what?

There are actually hundreds of 12% yields out there... but few investors know where to find them.

That's because the vast majority of the world's highest yields aren't being paid out by U.S. companies...

Expand your horizon a bit, and it's a completely different story. That's what the investors I just told you about have figured out.

Right now, 412 additional companies are yielding more than 12% -- they just aren't based in the U.S.

18 here versus 412 abroad -- where do you think the best hunting ground is for investors who are truly serious about high yields?

Fact is, any income investor who doesn't look overseas is essentially giving up on 96% of the world's highest yields before they even start.

Now, I've researched this topic for over a decade, and I've shared this exact same story with literally thousands of investors over the past few years. So I know from experience that many people think it's too good to be true.

That's why in today's course I'm not going to just tell you about the high yields available around the world.

I want to show you why international stocks yield so much more... how you can buy these stocks without leaving the U.S. markets... and even provide several examples -- including names and ticker symbols -- you can use to start your own international high-yield portfolio.

But before I get too far ahead, let me introduce myself.

My name is Paul Tracy. I'm the co-founder of StreetAuthority, one of the nation's fastest-growing financial research firms.

My business partner and I started StreetAuthority a decade ago. We literally started the business from our kitchen tables. It's funny to think about now, but I can tell you back then we tried to keep our humble start a secret.

But then a funny thing happened...

People began to see StreetAuthority knew what we were talking about. We were making investors money.

Gradually more investors learned about us. Then our analysis started to appear on AOL,,, and Yahoo Finance. That brought more readers.

Over the years, our business has grown like a weed. We now have two offices -- one in Gaithersburg, Maryland and another in Austin, Texas. We employ dozens of people, and we have analysts and researchers all over the U.S. and Canada.

Today, we publish our research to over 2 million readers a month in 175 different countries across the globe.

We've made a name for ourselves, especially when it comes to income investing.

StreetAuthority publishes the most widely read dividend-focused newsletter in the country, High-Yield Investing. With about 40,000 paid subscribers, more investors rely on us to lead them to safe high yields than any other service.

And a few years ago, we started noticing that more and more of the highest yields we were finding were coming from foreign countries.

Back then we featured a closed-end Asian fund yielding 19.6% . . . a Spanish phone company yielding 11.2% . . . a South American country fund yielding 25.3% . . . a regional European fund paying 13.8% . . .an emerging market stock fund yielding 20.8% . . . an Australian real-estate firm paying 14.1% . . . and a Bermuda-based shipping firm yielding 17.4%.

Let me tell you, I'd prefer to pocket huge yields from IBM (NYSE: IBM) and other home-grown blue chips. But these days, it just isn't happening. IBM pays a miserably low dividend yield of less than 2%. And the same goes for other major U.S. companies.

The bottom line is that if you want high yields, then you have to look at international companies.

So rather than fight this trend, we started to embrace it...

A few years back we started to research just exactly what was out there when it came to international high yields. We were simply blown away by the findings.

412 Stocks Paying 12%... And Average Yields
That Are DOUBLE the U.S.

I already told you about the staggering number of 12% yielders abroad, but that's just the tip of the iceberg...

You see, it's not just a bunch of 12%-plus yields that make the international markets so interesting. Foreign companies are simply paying higher yields across the board.

Take a look at my table and you can see the difference between what we get from U.S. companies and what's available from international companies. Keep in mind that I only looked at the common stocks of companies that were profitable over the past year.

36 profitable U.S. companies yield over 10% compared to 650 international companies.

172 U.S. companies yield over 6% compared to 2,479 abroad.

I think you're starting to see why I think in just a few years nearly every serious income investor will include international stocks in their portfolio.

But you don't have to just take my word for it...

In June 2011, Money Magazine confirmed what I've been trying to tell investors for years:

"Your quest for dividend payers can no longer stop at our shores. These days, some of the heftiest payouts and fastest dividend growth are being delivered by companies abroad."

- Money Magazine, June 8, 2011

The simple fact is that when you start looking abroad, high yielders are practically a dime a dozen.

I've told you a couple of times now that the S&P 500 pays an average yield of 2.0%. That makes us one of the lowest-yielding markets in the world.

But compare that to what I'm seeing in international markets.

Germany's average yield is 3.6%... Brazil's average yield is 4.1%... the United Kingdom yields 3.4%... Australia yields 4.5%... New Zealand pays 4.4%. Take a look:

And remember, those are just the averages, weighed down by large numbers of stocks that don't yield a cent.

As Judy Sarayan, a fund manager at mega-investment firm Eaton Vance explained, "There's a much stronger dividend culture abroad... Individual investors play a larger role in those markets, and they have always demanded more dividends."

That difference is pretty dramatic when you start looking at some individual examples of higher yields abroad.

Take banks, for instance. Here at home, Bank of America (NYSE: BAC) used to pay investors $2.56 per share before the financial crisis. That represented a yield of more than 6%.

Of course, we all know what happened next. Today, BAC pays a laughable $0.01 (yes, one penny) each quarter.

But it's a completely different story outside the United States.

Santiago, Chile-based Corpbanca SA (NYSE: BCA) is a perfect example.

Chile's largest bank, Corpbanca offers commercial and retail banking through more than 100 offices. The bank also offers mutual fund management, insurance, and securities brokerages through a network of subsidiaries. Not only have the shares soared over the past five years, but dividends now total $1.66 per share each year. That gives the stock a yield of over 7.0% at recent prices.

It's the same thing for utilities. They are one of the best places to search for yields in the U.S. North Carolina's Duke Energy (NYSE: DUK) pays a yield of about 5.5%. But even that is topped by international utility stocks like Germany's E.ON AG (OTC: EONGY).

E.ON AG is the world's largest energy provider. It serves over 26 million customers and employs more than 75,000 people.

Its shares pay investors $2.16 a year, for a yield of over 10%... that's about twice as much income as the average utility here in the U.S.

Still, most U.S. investors are simply unaware of what they're missing. Put simply, if you want to earn the most income possible, then you have to start considering international income stocks.

And the best news? Big dividends aren't the only benefit...

Your Choice: Middling Returns -- Or Go
Where the Growth Is

The higher yields you can find from international companies are compelling, but if that's all you're focused on, you're missing what may be an even better reason to invest abroad.

International markets are where the growth is.

The United States is unlike any other nation on the planet. It's the largest economy. It's home to the world's most innovative entrepreneurs. But the simple fact is that the headiest days of our economic growth are behind us. It's simply the law of large numbers.

With an economy in excess of $14 trillion, growing more than a few percent each year is a major undertaking.

In fact, think back about what we've seen over the past few years. The U.S. government has spent trillions in an effort to stimulate the economy. The Federal Reserve has spent trillions more. Interest rates have been slashed to zero.

And yet, the U.S. economy grew 2.8% in 2010. Not bad, but only good enough to rank us 117th in the world -- between South Africa and Cameroon -- when it comes to annual GDP growth.

Qatar topped this list with 16.3% growth. Singapore saw a 14.4% rise in GDP. Panama, 7.5%... South Korea, 6.1%... Poland, 3.8%... even Germany boosted its GDP at a 3.5% annual rate.

But to me, GDP numbers alone don't tell the entire story. I much prefer to know what companies and their CEOs are actually seeing. To investors like you and me, that's the real story.

For example, in a recent quarter Apple (NYSE: AAPL) saw sales in North America soar 63% year-over-year... but abroad, sales were up 95%.

It's the same for credit card giant MasterCard (NYSE: MA). They saw the amount charged on their cards rise 9.9% in the United States, but 19.9% abroad.

Even McDonald's (NYSE: MCD) saw sales up more than 12% in its international markets versus less than 3% here at home.

Just imagine what companies focused solely on international markets are doing...

Take AmBev (NYSE: ABV) for instance. This company's business couldn't be simpler -- it distributes beer and soda in Brazil and throughout South America.  It's actually the fourth-largest beer producer in the world.

Over the past five years, sales have grown 77% and profits have risen 233%. That's led to a surge in the share price. In just five years AmBev's shares have gained more than 270%. And with dividends included, your total return is more than 350%.

Compare that to the S&P 500's gain of just 12.6% during that same period.

Meanwhile, some of America's greatest CEOs are simply glowing about expanding into faster-growing international markets.

Take what Howard Shultz, CEO of Starbucks (Nasdaq: SBUX), had to say about his company's growth prospects in China...

"I think perhaps the most encouraging aspect of our Chinese business to date is the response that we're getting in secondary and tertiary markets in cities that most Americans have never heard of with populations ranging from 1 million to 6 million or 7 million people.

So when we look at the number of cities in China that are going to have 1 million people or more and the government officials are telling us it's going to be over 100 cities, the opportunity I think we have is very significant."

And then there's Warren Buffett, the world's most famous investor, giving his thoughts on India...

"The market is growing, getting more prosperous by the day, where businesses are flourishing. This is a dream market in a sense. The number of people, the buying power that they are gaining, the ability to produce things, everything is getting better every day."

That's not mincing words. But what does this rosy outlook from some of America's greatest CEO's actually mean for individual investors?

It means U.S. investors have a great opportunity to capture big gains by investing in foreign stocks.

You can see for yourself...

Pauli B. from Hollywood, Florida bought 500 shares of Sociedad Quimica y Minera (NYSE: SQM), a Chilean fertilizer and chemical company, back in 2005. He tells us his investment has risen from $5,700 to $27,000... and he has collected over $1,800 in dividends.

And Jerry S. from Bend, Oregon has a similar story. He told us he bought 25,000 shares of Silver Wheaton (NYSE: SLW), a Canadian silver royalty trust, at just $3.00 per share. Today, those shares trade for more than $30 each.

As Jerry told us, "It was a good thing to purchase."

You see, there's a correlation between economic growth and rising stock prices. The faster the growth, typically the higher the stock market moves.

So it shouldn't surprise you that in the one-year period between August 2010 and August 2011, the S&P 500 returned 15.9%. That's certainly nothing to sneeze at, but when you look at the total performance worldwide, the U.S. market ranked just 36th in the world over that period.

And over the past five years, the S&P 500 has returned 12.6%. But 34 other countries delivered better stock market returns. According to Bloomberg, countries like Chile, Germany, and even Mexico have handily outperformed the U.S. market.

The opportunities abroad have become so profound that even New York City is looking to invest more overseas to grow its city pension...

"Calling the rising cost of city pensions "unsustainable," Deputy Mayor Robert K. Steel said Thursday that New York City should move swiftly to overhaul its benefit system, including by investing more funds in overseas markets.

Mr. Steel, who oversees economic development for Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, said moving retiree investments out of American stock markets and into international equities could bring higher returns, helping alleviate some pressure on the city's budget."

-- The New York Times (Blog), July 14, 2011

So with all that in mind, how can you start boosting both your growth AND your dividend income by investing in international companies?

I'll show you how. And I'll even show you how to lock in international high yields without leaving the U.S. markets. Simply keep reading...

My Little "Trick" to Capturing
the World's Highest Yields

Before I go any further, I want to clear up one common misconception.

Buying high-yield international stocks isn't difficult. You don't have to change currencies... you don't have to open a new brokerage account. Heck, you don't have to even leave the New York Stock Exchange.

In fact, thousands of these companies currently trade right here in the United States.

Let me give you an example...

I'm a fan of Fly Leasing (NYSE: FLY). This Ireland-based company leases airplanes to 53 airlines in 29 countries.

Would I invest in an airline? No way -- fuel prices, cutthroat profit margins, and thousands of employees to pay -- that's a lot of risk.

But would I invest in a company that simply provides the planes and earns a paycheck for leasing them? Absolutely...

In a world that's seeing soaring air traffic, it's a no-brainer. And best of all, FLY pays $0.80 a share in quarterly installments. That gives the stock a yield of 7%.

Buying shares of Fly Leasing is a piece of cake... it trades as an American Depositary Receipt (ADR) on the New York Stock Exchange. That means the shares trade right here in the U.S. just like any other stock. You can buy them just as easily as you would a share of Walmart (NYSE: WMT) or General Electric (NYSE: GE).

According to Bloomberg, 2,328 international stocks currently trade in the United States. That includes some of the world's largest companies -- like PetroChina (NYSE: PTR) and Vodafone (NYSE: VOD).

Now, not all of those are high yielders. But in that list are hundreds for investors to choose from. Names like France Telecom (NYSE: FTE), which pays more than 10%... and German energy giant E.ON AG (OTC: EONGY), which also pays a double-digit yield.

But what about all those high yielders you can't buy here in the United States? Are they simply untouchable?

Think again.

The rise of international markets hasn't been lost on investors -- more importantly, it hasn't been lost on the companies that create investment funds.

Over the past few years dozens of funds that focus on international dividend payers have come to market.

These funds scour the globe in search of the highest yields. They then combine them all into a nice neat package for U.S. investors to buy.

Let me give you an example.

Most investors have never heard of the AllianceBernstein Global High Income Fund (NYSE: AWF).

This fund is exactly the sort of find I'm talking about... it invests in hundreds of bonds around the world. Many of these securities are difficult -- if not impossible -- for average investors to buy. But AWF gives you an opportunity to buy a basket of them without leaving the United States.

The fund owns government bonds from Brazil that pay 12.5% annually. It owns bonds from Russia's Gazprom -- the world's largest natural gas explorer -- that pay 9.25%. But not all of its holdings are from abroad. It also balances out that exposure with bonds from American companies -- like Caesars Entertainment notes paying 11.25%.

But focusing heavily on overseas bonds -- where yields are higher -- allows AWF to throw off a spectacular stream of income. This diversified fund pays $0.10 per share every month, giving it a yield of 9%-plus at recent prices.

And over the last five years that monthly income stream has soared 33%...

I think by now you're starting to see the appeal of international income stocks.

But what about the safety of international investments? With all the turmoil we're seeing around the world, isn't it risky to invest abroad?

These 18 Countries Are Safer Investments
Than the United States

I've talked to plenty of investors over the past several years. And I've noticed that when you bring up investing in international companies, there are tons of misconceptions.

First and foremost -- many investors see other countries as somehow being "riskier" than the United States.

For me, it's the exact opposite... I see them as safe havens.

I don't know about you, but I have a lot tied to the economic well-being of the United States. My business is based here. I own property here. And you better believe I own stocks in this country.

When you think in those terms, it's easy to see just how closely your future is tied the future of the U.S.

But there are some grim realities we need to face.

America's total debt load already tops $14 trillion --and it's projected to reach $22 trillion by 2020.

When you add in the unfunded liabilities of Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare, our debt is actually a staggering $120 trillion.

That's $385,000 for every man, woman and child in America.

Like a taxi meter spinning faster and faster, we are slipping $3.9 billion deeper into the hole every day -- at a rate of $163 million per hour.

Our credit rating was even knocked down from its golden "AAA" status by Standard & Poor's

At this point, if you aren't diversifying your investments outside the United States, then I think you're taking far too much risk.

Don't get me wrong -- despite the issues we face in the U.S., I'd still take it over any other nation on the planet. I love this country. But that doesn't mean I want every dollar I invest to stay here at home.

And the truth is, if you focus only on U.S. companies, then you're missing out on thousands of great international businesses.

For example, of the ten largest companies by revenue on the planet, only three are in the United States.

U.S.-based Walmart (NYSE: WMT) takes the cake for the world's largest public company by revenues... but foreign companies like Royal Dutch Shell, Total S.A., and Japan Post Holdings round out the top 10.

And only four of the world's ten largest pharmaceutical companies are based in the U.S. Most of the largest companies -- like Roche, Novartis, and Bayer -- are all based internationally.

On top of that, countries like Australia are seeing unemployment rates of just 4.9%... Brazil is at 6.5%... Germany 6.0%... South Korea's unemployment rate is just 3.5%.

No, not every country is a safe haven. Put your money in a risky play like Greece... or Italy... or any number of countries with major debt problems, and don't be surprised if even the safe dividend payers let you down.

But it's not the same everywhere...

Currently, a total of 18 countries and territories have earned "AAA" credit ratings from Standard & Poor's. And as I mentioned earlier, the United States isn't one of them.

Instead, this list of safe havens includes nations like Australia, Norway, Singapore, and Switzerland.

And its easy to see why. According to the CIA World Factbook, Norway's public debt-to-GDP ratio is just 48%. Switzerland's is just 39%. And Australia's is 27%. That's not to say none of the "AAA"-rated countries have large debts, but for the most part, they are in better shape than the United States.

According to The Economist Intelligence Unit, Norway is even running a 12.5% budget surplus this year!

When you realize that, why would you beat yourself up fighting the frustrating economic climate here at home?

And the best news is that there is an added bonus to investing in economies stronger than our own. As I'll show you, that bonus can mean a double-digit boost to your income...

How to Boost Your Income Stream by 10%-Plus...
in a Single Year

I've talked a lot about the advantages of adding international high-yield stocks to your portfolio.

But what I haven't mentioned may be one of the best reasons to invest abroad...

You've no doubt seen the headlines. The almighty dollar is weakening. It has been for years.

But guess what? That's a positive -- IF you're investing in international dividend payers. In fact, in some cases you could have seen a 10% boost in your income, even without a dividend increase.

In simple terms, here's how it works...

Say five years ago you took the trip of a lifetime to Australia. Back then, $1 U.S. bought you roughly $1.30 Australian. That means a hotel room priced at $100 Australian dollars only cost about $77 U.S. dollars thanks to a favorable exchange rate.

But today, the U.S. dollar has plummeted. It now trades even with the Aussie dollar. That $100 room in Aussie dollars will now cost you $100 U.S. dollars -- a 30% increase, even though the hotel's rate didn't change.

What does this have to do with dividends? Well, what's bad news for your vacation is great news for your international income investments.

Say you bought an Australian company five years ago that paid a dividend of 10 Australian dollars each year. Back then, you would have earned $7.70 in U.S. dollars after conversion.

But today, that same 10 Aussie dollar dividend would be worth $10 in the U.S. as well... or 30% more.

The bottom line is if the U.S. dollar continues to weaken versus other major foreign currencies, then your dividends will increase over time... even if the company you invest in keeps its dividend payment the same.

The best news is that I see this trend continuing for at least the next two or three years.

And I'm not the only one who thinks this:

"If you ask me if the U.S. dollar is going to hold its purchasing power fully at the level of 2011, five years, ten years or twenty years from now, I would tell you it will not."

-Warren Buffett, March 25, 2011

"America is also pursuing a policy of currency weakening"

-Alan Greenspan, November 10, 2010

"Don't Like a Weak Dollar? Might As Well Get Used to It", April 21, 2011

Recognizing this trend years ago -- and investing alongside it -- has already given international income investors a major boost.

You can see for yourself how the falling dollar has helped score some great returns in international markets...

Selected Market Returns Over the Past 5 Years

Country Return in Home Currency Return in U.S. Dollar Terms
Peru 146.3% 191.1%
Chile 112.5% 152.1%
Brazil 58.9% 122.3%
Taiwan 35.1% 53.9%
Germany 24.3% 38.1%
Canada 8.7% 28.4%
New Zealand -4.6% 34.8%
United States 12.6% 12.6%
* Data from 08/01/06 - 08/01/11. S&P 500 return includes dividends

This table makes it easy to see how a falling dollar actually helps... if you're invested abroad. For instance, the New Zealand market actually declined over the past five years when measured in New Zealand dollars, but it's showing a gain of nearly 35% for U.S. investors when you factor in the falling U.S. dollar.

Now keep in mind, if the dollar were to rally, the opposite would happen. But for a variety of reasons I won't bore you with today, I think the U.S. dollar will continue to lose value in the coming years.

Not Replacing Income Investing at Home... Just Adding Hundreds More High-Yield Opportunities

I want to make something clear -- I don't think you should drop everything and put every dollar you have into international high yielders. Truth is, the size and scope of the U.S. market makes it a great place to search for income investments.

But limiting yourself to only the U.S. is like going to a restaurant and limiting your options to just one side of the menu. Sure you can find something you like... but wouldn't you rather see all the options?

As you've seen, there are higher yields abroad... and higher growth... and safer investments. I think the choice is simple.

Now, this point represents the end of our course. But if you have interest in learning more about international high-yield investments, I encourage you to keep reading...

The 3 Best International High-Yield
Stocks to Hold Forever

As I mentioned earlier, I co-founded StreetAuthority a decade ago.

I got into this business because I have a passion for the markets. I bought my first stock when I was still in high school -- while most of my buddies were sneaking beers.

Over the years, I've bought and sold literally millions of dollars worth of stocks. And today, I pay salaries of several million dollars per year to employ some of the smartest investment minds in the country. But before that, I made every investment decision in the company myself.

In other words, I know what makes a good investment... and what makes a bad investment.

But over the past few years -- especially during the teeth of the recession -- I noticed something disturbing.

Thousands... even millions of investors starting dumping what I knew were good investments that should be held for the long term.

I backed up the truck on these stocks. Take a look at a few of my personal buys during the bottom of the last bear market...

As the co-founder of an investment research firm, it bothered me investors were dumping what I saw as unbelievable opportunities. And even worse, investors were selling some of the most dominant companies on the planet -- the exact type of stocks I like to buy and hold forever.

Ever since, I've been throwing around this idea in my head of creating a list of stocks that investors could hold forever. They could simply buy the shares and forget about them.

They wouldn't have to worry about what the market is doing... or interest rates... or GDP... or inflation.

Basically, I wanted to show investors that investing doesn't have to be complicated. And you don't have to watch the stock market every day to make money.

All you have to do is find a handful of companies that enjoy huge (and lasting) advantages over the competition... companies that pay their investors each and every year by dishing out fat dividends... and companies that are buying back massive amounts of their own stock.

These are the kinds of companies that can make you money no matter what. Once you find them, the rest is simple -- just buy their shares and hold forever.

So a while back, I did just that. I put together a report that focused on my favorite stocks to hold forever. And sure enough, that report turned into one of the most popular advisories StreetAuthority has published... ever.

That made it a no-brainer to decide what I needed to provide readers of High-Yield International.

So I went on the hunt for the same sort of stocks -- only this time, with a focus exclusively on international income stocks.

I just put my findings into a special research report, titled The 3 Best International Income Stocks to Hold Forever.

In this report, I detail the three high-yield stocks from abroad that I think you should buy, forget about, and hold forever. It even includes one idea that has soared more than 700% since it first went public back in 2004.

I've decided to include this report at no extra charge with your subscription to my monthly High-Yield International advisory.
