These 15 European Dividend Stocks Could Gain Mostly From A Rising Dollar

15 Europe Dividend Stocks Gaining Mostly From A Rising Dollar originally appeared at long-term-investments.blogspot.comOne growing trend on the market is the gaining U.S. Dollar Index. 

The dollar is becoming more and more expensive against major currencies on the world and a growing number of companies announce to get hurt by higher rates.

A second trend is the overvaluation of the market, caused by the monetary easing of the FED. Stocks traded at P/E levels over 20. That's a big number and not justifiable with slow growth.

Today I like to show you some of the stocks from Europe that could benefit from an ongoing rising dollar. Those stocks sell a lot of stuff in U.S. Dollar.

Attached is a small list of 15 companies, headquartered in Europe with annual sales from U.S., North America or Canada above 50 percent of total sales.
