In times of market uncertainty, investors often look to international and emerging markets for diversification and better returns. At this point, investors might want to look north and south to Canada and Mexico. Aside from China, Canada and Mexico are the U.S.’s top two trading partners, and while somewhat independent, they also can benefit from a U.S. recovery, according to MarketWatch.

Scott Barclay of The Investing Opinion newsletter said, “Both Canada and Mexico represent opportunity and peril. An investor needs to be confident that oil will rise in price to consider Canada a good investment. Mexico is actually more diverse. However, government corruption presents headline risk.” Notably, both countries’ economies grew faster than that of the U.S.

John O’Donnell of Online Trading Academy said that Mexico could “take over the manufacturing prowess that China currently holds,” mentioning that Mexico’s wages are only 42% higher than China’s, in comparison to 250% 10 years prior. He also mentions that Mexico’s proximity to the U.S. is beneficial for shipping costs in contrast to China.
