It’s not that the recent volatility of the U.S. stock market hasn’t created a ripple effect that worked against — and then for — companies based in other countries, it’s that our wild swings haven’t necessarily been mirrored overseas.

Some overseas names shrugged off the early-February meltdown, while other global stocks took an even bigger hit, making them big-time bargains now.

To that end (and to shield yourself from future unknowns unique to the U.S. marketplace), here’s a look at nine global stocks you might want to add to your portfolio sooner than later. Doing so adds another level of diversity to your aggregate holdings.
