Three Country ETFs that beat the S&P 500 in 2018

Wow, what a difference a year makes in the stock market.  While 2017 was a banner year for many foreign ETF‘s as well as the S&P 500, 2018 performance was quite different.  The U.S. stock market experienced a loss for the year, while the only foreign markets to experience any growth were in the middle east.
