Abstract: This paper investigates the systematic covariation in equity prices among US and Asia-Pacific countries during the 1980s by employing the statistical technique of factor analysis. Our results suggest that if US investors and portfolio managers were to select a large and well developed market for risk diversification, then USA, Taiwan and Japan would be appropriate. The final choice depends very much on the risk-return preference of individual investors.
