I've been scratching my head slightly at some of the choices people are considering here.

The theme as been ... it's hard to find value so ...

1) I'm going to modify my investment criteria

2) Move to cash (not a bad option of course. I'm currently 14% cash)

Nobody seems to be considering broadening the pool of stocks they pick from and given that Stockopedia has a European version I'm surprised. In fact there is no european stock discussion apart from Ben's articles.

However, I've found I don't have to modify my criteria to uncover high quality European stocks with value or growth potential. In selecting them I might ask for a slighty better risk return profile to cover increased costs, e.g. I have to telephone trade for some smaller european stocks.

Here are some examples that might tickle your fancy ... and remember the significance of the Stockopedia ranking increases in the European version as it considers 7000+ stocks.
