3 Top-Performing Global Markets in 2013

As strongly as the Dow Jones Industrials (DJINDICES: ^DJI  ) have performed in 2013, some international markets have done even better. In the following video, Fool markets analyst Mike Klesta talks with Fool contributor Dan Caplinger about three world stock markets that have outpaced the Dow so far this year.

As Dan and Mike discuss, each of these markets has a surprising element to it, with one having overcome weakness in Europe to shine, a second rising from the depths of a multi-decade stock market slump, and the last advancing despite fairly strong anti-capitalist nationalistic tendencies. Dan discusses each of the three markets as well as some ways you can take advantage of them in your portfolio, both through individual stocks and through broader-based investment vehicles.
