US companies that generate most of their profits overseas have staged a powerful reversal this year compared to their domestic-facing counterparts. 

Last year saw the reverse trend in place: investors favored companies that were more exposed to the US consumer because the economy was growing above trend. 

Goldman Sachs’ equity analysts attribute the U-turn to a slowdown in US economic growth relative to the rest of the world and a weaker trade-weighted dollar.

These trends turned around most decisively during the first half of the year, as trade tensions between the US and China boiled over. It was so powerful that, even now, Goldman’s basket of stocks with high international sales remains its top-performing portfolio strategy year-to-date. 

The basket has earned a 29% total return versus 23% for both the S&P 500 and Goldman’s basket of stocks with high domestic sales.
