Susan Dziubinski: Hi, I'm Susan Dziubinski with Morningstar. Foreign-stock funds can help investors round out their exposure to the global stock market. Today, we're taking a look at three highly rated international funds that are a little bit more risky than their more staid core fund counterparts.

Tony Thomas: Gold-rated Dodge & Cox International Stock is a great way to add non-U.S. stocks into one's portfolio for a couple of reasons. First, Dodge & Cox has a bevy of resources at its disposal. It has a very talented analyst team. Those analysts have global reach in their coverage responsibilities, and then there's an excellent investment committee that runs the fund. It's got eight members. It's got a nice mix of veteran managers who have seen a lot of different markets and some rising stars at the firm. So, I'm confident in its personnel going forward.
