From those of you who are not familiar with these, from wiki: "An American depositary receipt (ADR) is a negotiable security that represents securities of a non-U.S. company that trades in the U.S. financial markets[SUP].[/SUP][SUP][/SUP] They are the domestic equivalent of global depository receipts. Securities of a foreign company that are represented by an ADR are called American depositary shares (ADSs). Shares of many non-U.S. companies trade on U.S. stock exchanges through ADRs. ADRs are denominated and pay dividends in U.S. dollars and may be traded like regular shares of stock." But what I'd like to know is: Is there anything other than the certain fees involved (already checked those) that I need to take into account before I grab one of these?
