Shaan23 I thought ADR"s do eliminate currency risk. We're investing domestically due to them and no longer have to invest our domestic current in foreign markets to attain the shares
CJPerugini ^ That was what I thought at first too. The only thing that ADRs provide investors is the convenience of not having to convert their US$ to foreign currency. You are still indirectly subjected to currency risk.
ascruggs92 Buying ADR's eliminates currency risk for you as an individual, but it does not eliminate currency risk for the company, which means that it effects you as a shareholder.
forry9er I saw "Eliminate" and immediately thought B & C could not be true. "Mitigate" maybe, "eliminate?" impossible.
