Here’s how much the S&P 500 companies that make most of their money in the US have outperformed their global rivals

Multinational is one thing, but 2022 was not the year for stocks to have a truly international presence.

According to Goldman Sachs analysis, S&P 500 companies with high exposure to domestic sales have outperformed stocks with high international sales by 9 percentage points. Granted, it’s not a great performance, with the domestic basket down 15%, but it’s better than the 24% drop for overseas-facing companies.

Part of the reason domestic companies fared better is the strengthening of the US dollar. The other main reason is simply the collapse of the sector – the sector with the highest percentage of foreign sales is information technology, which has been dragged down by rising interest rates, making long-lived assets less attractive.

What the analysis also finds is that only 3% of the S&P 500’s revenue was explicitly derived from China, which compares to the country’s roughly 18% share of global gross domestic product. Companies have discretion in how they report international exposure — accounting rules require them to identify any geographic segment that contributes at least 10% of sales, and they can choose to report by region or country.

Goldman’s analysis was done by analyzing 10,000 records, and even then, the bank was only able to get revenue, not profit figures, by country. So to make a profit, they rely on US government data to show that only 17% of profits are from abroad.

The investment bank divided the findings into different investment baskets. Goldman’s domestic sales basket includes Verizon Communications VZ,
T-Mobile US TMUS
target TGT,
Altria MO,
Wells Fargo WFC,
Charles Schwab SCHW,
CVS Health CVS,

and its international sales basket includes Alphabet GOOGL,

Philip Morris International PM,
ExxonMobil XOM,
Abbott ABT Laboratories,
