Best Russian Stocks To Buy Now
Yet the negative media portrayal may mask viable investment opportunities in the country. Here are five of the best Russian stocks you might want to consider buying: Veon Ltd. (VEON 0.11%), Mobile TeleSystems (MBT), Mechel PAO (MTL), Yandex (YNDX -6.79%), and Qiwi plc (QIWI 9.88%).

Regardless of where they do business, all five of these stocks trade on the major NYSE or Nasdaq U.S. stock exchanges. While it's possible to buy stock in other well-known Russian businesses -- Gazprom, Lukoil, Norilsk Nickel to name a few -- in the U.S., to do that you need to place orders on the over-the-counter (OTC) market. In doing so, you'll assume the risk of investing in a less liquid marketplace where it's harder to determine a fair price, and trading volumes may be sparse. Furthermore, you may find yourself investing "blind" as OTC-listed stocks don't have the same requirements for financial disclosure with the SEC as NYSE- and Nasdaq-listed stocks do.
The other advantage, of course, is that, as you can see in the chart above, these Russian stocks are cheap. With the exception of "tech" firms Yandex and Qiwi, which went public on the Nasdaq in 2011 and 2013, respectively, these Russian equities all sell for single-digit multiples to trailing earnings -- prices so low you usually don't see them except among the most troubled companies here in the U.S.
Earning $1 billion a year in profits, Mobile TeleSystems is a free-cash-flow monster, throwing off $1.26 billion in cash profits over the past year. With so much cash at its disposal, Mobile TeleSystems is the most generous of the easy-to-invest-in Russian stocks, paying a 9% dividend yield that dwarfs the payouts of U.S. analogs Verizon (VZ 0.59%) and AT&T (T 0.89%). And Mobile TeleSystems' payout ratio is 81%, meaning it still has room to grow its dividend a bit.
Rather than the cheapest stocks on this list (Mechel and Veon), the most popular and fastest grower (Yandex), or the biggest dividend payer (Mobile TeleSystems), Qiwi is my favorite "Russian" stock today.
Emerging market stocks have had a rollercoaster ride in recent years. This is not unusual for an inherently volatile section of the global stock market. However, investors with longer time horizons shouldn't be deterred. As the economic engine shifts increasingly east and south, and capital markets develop in tandem, emerging markets would be expected to offer returns in excess of the developed world.

Moscow ceased trading after stocks capitulated on the back of Russia's invasion of Ukraine, reopening a month later after the exchange's longest shutdown since the fall of the Soviet Union. The Moscow Exchange also had its recognized status revoked by many international powers.
Based on a model that links stocks and bond markets, MSCI on Friday said the market for credit-default swaps suggests that Russian stocks "may be essentially worthless" in contrast to the prices listed on the exchange.
"The incongruity between the CDS market and the listed prices of Russian stocks may be due to a combination of technical-default fear, failure of the CDS auction mechanism, restrictions on trading CDS linked to the securities of sanctioned companies and a lower perceived value of Russian equity for CDS investors," MSCI Senior Associate Zoltan Sass added in Friday's report.
"A basic explanation for the disconnect is that investors trading on one market are not trading on the other. Most foreigners are unable to trade Russian stocks, and CDS are only accessible to institutional investors," Sass added.
"Russian companies may continue to operate, generate revenue and pay dividends, which means they may have value to the small fraction of investors who can invest in them. In contrast, Russian stocks appear to be worthless from the perspective of CDS investors," Sass said.
He suggested that greater consistency in pricing could be achieved through the reopening and reintegrating of Russian markets and the economy, and the lifting of sanctions, but said in the meantime, investors may seek a deeper picture of price drivers in stocks by looking beyond a single asset class.

In most cases, Russian stocks cannot be traded in the United States at this time. Between U.S. sanctions intended to punish Russia for its invasion of Ukraine and actions by the Russian government that are meant to be retaliatory, U.S. investors cannot purchase Russian stocks or mutual funds that are primarily comprised of Russian stocks.
No. On June 6, 2022, the Biden administration issued an executive order prohibiting investors in the U.S. from purchasing new or existing bonds or stocks securities issued by any entity in the Russian Federation. Investors may, but are not required to, sell their Russian positions. They may only do so to an investor outside of the United States.
The bottom line is that the likelihood that your portfolio has a large position in Russian stocks or bonds is small, particularly if you invest in mutual funds. If you do hold Russian positions, you may have to hold onto them unless you can sell them to someone outside the United States.
Those are the two largest Russia-only ETFs in the U.S., but plenty of emerging markets funds for U.S. investors with disproportionate exposure to Russian stocks have also declined sharply. According to Morningstar, the GQG Partners Emerging Markets Fund had trimmed its exposure to Russia to 3.7% by last Friday from 16% at the end of the year, and many others likely adjusted their Russian positions since their most recent disclosures to numb the severity of the impact on their portfolios, but all have lagged U.S. markets. Here are some of the victims.

For the past year, the Ukraine conflict has disrupted financial markets around the world. The U.S. is only one of several countries that have imposed economic sanctions on Russia in retaliation for its invasion of Ukraine. Russia's economy is feeling the pain. The International Monetary Fund estimates Russia's gross domestic product contracted 2.2% in 2022. The good news for U.S. investors is that most major U.S. stocks have relatively little business exposure to Russia and Ukraine, but some companies have completely shut down their business in the region. Here are eight U.S.-listed stocks with direct or indirect exposure to the Ukraine conflict:
The stock market has experienced a ton of volatility as investors wrestle with what the geopolitical conflict means for the price of oil, the supply chain, inflation and more. Russian stocks have been hit particularly hard: The Russia-focused exchange-traded funds (ETFs) VanEck Russia ETF and iShares MSCI Russia ETF both plunged this week and are down around 70% for the year.
The Nasdaq and New York Stock Exchange both temporarily stopped trading in Russia-based companies earlier this week, and index provider MSCI signaled that it could cut Russian stocks and bonds from its indexes, Reuters reported. These actions came over concerns about how sanctions were destroying the liquidity of the Russian market.
But you also probably don't have to worry too much about Russian investments in those retirement funds. Russian stocks make up just 0.4% of target-date funds on average, according to Morningstar data. Russian bonds make up less than 0.1% of these funds.
Defense stocks were a notable outlier, though, with major weapons suppliers rallying after Vladimir Putin ordered an attack. Northrop Grumman rose by about 3%, while Lockheed Martin, Raytheon Technologies, and General Dynamics were up 2%.
