This has been a great year for U.S. equities, if the S&P 500 and its huge 2013 gains are any indication. However, political turmoil seems more norm than not, and tapering — whenever it comes — will almost certainly induce a market correction. So where should investors go to find solid stock returns?
Emerging market ETFs.
Picking single stocks in emerging markets is as difficult as it is risky — you have to understand the risks and opportunities of whole countries, in addition to the usual stock movement and balance sheets. You’re much better off owning an emerging market ETF. You get plenty of exposure to the market, without the risk of holding a single stock.
With that in mind, here are four of the best emerging market ETF picks: A China ETF, an India ETF, and two other ETFs that track broad indices like the MSCI Emerging Markets Index.
