Interested in adding some exposure to emerging markets? We ran a screen with this idea in mind.

We began by screening for US-traded stocks of companies based in the BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India, and China) for those with high growth, with 5-year projected EPS growth above 15%.

We then screened for those with bullish sentiment from institutional investors, with significant net institutional purchases over the last quarter representing at least 5% of share float. This indicates that institutional investors such as hedge fund managers and mutual fund managers expect these names to outperform into the future.
