Here's a contrarian play for June: An ETF combining junk bonds and emerging markets. The iShares EM High Yield Bond Fund (EMHY) is off 9% over the past month, eliminating all gains (not including dividends) since inception 14 months ago. Interestingly, the fund - which has garnered an impressive $248.5M AUM - has seen no outflows since the start of June. PCY - which holds EM sovereign debt - has actually performed worse than the EM junk bond fund during the downturn.
