    This is the Nokia downgrade all over again. Goldman Sachs stamped a "don't buy" on Nokia and downgraded the stock back some time ago. Goldman Sachs bought 63M shares of Nokia while telling its clients and the business world that NOK was a "don't buy."


    To say there are trust issues with GS and it ratings is an understatement.

    I dont believe GS is right on the money here. Market action since tapering clearly shows the "talked about" adverse impact is overblown. Because such fears have been clearly priced into for months..there is opportunity for snap back short covering rally in Emerging markets asset classes

    As a contrarian of course when I hear prognostications like this I feel inclined to do the opposite. When its GS giving me their prediction, I feel even stronger in a contrarian trade.

    Tricky generalization they're giving. The details contradict their own headline.


    ""moderate" tolerance for risk should cut exposure by a third - from 9% to 6%."
    "fast growth in EM from 2003-2007"


    3% drop on medium risk portfolios is hardly "getting out". Meanwhile, long term higher risk tolerant portfolios, they're lack of comment implies staying


    Who's in it for that superfast growth? It's diversity! And some decent growth.
