    • "Hazard ahead: The emerging market credit cycle has turned down," is the title of a recent JPMorgan report, arguing credit markets will tighten as the Fed boosts rates.
    • A shoe not yet dropped, says the team, is that debt to GDP ratios are not decreasing.
    • "Remember that a lot of the credit growth in emerging markets is no more than the flip side of easy money in developed markets," and as the Fed normalizes, this can reverse, though Europe and Japan keeping their feet on the gas pedal should mitigate the turn.
    • The ratio of broad emerging market nonfinancial private credit to GDP hit 128% of GDP in Q1, up 51 percentage points from 2007. Exclude China, and the numbers are not nearly as gaudy, but still frothy, and the moves resemble those from that of developed markets in the years leading up to the global financial crisis.

    • Back in 1988, net capital market outflows were $9B, and they've been positive ever since. This year, according to the Institute of International Finance, net outflows are set to return to the tune of a whopping $540B.
    • Meanwhile Federated Investors portfolio manager Ruggero de'Rossi thinks now is the time to buy the dip in emerging market government bonds. The yield spread between sovereign EM debt and comparable U.S. Treasury paper has widened to 420 basis points from a recent low of 250 bps. He likes the risk/reward across a diverse array of EM countries. He's not so bullish on EM corporate debt, however, as many companies have not fully hedged exchange rate exposures.

    • Carlos Hardenberg will replace longtime emerging markets bull Mark Mobius as manager of Franklin Templeton's (NYSE:BEN) $2.9B Emerging Markets Trust, effective October 1. Mobius has run the fund for about 25 years.
    • Mobius will remain chairman of the Templeton Emerging Markets Group, which has $39B in assets.
    • The scorecard isn't reading pretty this year: The Templeton Emerging Market Income Fund (NYSE:TEI) is lower by 4%, and the Templeton Emerging Market ETF (NYSE:EMF) is down 8.7%. Vanguard's FTSE Emerging Markets ETF (NYSEARCA:VWO) is flat YTD. Eleven of the 13 largest funds managed by Mobius have underperformed benchmarks over the past five years.
