As of March 31, 2011, the Index includes securities from the following 21 countries: Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, Czech Republic, Egypt, Hungary, India, Indonesia, South Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, Morocco, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Russia, South Africa, Taiwan, Thailand and Turkey.

- State Street's (STT) Global Advisors unit launched the SPDR MSCI EM Beyond BRIC ETF (EMBB) this morning to meet the ever growing investor interest in underplayed emerging markets.

- It's worth paying another 50 or 60 basis points in expenses for a good ETF product not tracking a vanilla index, says RiverFront Investment's Rod Smyth at a Barron's ETF roundtable. One favorite in emerging markets is PowerShares' FTSE RAFI Emerging Markets Portfolio (PXH) which tilts towards factors like book value and cash flow and offers bigger weighting to sectors like energy. Bullish on Japan, his pick is WisdomTree's Japan SmallCap Dividend Fund (DFJ). Another favorite is PowerShares' FTSE RAFI Developed Markets Ex-U.S. Portfolio (PXF).

- "Our problem is that the S&P is up this year about 25% on earnings that are up 3%. So we've got a market that is rising because of P/E expansion," 21-year GMO veteran Ben Inker tells Barron's (one recalls a similar warning from Guggenheim back in August).
- Inker argues that because P/E multiples are still expanding at a time when profit margins are "already as good as we've ever seen," the prospects for upside surprises to profit growth look "pretty dim" going forward.
- As for bonds, Inker characterizes the return on U.S. government debt as "horrible" and says corporate debt "is riskier than people are making it out to be, particularly the very low-rated stuff."
- Inker's picks for the current environment: TIPS, "high-quality" U.S. companies, and emerging-market stocks where reasonable valuations leave room for some upside.
- "High-quality" U.S. stocks mentioned include: JNJ, MCD, WMT, MSFT
- TIPS ETFs: TIP, VTIP, IPE, SCHP, LTPZ, STPZ, TIPZ, STIP, TPS, TDTT, TDTF, TIPX
- EM ETFs: EEM, VWO, EDC, EDZ, SCHE, IEMG, EEV, PIE, ADRE, EUM, EET, GMM, EEME, EMCR, DBEM, EWEM, FEM, EMLB, EMSA, EMFT, EMDR
- High-yield ETFs: HYG, JNK, HYS, HYLD, SJNK, PHB, SJB, ANGL, XOVR, UJB, QLTC
