Emerging market stocks were all the rage up until the middle of last year. Stocks from Brazil, India, Russia and China ((BRICs)) were gobbled up by investors like there was no tomorrow. However the credit crunch has hit the emerging markets harder than developed markets over the past year. In fact the US markets performed better than European and emerging markets.

In 2009 some folks believe that the developing countries like China, Brazil, India, Turkey, South Africa, etc. will lead us out of the mess. However some argue that since the credit crunch started in the US, the US economy has to first improve before other markets can. In the end nobody knows for sure how this will play out.

Hundreds of emerging market stocks trade in the US. In addition, there are many ETFs, Mutual Funds and CEFs that track these markets. One way to identify the top companies in the developing markets is to analyze an index related to that market. In order to identify the top 100 ADRs for this market, I list below components of the JPMorgan Depositary Receipt (DR) Emerging Markets 100 Index.

JPMorgan Depositary Receipt (DR) Emerging Markets 100 Index:

“is a market capitalization-weighted index designed to track the performance of 100 of the largest and most liquid Exchange-listed Depositary Receipt securities from countries classified as emerging markets.”
