A Quick Glance at Emerging Market Valuations:

|Includes: EDC, iShares MSCI Emerging Markets ETF (EEM), VWO

Adding to our bullish case in Emerging Markets, valuations seem to back our thesis showing evidence for sustainable growth in the first half of 2010. On a Forward Price/Earnings basis, Emerging Markets finished 2009 with a Forward P/E of 12.7, roughly 8% below their long term average of 13.78 and nearly 50% below the all time high of 25.5 (in the summer of 1988 just before the Asian Crisis). A few ETFs that can add Emerging Market exposure to any portfolio include the iShares MSCI Emerging Market Index (NYSEARCA:EEM), the Vanguard Emerging Markets ETF (NYSEARCA:VWO), & for a riskier play, the Direxion Emerging Markets Bull 3x Leverage (NYSEARCA:EDC).
