After years of underperformance, emerging market stocks are shining this year thanks to cheap money flows, pickup in economic growth in many parts of the developing world, rising commodity prices, impressive valuations and the Fed’s dovish outlook. However, a strong dollar and the prospect of rising interest rates remain major headwinds to these stocks.In particular, EEMV has proven beneficial for low risk-tolerant investors in times of market uncertainty given its superior risk adjusted returns and downside protection at the same time. Additionally, the fund’s smaller allocation to the securities keeps the portfolio balanced and prevents heavy concentration. As a result, the fund currently has a Zacks ETF Rank of 3 or ‘Hold’ rating with a Medium risk outlook.
