All You Need to Know About Emerging Markets

- At the end of 2013, emerging market stocks had a 12-month dividend yield of 2.7%. There have only been eight calendar years that began with a higher yield and the average return over those eight years was 46%.
- From 2000-2010. The annualized return on the MSCI Emerging Markets index was 10.9%, developed markets did just 1.3%.
- Going back to 1900, three countries are still “emerging” 114 years later: China, Russia and South Africa.
- From 1945-1949, Japanese equities lost almost 98% of their value, in US dollar terms.
- Since 1950, emerging market equities delivered annualized gains of 12.5%, versus 10.8% for developed markets.
- The ratio of emerging/developed market volatility was 1.9 in 1980 and has since fallen to 1.1, in other words emerging market stocks are now just 10% more volatile than developed market stocks.
- The average correlation for the 5 years ending in 1980 between emerging markets and developed markets indices for a U.S. investor was .57, by the end of 2013 that has risen to .88.

- One-third of revenues from the MSCI All-Country World Index come from emerging markets, however only ~10% of the index is comprised of emerging market stocks!

- Value as a factor has worked better than momentum in emerging markets since 2000.
- Thirty years ago, emerging markets made up 1% of the world equity market cap and 18% of world GDP, today they are ~10% of the investable universe and are 33% of world GDP.
- Emerging markets have ~55% share of the global population.
- Since 1995, share issuance has accounted for the majority of market-cap growth for emerging markets, not price appreciation.
- Cumulative dividend growth for the last 3 years: Developed market- 32.9%; Emerging market- 67.9%.
