    Asian Stocks: 4 Great Funds for a Far East Surge

    We've all heard that diversification is good for a portfolio. Considering that the U.S. stock market is at record highs, and stocks are about as pricey as they get, investors may want to consider spreading around some of their risk. And Asian stocks might be the best place in the world for that right now. If you want to diversify outside the U.S. market, there's a problem: Most major markets don't look any safer than the U.S. Europe has been underperforming for literally years with no real sign of reversing that trend. Latin America has plenty of problems, not the least of which is the implosion of the Argentinian economy. Africa is a hotbed of unstable stock markets and geopolitical unrest. Fortunately, there are some opportunities in Asia - through domestically traded exchange-traded funds (ETFs) - where local markets are either holding firm or turning the corner into bull markets. Here's a look at four funds to buy to get exposure to Asian stocks and defray your risk a bit. SEE ALSO: Emerging-Markets Stocks: 10 Ways to Play the Next Bull Market

    Value to be Had With Asia ETFs

    Developed Asia and some related single-country ETFs, including the iShares MSCI Japan ETF (EWJ) , the largest Japan-related ETF on the market, are currently offering compelling discounts relative to other major developed markets. “As of the end of July, Japanese equities remain the cheapest equity market in the developed world.  The Topix Index (TPX) is trading at 1.8 times price-to-book (P/B), roughly half the level of the S&P 500. The current discount is close to the lowest since 2012, a period that preceded a three-year, 150% rally,” said BlackRock in a recent note.
