    China Exposure is a Risk for Big Emerging Markets ETFs

    Diversified emerging markets ETFs are supposed to be, well, diversified, but many of these funds feature some concentration risk, particularly at the geographic level. For example, two of the category's most popular funds, the iShares Core MSCI Emerging Markets ETF (IEMG) and the Vanguard FTSE Emerging Markets ETF (VWO) feature significant China exposure. IEMG's China weight is 28.47%, or more than double the weight assigned to its second-largest geographic weight.

    How Ray Dalio Beat the Market and Peers in 2018

    How Ray Dalio Beat the Market and Peers in 2018 (Continued from Prior Part) ## Not “long” any particular asset So, what is it exactly that helped Ray Dalio’s Bridgewater Associates beat the market and peers in 2018? The answer probably lies in the way the fund is designed. Most of the market suffered huge losses in the last quarter of 2018 as equities fell. Bridgewater, however, was having its typical year due to its design, wherein it isn’t usually long on any particular asset. ## Bridgewater’s positioning In a telephone interview with Reuters in December, Greg Johnson, co-chief investment officer of Bridgewater Associates, mentioned, “We are bearish on equities but it’s a part of a diversified set of conditions across asset classes. That process has allowed us to have our alpha be uncorrelated over time to equity markets.” He added, “We do equally well as equity markets go up or equity markets go down. So, we are having a normal year this year – as good as our typical year – and that is a function of the design of our alpha … we don’t have any tendency to be long any particular asset.” ## Bridgewater’s holdings A lot of hedge fund managers got burned, as they had outsized positions in a few stocks and a lot of them had it in the over-owned tech (QQQ) space. Dalio’s holdings are mostly concentrated in a small number of positions with most of its largest stakes in ETFs. Its top ten holdings form 71% of its total portfolio. At the end of Q3 2018, its five largest holdings were: * the SPDR S&P 500 Trust ETF (SPY): 23.6% * the Vanguard FTSE Emerging Markets ETF (VWO): 21.6% * the iShares Core MSCI Emerging Markets ETF (IEMG): 6.1% * the SPDR Gold Shares ETF (GLD): 4.6% * the iShares MSCI Emerging Markets ETF (EEM): 3.5% Apart from this, Dalio’s strategy of having a “strategic asset allocation mix,” or having a neutral portfolio during an overall period and then figuring out where there is alpha, could also have helped Dalio beat the market.

    Tom Lydon on CNBC: Rate Decision is Key for Emerging Markets

    Monday's trading session began with more sell-offs in U.S. equities with the Dow Jones Industrial Average losing over 500 points as a key rate decision by the Federal Reserve looms, which could impact emerging markets exchange-traded funds (ETFs). The capital markets are widely expecting a fourth and final rate hike to cap off 2018 with algorithms like the CME Group's FedWatch tool expecting a 69.7 percent chance of a rate hike on Wednesday. With rate hikes taking a toll on emerging markets ETFs, it could be the trigger event these funds need to shake out of their 2018 doldrums if the rates remain unchanged or Fed Chair Jerome Powell hints that 2019 will see less rate hikes.

    Tom Lydon on Fox: Emerging Markets Investors Unfazed by Volatility

    U.S. equities began the week with more volatility reigning as the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell over 400 points to start Monday's trading session, but as investors become accustomed to this new normal, ETF Trends Publisher Tom Lydon is keen to notice one particular trend--the continuous flow of capital into emerging markets. The capital markets got a reprieve from the ongoing trade wars between the United States and China as U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese president Xi Jinping agreed to cease fire on their tariff-for-tariff battle last week. As part of the agreement, both nations agreed to withhold imposing further tariffs on each other for 90 days while they work out a firm, ironclad deal to start 2019. Despite more global news, such as a delayed Brexit vote in Parliament, bringing down U.S. equities, emerging markets investors remain unfazed during Monday's session.
