    Why The Pain Isn't Over Yet for Emerging Markets

    Emerging markets took a beating last year, and despite a recent respite, the pain likely isn't over. The MSCI Emerging Markets Index index, which tracks stocks in 24 emerging market economies, lost 14.6% in 2018 versus a loss of 4.4% for the S&P 500. Emerging markets (EM) include those economies that tend to be less developed than those in Western Europe such as Germany, and U.K. for instance, or the U.S. and Canada in North America.

    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.
