    Good News Is Priced in, but Taiwan ETFs Can Climb Higher

    The iShares MSCI Taiwan ETF (EWT) and the Franklin FTSE Taiwan ETF (FLTW) recently rallied following President Tsai Ing-wen's convincing reelection bid and while some market observers believe plenty of good news is priced into equities in the tech-heavy emerging market, they aren't writing off more upside for stocks this year. Taiwan’s markets could extend their rally if past moves after an election are any indication. Furthermore, the planned signing of an initial trade accord between China and the U.S. is also expected to further diminish global trade fears and add to Taiwan’s momentum.

    A Steady Emerging Market Investors Aren’t Impressed With

    Taiwanese stock are often among the least volatile in the emerging markets space and the iShares MSCI Taiwan ETF (EWT) is up 13% year-to-date, but the global investors don't appear enthusiastic about the country's equity market. To some extent, Taiwan has been caught in the middle of the US/China trade spat, but EWT's performance indicates Taiwan is flexing its independence rather than siding with China as China would prefer. While Chinese President Xi Jinping supports the notion that China and Taiwan must stand together unified, the U.S., on the other hand, supports the country’s efforts to stay independent.

    Investors Can Look to “EWT” Taiwan ETF as an Option Amid Trade Wars

    The U.S.-China trade impasse could put Taiwan into the forefront, according to Zhiqun Zhu, a professor of political science and international relations at Bucknell University. Zhu said Taiwan could be used as a major "chess piece" for the U.S. in ongoing trade negotiations, which could put the iShares MSCI Taiwan ETF (EWT) in play. “Taiwan’s value to the U.S. will only increase as tensions between the U.S. and China escalate,” Zhu told CNBC.
