The Federal Reserve meets this weeks and expectations are in place for an interest rate cut. Among the income-generating assets that stand to benefit from lower U.S. interest rates are emerging markets bonds and the related exchange traded funds, such as the Invesco Emerging Markets Sovereign Debt ETF (NYSE: PCY). PCY, which tracks the DBIQ Emerging Market USD Liquid Balanced Index and holds dollar-denominated emerging markets debt, is up 11.39% this year.

Rising external financing costs and current account deficits are among the factors plaguing emerging markets debt this year, pressuring exchange traded funds such as the iShares J.P. Morgan USD Emerging Markets Bond ETF (EMB) and the PowerShares Emerging Markets Sovereign Debt Portfolio (PCY) along the way. Some analysts and market observers believe the scenarios confounding emerging markets bonds this year could linger into 2019. “The impact of tighter US monetary policy, a strengthening dollar, and risks to global trade and growth will continue to be felt in 2019,” said Fitch Ratings in a note out Monday.
A strong dollar coupled with a spate of surprising interest rate hikes in some developing markets are among the factors punishing emerging markets debt this year, pressuring exchange traded funds such as the iShares J.P. Morgan USD Emerging Markets Bond ETF (EMB) and the PowerShares Emerging Markets Sovereign Debt Portfolio (PCY) in the process. The Federal Reserve began its current tightening cycle in 2015 and while the first few rate hikes did not pinch emerging markets debt all that much, that scenario is changing in a big way this year. With respect to value compared to price, many of these ETFs from abroad present a profitable opportunity that can be realized, especially if China and the U.S. eventually ameliorate their trade differences by year’s end.
The emerging markets have been pummeled this year, but after the selling, EM debt and bond-related ETFs appear attractive for their level of risk. "Given the state of the world with strong U.S. growth and contained inflation globally, it's hard to imagine that emerging markets would suffer so much this year," Pablo Goldberg, a senior fixed-income strategist with BlackRock, told CNBC. After the pullback in emerging assets, the spread of average EM bond yields over comparable duration U.S. Treasuries have significantly widened, with the average yield on the JP Morgan Emerging Markets Bond index up to 5% last week.
The performance of emerging markets exchanged-traded funds (ETFs) have been marred by the trade wars between the U.S and China, such as the Vanguard FTSE Emerging Markets ETF (VWO) --down 7.67% YTD, iShares Core MSCI Emerging Markets ETF (IEMG) --down 7.3% YTD and iShares MSCI Emerging Markets ETF (EEM) --down 7.78% YTD. “There are huge opportunities for fixed income in all global regions at the moment, particularly in Asia,” said Michael Paulus, Managing Director at OpenDoor Securities.
