Five reasons emerging-markets stocks could outperform U.S. stocks for several years

While the S&P 500 Index and the Dow Jones Industrial Average continue to charge higher, emerging markets (EM) have slumped.

EM is down about 3% from February highs, judging by the moves in the iShares MSCI Emerging Markets EEM, +0.93% Vanguard FTSE Emerging Markets Index Fund VWO, +1.09% and the iShares Latin America 40 ILF, +0.14% exchange traded funds.

Is this a confirmation that EM skeptics like MarketWatch’s Howard Gold are right, after all? Or is this a chance to buy an asset class that will outperform U.S. stocks over the next few years.
