Buy Global Stocks Locally

Posted by D4L | Tuesday, April 17, 2012 | | 0 comments »

Investors in search of better dividend yields than they can get in Canada or the United States now have a new hunting ground: emerging markets. Countries such as Brazil and China have traditionally been regarded as risky frontiers, best left to investors who are prepared to endure stomach-wrenching ups and downs in search of potential growth stars. "There is a certain attractiveness in the combination of yield and growth that exists in emerging markets," says Nicholas Smithie, a strategist with UBS Securities. "The dividend yield in emerging markets [between 3% and 3.5% for the MSCI index] is higher than the dividend yield in America, and higher than any government bond in the Western world."

The easiest way to buy emerging-market dividend stocks is through US-listed ETFs such as iShares Emerging Markets Dividend, SPDR S&P Emerging Markets Dividend, and WisdomTree Emerging Markets Equity Income (see below for tickers and descriptions). In Canada, there is also the Redwood Emerging Markets Dividend mutual fund.
