(A Top Pick Feb 08/19, Down 0.4%) Trade wars with China was a reason to pick EM, as he didn't want to bet only on China. China's been a big factor in the drawdown. December - April is the optimal time. Feels that it will move higher once there's a trade deal, but he won't participate as it's against his seasonal mandate.

(A Top Pick March 15/17. Up 2%.) He was looking for a place to hide and didn’t want to recommend either a US or Canadian stock. The period of seasonal strength for this ETF is from around the end of January through to the end of April. Now is the time to take profits.

(This is in US$, but is also available in Cnd$ through ZEM-T, FDE-T and SHZ-T, which also offers a nice dividend yield.) Technically, the chart shows a nice upward trend, and today, after 2 PM we had a break out to a new high. The growth is coming from India, China, South Korea, Brazil, Taiwan. Seasonally, this runs from the middle of January right through to approximately the end of April.

An e-commerce pure play in India or this ETF? In India, there isn’t really a publicly listed company. There is a company called Flipkart that is essentially the Amazon of India. It is private and has a lot of notable investors globally. That segment of the commerce is growing very quickly, but it is still not profitable. There is a lot of subsidizing of their delivery costs and it is very competitive on pricing. It’s a little early days, and she would rather go to this indirectly. (See Top Picks.)

This has a lot of China exposure. Very liquid so you have a lot of ability to get in and out very quickly and it has a very liquid options market. The only way he would consider trading this now, given the volatility that we are seeing in China, is to buy it with the intention of writing options against it, because the option premiums are pretty decent and are very liquid.

(A Top Pick Jan 19/15. Up 8.43%.) This was very successful, but it was not hedged against currency so it could have been higher.

Seasonality happens not just in North America, but around the world. This one just completed a double bottom last week.

Emerging Market ETF’s? This is a name that he likes. In Canada there is a Canadian hedge version XEM-T. One thing to note is that it does hold a large percentage of South Korea, which he likes because it gives you both diversification and stabilization in a portfolio.

An ETF in emerging markets? The most widely owned would be this one. Feels that a lot of global allocators are moving back into emerging markets. For a higher dividend oriented, you could go for iShares Emrg Mkt Div (DVYE-N). (See Top Picks.)

Purchased a Call with a strike price of $36 and the timeline was for Jan/14. Currently he is down 18%. Do you think this will eventually go up? He has sold off a lot of his emerging-market stuff because of his fairly conservative client base. He would suggest that you take a look at how much is in your portfolio. He doesn’t see any huge bounce back right now for emerging markets or China. In other words, he won’t be going into this right now.

(A Top Pick Jan 26/12. Up 8.31%.) Likes emerging markets this year and expects there will definitely be some traction. China is probably going to come in at an 8% growth rate. India is coming online as well.

MSCI Emerging Market ETF. Brazil is up 11%, India is up 10% and (?) is up 5% so far this year. There are a couple of catalysts in emerging markets. Monetary policy is easing in certain areas. Inflation is coming down. China looks like it is going for a soft landing.

Emerging markets. Be aware that this trades in New York so you are in US currency. Very diversified globally. Somewhat technology oriented. P/E is 21.

(A Top Pick June 19/09. Up 24%.) The BRIC countries are tomorrow's economic powerhouses. Buy on weakness and could be considered a “Buy and Hold”.
