Brazil Economy (Bullish)

Need a reason to buy the iShares MSCI Emerging Markets Indx (ETF) (NYSE:EEM) which has moved up 64% in 2009 or the Claymore/BNY Mellon BRIC ETF (NYSE:EEB)?  How about UBS head of Global Equity Strategy Jeffrey Palma who says "emerging markets are really the only place to be."

Emerging Markets Aren't a Bubble (EEM)

China Stocks (Bullish)

This according to Felix Salmon at SeekingAlpha.com - So although there’s bound to be some sort of correction in Brazil and other emerging markets sooner or later, that doesn’t mean they’re currently in a bubble.
