On CAPS, 97% of the 149 members who have rated DEM believe the ETF will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier this week, one of those Fools, Seattleldg, succinctly summed up the DEM bull case for our community:

Emerging market stocks seem unloved these days and on sale. I have been burned on several emerging market companies so buying an ETF with a broader exposure seems more prudent. The current 3.36% dividend yield is nice while we wait for world markets to improve. The expense ratio is 0.63% (in line with other similar emerging market ETFs).

Owning exceptional ETFs is a surefire way to secure your financial future. Of course, despite a strong four-star rating, DEM may not be your top choice.
