The Wall Street Journal recently published an article about Emerging Markets moving up. On Thursday's Market Foolery, Chris Hill and Motley Fool Funds analyst Tim Hanson bring up the past losses in emerging markets -- in 2011, 2012, and 2013. Yet, Chris and Tim look past these poor numbers, and look at the possibility that this could be the year that MSCI (NYSE:MSCI) finds a real win. Tim notes that April was a good month for emerging markets; but then Chris questions Tim about the article, and what more it can mean for investors.
Then, Tim and Chris dig into franchising in Indonesia by looking at Mitra Adiperkasa. Tim notes that the company has a phenomenal growth profile that is rarely seen in American and European markets. Tim explains that emerging markets will move forward as investors move into more countries and take advantage of companies like Mitra Adiperkasa.
