Emerging Markets Dividend ETF

Of course talking about market sectors, high dividends are no market sector at all, but it is a very interesting Emerging Markets ETF and I had to put it somewhere. So here it is. The emerging markets party is behind us so buying blindfolded is not a wise idea anymore (if ever it was).  

That being said, there still are some very nice stocks from sound and solid companies within emerging markets available. Being able to pay out higher than average dividends most certainly is a sign of strength. These are the same companies that could profit from a growing economy.
