Why is there a board for an ETF?

"Hey, great ETF there. What's its name?"

Well, I decided it isn't such a bad idea...so here goes.

Top 10 Holdings from Yahoo!

America Movil S.A. de C.V	N/A	2.03
CHUNGHWA TLCM ADS	        CHT	1.68
KOOKMIN BK ADS NEW	         KB	3.67
KOREA ELECTRIC PW CP	        KEP	2.14
Lukoil ADR	                N/A	2.71
POSCO	                        PK      2.94
Samsung Electnc GDR 144A	N/A	5.92
SILICONWARE PR ADS	       SPIL	1.82
TAIWAN SEMICOND ADS	        TSM	3.59
UNITED MICROELECTRON	        UMC	2.15

I guess the top holding is Samsung. Which is kind of strange...for an emerging markets ETF.

Then there's Lukoil if you can stomach it. Mr. Putin is fast becoming the next Russian Czar...Yeah, you heard it here first ;)

Taiwan Semiconductor? Siliconware? -> 5% Semiconductor schtuff? Meh.

Kookmin! Yay! A bank! Those things always manage to make money...somehow...

Got the telephone companies.. Chungwa and America Movil...

At least its..diversified...

I'm tired. I'm going to bed.

Why is everyone crazy about these ETF majigees?
