The rapid rise of emerging markets pre 2008 also coincided with an era of far less ADRs, ETFs and brokerage flexibility in acquiring pink sheets. Newsletters like SA and HG excelled even during pre 2008 era with US stocks. So the idea that a market needs to perform well to do good in individual stocks is not exactly convincing.

That's not what I said.

What I said is you have two universes of stocks and they're pretty much exclusive without overlap. So comparing the performance from one group with the other group does not make sense.

The reason I favor etfs is due to etfs like vwo doing better than GG scorecard. Vwo is hardly concentrated in one or two firms. Country specific etfs such as ewy eido have done quite well too.

I didn't say one or two I said 10-25.
