I like ETFs a lot also.

I tend to like value ones like: VBR, EFV, etc although there is some risk that the past will not repeat.

Many emerging market ETFs, as you note, have been working well recently. I have VWO and find it quite good though some individual countries are outperforming others. I don't make any claims about how the emerging markets will do in the future though.

I hear you about some of these "gurus", polarizz. I tried NYX (don't own it anymore) as Cramer recommended at found it to be a disaster although it has recovered somewhat recently. T.V. picks are very questionable. Some of them can work well (like Cramer's AAPL), however generally it seems to be merely a waste of time to rely on their advice for some secret.
