Just to get our facts straight before someone rushes out to buy VWO based on this string, these are total return numbers from Morningstar:

VWO
1 month: -4.12%
3 month: 3.30%
1 year: -9.80%
3 year: 18.53

ACWI
1 month: -2.51%
3 month: 5.56%
1 year: -1.12%
3 year: 16.05%

SPY
1 month: -1.20%
3 month: 8.30%
1 year: 7.82%
3 year: 18.89%

(Periods greater than 1 year are annualized)

VWO hasn't done so great. Of course, that is just because developing market stocks in general haven't done great. As Nathan points out, that does not predict anything about the future.
