This ETF of emerging market stocks has the following advantages IMHO:1) Trades at a composite p/e ratio of only 13x.2) Provides diversifiction away from US $.3) Is exposed heavily to telcom (23% of portfolio); a recent article in the Economist stated that every 10% of a developing country's population with a mobile phone provides 0.8% of incremental GDP growth.4) Pays a healthy dividends yield - around 3% (somewhat unusual for emerging market funds - the weighted dividend approach is the signature of fund manager Wisdom Tree).5) Is less exposed to China - note, I like China, it's just that I already have exposure to the country, so this is a way to play emerging markets without undue country concentration (VWO is nearly 20% in China compared to roughly 5% here).
