Two Country ETFs Beating The S&P

July 13, 2012

A pair of single-country ETFs is excelling as the rest of the global economy lies crippled from a slowing China and eurozone debt troubles, according to an article on Forbes.

The iShares MSCI Singapore Index Fund (NYSEArca: EWS) and the iShares MSCI Mexico Investable Fund (NYSEArca: EWW) outperformed the S&P 500, up 11.5 percent and 13.6 percent, respectively, from June lows.

The strong performance of EWS and EWW may be a sign that global financial markets are bottoming out. This will become clearer after the release of China’s economic growth on Friday, the article reports. China ended up reporting a drop in growth in the second quarter to a 7.6 percent annualized rate compared with 8.1 percent in the first quarter.

However, buying these funds right now as their prices near technical-resistance may not be appropriate. Instead, investors should wait for favorable conditions over the next few weeks, according to the article.
