Emerging Markets Soaring

The Latin America 40 Index (ILF)has been a top performer this year turning in a 32.9% year to date gain. ILF has soared 44% over the past 10 weeks more than making up for the year's early losses.

The MSCI Pacific (less Japan) ETF, soared 12.2% this week, helping this index ETF gain more than 18% on the year.

Basic Materials Score Big

With only a few exceptions, Basic Material stocks have rallied hard in anticipation of economic recovery.

Leading the way are oil service stocks, in particular, Transocean, Ltd., which is up nearly 60% on the year. RIG was one of our Trendsetter buy/write picks at the beginning of the year.
