Emerging stock markets tend to perform best during times of currency turmoil. See the best six emerging markets for investing now.

eClub expert Michael Keppler looks at all foreign stock markets and compares every major market monthly looking at their current book to price, cash flow to price, earnings to price, average dividend yield, return on equity and cash flow return on equity compared to their average and relative vales and compares them to all other markets. Based on this research he determines which markets offer top value (buy candidates), low value (sell candidates) and which are neutral.

Based on this analysis he feels the best value emerging markets now are BRAZIL, COLOMBIA, CZECH REPUBLIC, KOREA, PHILIPPINES AND RUSSIA.
