I do the “ETF of the Week” for MarketWatch every Thursday on Chuck Jaffe’s MoneyLife Show where I highlight big movers and disappointments within the exchange traded fund market.

This week, I looked at the Market Vectors Emerging Markets High Yield Bond ETF (NYSEArca: HYEM). Considering the low yields in the developed world, investors may consider emerging market corporate bonds that diversify a portfolio with international exposure and provide robust yields. HYEM has a 30-day SEC yield of 7.4%, according to manager Van Eck. [Emerging Market Bond ETFs with Attractive Yields]
