Middle East markets, including Qatar and United Arab Emirates, have again been solid this year and the WisdomTree Middle East Dividend Fund (NasdaqGS: GULF) has been flat over the past week. Still, investors cannot get used to Qatar and UAE bolstering FM because those markets depart for the MSCI Emerging Markets Index in the second quarter.

That means Nigeria and possibly Argentina, Kenya and Pakistan will become larger pieces of FM’s puzzle.
