Pimco emerging markets bond fund

Brazilian Reais

Emerging market bonds are an attractive way to get a higher yield, but historically they have come with higher volatility and a high incidence of default. Most investors experience emerging market bonds as part of a bond fund that is diversified across several different countries. These include Russia, Brazil, Mexico, Turkey, South Korea, Indonesia, Colombia and the Philippines, among others.

There are many emerging market bond funds. Some are mutual funds that buy and sell constantly. Others are exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that simply buy and hold a portfolio of stocks.

Unlike stock funds, excellent bond funds often have a higher turnover ratio. When stock funds have a high turnover ratio, the added costs often drag down returns. But bonds have a higher spread when they are bought and sold. Every time a bond fund turns over, the fund sells its portfolio holdings for a profit and buys substitute bonds at a discount. The difference of the spread means profit for the shareholders.

Consider the PIMCO Emerging Markets Bond Fund (PEMDX/PEBIX) as an illustration. PEMDX or PEBIX has a turnover rate of 100%.

Aug. 19 (Bloomberg) -- Pacific Investment Management Co., which runs the world’s biggest bond fund, said the dollar will weaken as the swelling U.S. deficit erodes its status as a reserve currency.
The dollar will drop the most against emerging-market counterparts, Curtis A. Mewbourne, a Pimco portfolio manager, wrote in a report on the company’s Web site.
“Investors should consider whether it makes sense to take advantage of any periods of U.S. dollar strength to diversify their currency exposure,” Mewbourne wrote in his August Emerging Markets Watch report.
The Dollar Index, which tracks the greenback against a basket of currencies, has fallen 12 percent from this year’s high in March. China, the world’s largest holder of foreign- currency reserves, and Russia...
