Frontier-market stocks seen rising after lost decade

Frontier markets are poised to rise this year as they benefit from lower valuations and a “reasonably solid” economic outlook, according to Andrew Howell, a Citigroup Inc. equity strategist. 
  • Howell provided the view in a report released Wednesday. Any advance might be well received because these stocks have been through what can be considered a lost decade. The MSCI Frontier Markets Index rose just 9.5 percent from 2009 through 2018. 
  • During the same period, the MSCI Emerging Markets Index added 70 percent and the MSCI World Index of developed markets climbed 112 percent.

  1. Would like to see your take on specific emerging markets. Some of them are strong performers this year. Thanks, Jake.
