Our Emerging Markets Equity team believes earnings acceleration—when a company’s EPS are growing at an accelerating rate—represents one of the most important indicators of a stock’s potential to increase in price. Correctly using earnings acceleration to forecast the extent of sustainable improvement may help generate superior investment returns. Employing that process in concert with analyzing and monitoring long-term secular trends can be applied to investing in emerging markets.
