Mobius Says QE3 ‘Very Good’ for Emerging-Market Equities

Emerging market stocks would benefit from the cash injection created by a third round of U.S. asset purchases, with China, Russia and Taiwan looking “attractive,” Templeton Asset Management’s Mark Mobius said.

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke laid the groundwork last week for a third round of so-called quantitative easing, or QE3, saying that the Fed is prepared for further “accommodation.” The central bank, which bought $2.3 trillion of debt as part of QE1 and QE2, also reiterated a commitment to keep rates low until at least 2014.
