Emerging-markets are on pace for a banner year. Whether further growth expectations are aligned to reality remains an open question.

The MSCI Emerging Market Index is up more than 14% so far this year as of this writing. Why the interest? Poor growth prospects in developed economies have compelled money managers to look elsewhere for better returns. The International Monetary Fund has cut its projections for global growth at 3.1% for this year and 3.4% for 2017--with much of the world's expansion driven by emerging-markets.
