Emerging-markets stocks have had a rough time of it lately. The diversified emerging-markets Morningstar Category has been one of the worst-performing categories so far in 2018, with China region and Latin America stock (subsets of emerging markets) among the only categories to perform worse through mid-August. Yet these were among the best-performing categories in 2017, illustrating how volatile this section of the market can be.
