NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- When adding foreign exposure or emerging market exposure to a diversified equity portfolio, certain sectors are easier than others. The energy sector is relatively easy because just about every country has a large, publicly traded oil company -- their own Exxon Mobil (XOM) so to speak.The ETF EG Shares Energy GEMS (OGEM) targets these emerging market stocks in the energy sector. The fund is reasonably broad at the country level although it is heavily weighted to Russia at 30% of the fund. That is followed by China at 18%, India 15%, surprisingly Thailand is next at 8% and Brazil at 7% with South Africa, Poland, Chile, Colombia and Hungary all getting smaller weightings.
