NEW YORK (ETF Expert) --Many tag the first 10 years of the 21st century as a "lost decade" for stocks. Whether you look at 2000-2009 or 2001-2010, U.S. equities did indeed underperform a wide variety of assets.For example, emerging market stocks were one of the more noticeable beneficiaries. Over the previous 10 years (7/24/2003-7/23/2012), the iShares MSCI Emerging Market Fund ( EEM) massively outperformed the SPDR Select S&P 500 ( SPY).
