On CAPS, all 20 of the members who have rated ECON believe the ETF will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier this week, one of those Fools, Seattleldg, succinctly summed up the ECON bull case for our community:

Emerging market stocks seem unloved these days and on sale. I like the focus on the emerging market consumer oriented companies of this ETF. This sector has HUGE growth potential as emerging economies steadily develop and create greater wealth for their populations. Take note that this ETF only includes companies based in emerging market countries. ... I see ECON as a complementary investment with other international companies in my portfolio and a way to gain more targeted exposure to this market.

The expense ratio is 0.85% (a bit high relative to other emerging market ETFs).

Owning exceptional ETFs is a sure-fire way to secure your financial future. Of course, despite a strong four-star rating, ECON may not be your top choice.
