‘Too early’ for emerging markets: Faber

Emerging markets could see a rebound but are headed lower overall, Marc Faber of the Gloom Boom & Doom Report said Friday.

"There has been a huge outperformance of the U.S. vis-à-vis emerging markets over the last, say, 18 months, an outperformance of roughly 30 percent," he said. "But I would say this is too early. I think emerging markets may rebound somewhat, but I think in general they will head lower."

On CNBC's "Fast Money," Faber added that there would likely be a rebound in long-term U.S. Treasury bonds.

Faber also expanded on comments he had made Thursday on "Futures Now" that stocks would be 20 percent lower by the end of 2013.

"I don't consider that a crash," he said. "I consider a crash a 90 percent decline. That is not likely to happen because the Fed will continue to print money."

That would likely lead stocks to continue their climb in the near-term, he added.

"I think they're rallying because some investors are beginning to realize that will all the money printing that is going on, commodities may be bottom out soon and that assets may be more desirable to own than paper, paper meaning bonds and stocks," Faber said.

But he added a caveat.

"What I mean is basically the money printing distorts everything, and there's a huge misallocation of capital whereby most of the capital doesn't flow to the ordinary people, to the middle class, to the working class," he said. "It flows essentially to the people closest to the money printing," benefiting the likes of banks and hedge funds.
