As dominant global stock markets continued to decline Friday, are emerging markets better places for investors to put their money? Experts interviewed on CNBC believe so.

Emerging Markets Are Attractive

Although economies in emerging markets are slowing down, Stefan Hofer, emerging markets strategist at Julius Baer still sees opportunities there. He tells CNBC where money can be made.

Investing in Indonesia

There are some very good mid- to long-term opportunities emerging in Indonesia, particularly in natural resources and infrastructure, says Gita Wirjawan, co-chairman of Ancora Capital.

Thailand Looks Attractive

Despite the political uncertainty plaguing Thailand, this market looks attractive to Mark Fuchs, CEO of Fuchs Capital Partners. He reveals how he is investing there.

Negative on Australian Stocks

Matt Martin, institutional sales trader at Wilson HTM is negative on Australian stocks as he thinks its economic outlook is going to deteriorate further.

Sorting the Bites from the Bits

The day of reckoning has arrived, says Diane Garnick, investment strategist at Invesco, where not every technology company is going to do well. She tells CNBC how to separate the wheat from the chaff.

"Hold" on Sony

Sony needs to speed up its restructuring process in order to turn the firm around, says Kota Ezawa, analyst at Nikko Citigroup, after it shocked markets with an operating loss forecast of $2.9 billion. He tells CNBC why he has a "hold" on Sony.
