Emerging market stocks will outperform U.S. equities when another bull market comes, noted bear Marc Faber contended Tuesday. But Faber sees one problem — he believes markets will not enjoy another bull run in his lifetime.
Still, the Gloom, Boom & Doom Report publisher sees a potential recovery for some emerging market economies, particularly Russia and Brazil, which have endured a recent slowdown.
"There are some that are extremely depressed that could have large rebound potential," Faber said during a Tuesday evening panel discussion at the ETF.com Inside ETFs conference in Hollywood, Florida.
Stock prices have broadly fallen worldwide this year, with lower commodities prices and fears of a global slowdown contributing to investor concerns. Economies dependent on natural resources have been hit particularly hard. Brazil and Russia, once stars of the emerging world, have been damaged by oil as well as political issues.
While Faber has made a name on pessimism, he contended that bright spots for potential growth still exist in emerging markets. He pointed to Cambodia and Vietnam, among other Asian economies.
