will the sharemarket rise in 2009 ?

All that cheering on Wall Street is for a plan to use rubber cement and duct tape to patch some big holes in the financial system. Skepticism is in order.Investors in 2008 have ridden about a 35 per cent plunge in the benchmark S&P/ASX200 Index and around a 37.5 per cent slump in the broader All Ordinaries, in a year marked by large corporate collapses and unprecedented fluctuations in financial markets.THE Australian stock market will offer investors the best buying opportunity in a generation in 2009, after the bourse suffered its the biggest annual decline ever in 2008.Australia's main share indices are expected to rebound by up to 30 per cent in the second half of 2009, some analysts say, making up some of the losses in 2008, as the yields on stocks eclipse those offered by cash or bonds and equity investors anticipate an economic recovery.

When you ignore foreign markets, you miss out on great growth. Emerging economies such as Brazil, Russia, India, and China have seen average annual growth of more than 8% a year, compared to 3% and slowing for the U.S. Like small-cap stocks, emerging markets are exciting precisely because they have so much room to grow before they become saturated, developed markets like the one we live in.Many investors got scared off, though, when both developed and emerging foreign markets followed our market into a sharp decline this year. But as my colleague Tim Hanson pointed out, emerging markets have been oversold -- and they're currently priced as though they'll lag the U.S. going forward, despite the fact that emerging economies are expected to outperform the U.S. and its developed counterparts for years to come.In other words, right now you can buy the huge opportunities represented by emerging markets like India and China ... for pennies on the dollar.
