If you're looking for a starting point for some ETF investment research, you MAY find some value to this list.

A low Price/Earnings ratio might mean a value stock or a value trap. Due dilligence is required before investing in any of the ETFs mentioned in this article.

At the bottom of the page, you will find a table with 12 ETFs that currently - as of Dec 2010 - are trading at a low PE multiple.

At a glance, you can see that most of them are trouble markets or new and unsure markets. We can see a number of European bank ETFS, some emerging markets and frontier markets and some tougher, older telecom stocks. Keep in mind that these ratios may not be accurate. They were gleaned from a click screen.

These ETFs might be a good launching point for further investigation. As a contrarian investor, I find there to be some nice looking opportunities here that warrant further research.
