  • Sports betting hedge fund

    Sports betting hedge fund

    Sports bets offer reliable arbitrages and frequent mispricings. Sports results do NOT correlate with economic factors, unlike stocks, bonds, commodities and currencies. Diversify PROPERLY with new sources of return. Most people gamble on stocks or sp…

  • Asset allocation

    Asset allocation

    Asset allocation does NOT drive portfolio returns. The "experts" are WRONG. It's simple to prove for all goals, market scenarios and risk tolerances, investors should NEVER asset allocate. The facts are clear: every portfolio needs to be 100% investe…

  • Warren Buffett fund

    Warren Buffett fund

    One counterexample, yes ONE, is sufficient to destroy the dangerous passive fad and ridicule the index fund zealots. Don't trust dumb lists of non-analyzed stocks sold as "low fee", high cost, no skill, zero work index funds. Past returns DO predict…

  • Hedge Fund Test

    Hedge Fund Test

    Hedge Fund Test? The HFT credential separates rare alpha stars from hordes of CFA beta bandits. Thousands get the far too easy CFA each year but only 8 have attained the HFT this century. It takes rare ability and minimum 50,000 hours short/long inve…

  • Data science is money

    Data science is money

    Time is not money. Technology is money. Information is money. Technology applied to information - data science - is money squared. The best way to predict the future is to invest in it. The only certainty is change. Good investors are inventing bette…

  • Portable alpha?

    Portable alpha?

    Portable alpha? Why "port" NEW sources of return onto OLD sources of return? In down markets any positive alpha gets swamped by negative beta factors. It also diverts attention from what investors really need: consistent absolute returns from a blend…

  • Top data scientist

    Top data scientist

    Who is the world's best investor? Who ran the top performing hedge fund? When do past returns predict future performance? Defining "best" as highest risk adjusted alpha after deducting all style premia and beta factors, the greatest ever hedge fund m…

  • Emerging markets

    Emerging markets

    Highest stock market returns will come from: NOT WHERE YOU LIVE. National bias and portfolio patriotism costs investors so much. Always underweight or avoid investing in your "home" country. You have enough exposure just living there. World's top pe…

  • Passive index fad

    Passive index fad

    Passive fad will end badly. Manias ALWAYS do. Dumb beta index funds are just HIGH COST, HIGH RISK, low frequency trading strategies. Do you really think the stock pickers that ACTIVELY manage the S&P 1500 or Russell 2000 are the best? Why pay outrage…

  • Short sell passive

    Short sell passive

    All speculative fads end badly. Short sell passive beta, get long active alpha. Only for amateurs and suckers. No professional invests a cent in passive. NONE. NO analysis and NO risk management. Passive fails in ALL activities over the long term. Ya…
