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

    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…
