FactSet Taking Risk Blog: Introducing Betamax: A new measure of ...
Risk managers are recognizing the importance of correlation, but there are precious few quantitative tools around to address correlation risk. While the adage that "during a sharp market correction, correlations go to one" is widely repeated, this is usually a qualitative statement rarely accompanied by any real quantitative measure. In this post, I will introduce a new quantitative measure of covariance stationarity (also known as weak form stationarity), which is an important topic that is generally misunderstood. In a finance context, covariance stationarity simply means that the covariance (or, alternatively, ... market research, surveys and trends
The Ideas Report For Serious Investors: Why Monkeys Outperform ...
Occasionally, a bored business publication, goes to the zoo, rents a monkey and pits him or her against a mutual fund manager.  Lo and behold the monkey who doesn't know a beta from a bunghole beats a significant majority of the active managers.  Barron's should probably create a yearly Monkey Roundtable . These Journalists must be pretty good monkey pickers and should probably start a MFoF (Monkey Fund of Funds) charging 2% and 20%.  We are the Third Chimpanzee and it seems as if evolution must have robbed us of our stock picking skills, but boy can we pick monkeys. So what is going on?  Charlie ... market research, surveys and trends

Paper - Portfolio Optimizers: The Road to Financial Security or ...
Recently Charles Schwab aired an advertisement that portrayed a couple in their fifties explaining why they hired an investment advisor. Their reasoning was simple. Although investing is important, it is also boring and confusing. Since life is already sufficiently hectic, there is no reason to spend precious time learning about this dismal topic when you can hire a professional to do it for you. That large numbers of participants invest blindly and need help in determining their asset allocations is widely accepted. A recent EBRI study 1 found that 45% of all ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Portfolio Optimization and the Cost of Trading: The Journal of ...
This article illustrates the effects of incorporating transaction cost estimates into mean-variance portfolio construction. It begins with an examination of single-period 130/30 portfolios and a two-year monthly rebalancing exercise for a market-neutral strategy, both for the Russell 2000 Value universe. Accounting for trading costs ex ante delivers superior net returns, broader diversification, lower turnover, and a portfolio robust to noisy alpha signals, relative to standard mean-variance stock selection and portfolio construction. Global portfolios then are analyzed, for three time periods preceding and spanning the current ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Principles Of Diversification
It has been said that diversification is the secret sauce of asset allocation. Diversification seems so obvious and so easy--" Don't put all your eggs in one basket ." Investment professionals suggest that you invest in a portfolio of non-correlated assets, which in simple terms refers to securities that generally do not change in price and direction at the same time. The idea here is that owning a portfolio of non-correlated assets allows an investor to reduce volatility and achieve better long-term risk-adjusted performance. In the first two segments of this series on asset allocation we established that ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

I am inclined to quote the book 'First Break All the Rules'. The book deals with an example on comparing the performance of the best and the least performing sales persons. It comes out with the observations that there are a million reasons for someone not to succeed and handful for one to succeed. It further says that the problems and fears of both the top and bottom performer are sometimes the same like 'being rejected'. Hence, if someone has to avoid each of these millions to get to the right things, it would be an almost impossible task. What is a better strategy is to look at the right things to do and ...

Nick, whilst we're waiting to see if anyone comments, why don't you post up an overview of the 2 events as described on the websites for the respective events? I've never attended either event. From comments I've read and from an overview of the events at DNJournal the events appear geared towards the "serious domainer", that is, domainers with portfolios in the 1000s (or smaller if you have some very high traffic domains with quality traffic - Sex.com, Mortgage.com, etc.) IF you plan to get into the game and have a $$$,$$$+/- budget it would also make sense to attend. The cost of the events look to make ...
