We investigate optimal buy-and-hold strategies for terminal wealth problems in a multi-period framework. As terminal wealth is a sum of dependent random variables, each of these variables corresponding to an amount of capital that has been invested in a particular asset at a particular date, we first consider approximations that reduce the multivariate randomness to univariate randomness. Next, these approximations are used to determine buy-and-hold strategies that optimize, for a given probability level, the Value at Risk and the Conditional Left Tail Expectation of the distribution function of final wealth.

One performance system may hold the key to beating buy-and-hold investing. The 10-month Moving Average Crossover (MAC) system is an investment strategy that beats buy-and-hold in absolute performance and risk-adjusted return, writes Theodore Wong for Advisor Perspectives .

Wong compared the performance of MAC and buy-and-hold strategies using Compound Annual Growth ... market research, surveys and trends

Google IPO - Difficult to cash in
He does a pseudo-scientific probability calculation and comes up with the finding, "you have a 0.029 percent chance of beating an index fund this year in a Google IPO." I think Hulbert even misses one additional risk - demand-driven overpricing of Google IPO shares. He assumes a normal risk of an IPO trading below issue price by the end of the year. In Google's case, it's got to be VERY tempting to price the issue even higher than a normally calculated valuation to take advantage of demand for the shares; unless they restrain themselves, they run the risk of an even larger post-euphoria decline. Perhaps this is one ...
