Firstly apologies for the recent lack of posts, I've been enjoying a sojourn visiting some of my family in New Zealand. I've recently been reading Louis Navellier's 'Little Book that makes you rich' subtitled "a proven market beating formula for growth investing". I'm generally skeptical of the benefits of growth investing. All too often growth investing simply seems to be a cover for buying the latest fad or fashion in the investing world. So when I saw a book purporting to offer a numbers based approach (what I have called evidence based investing) to growth investing I was intrigued. ...

The approach has become popular in Healthcare Architecture in an effort to improve patient and staff well-being, patient healing process, stress reduction and safety. Evidence-based design is a relatively new field of study which borrows terminology and ideas from several disciplines including Environmental Psychology , Architecture , Neuroscience and Behavioral Economics .
REVIEWS AND OPINIONS
Evidence-based Investing, Part One
Just as evidence-based medical care utilizes fact-based best practices in treating illness and disease, it is possible to use research from the academic community in making investment decisions.  Evidence-based investing is really a bridge between academic finance research and practical portfolio management. That’s a mouthful, but what it comes down to is attempting to maximize potential returns, while limiting risks and avoiding common mistakes. It all started in 1952 when Harry Markowitz published a seminal paper called Portfolio Selection.  He wrote about risk and return and the value of diversification. It may seem ... market research, surveys and trends

Is the market over-valued? In this week's Outside the Box, one of my favorite global equity analyst's (and no stranger to regular readers), James Montier of Societe Generale does some very interesting analysis on the European and US markets and finds the number of stocks which make his list as possible for being a "short" is at very high levels. This is a remarkable read and re-enforces my view that we are in a "sell in May and go away" summer. This is really a great Outside the Box. Enjoy.

Are stocks worth buying today? Rob Bennett says, “No” as the short reply. His longer answer is in today’s Investing: The New Rules. Investing — The New Rules Stocks Are Not Worth Buying Today #9–June 28, 2010 Are stocks worth buying today? No. That’s the short version of the answer. The longer (and thus more accurate) version follows below. When stocks are selling at the price at which they are selling today, the most likely annualized 10-year return is a bit above 3 percent real. You should be compensated for taking on the risks associated with buying stocks. So my rule is that I will not buy ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

GORDON DUFF: WHY AMERICANS ARE EXPORTING THEMSELVES
Americans are terrible at languages.  I have one friend whose English is questionable, you know who you are, but who speaks Japanese.  Another, Mark Siljander, speaks 11 languages.  I can be misunderstood in several, even, perhaps especially English.  So, when Americans chose to live overseas, it is often a huge inconvenience.  It isn’t just language.  Americans give up cheap gas, OK, not that cheap anymore, cheap food and conveniences found almost no place else, give them up but are still leaving in droves.  Places like Panama and Costa Rica are becoming unaffordable, so many Americans are either moving there, or for the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Fixing Health Care at the Source
With application season upon us, graduating medical students across the nation are preparing right now to compete for coveted spots in residency programs, where they will receive their most critical training and become minted as certified practitioners of medicine. As the controversy over health care funding rages on, we must not forget about the quality of the doctors themselves - and the social implications of our nation's deficient resident selection process. We need to pay close attention to how we are selecting MDs for residency - the final and most demanding stage of physician training for two basic reasons. For one, ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Mutual Funds: Investment Question, investing a lump sum, vertical ...
I am writing in hopes that you might be willing to offer some suggestions on the best and easiest way to structure a financial portfolio based upon the following information. Over the last year I received a small gift and have managed to save a considerable sum, which has been accumulating in a money market account earning only 4%. With a long-term outlook of earning a better return on the money, I am ready to invest, yet at the same time unsure as to the best way to go about investing a lump sum, especially in what appears to be a very inflated market in a number of sectors at this time (domestic equities in general are on a ...

Coming from, perhaps, the least evidence based healthcare profession I hope I can shed some light. I am a chiropractor and despite mounting evidence in the literature about the benefits of spinal manipulation for low back pain, headaches, and neck pain my profession continues to preach about how they can do miraculous things in visceral systems. 90% of the care provided by any chiropractor will be for back pain (over 60% of that low back pain). The evidence is on their side that short treatment plans for low back pain WORK. And yet they continue to chase their tails looking for subluxations that cause liver problems or ...
