Money managers out to avoid mediocrity
First, the managers — Edward von der Linde and Howard Hansen — ignore the indexes; they pay no attention to how an index that somewhat resembles their own holdings has been behaving. Some investors pay rapt attention to the indexes — in determining how much exposure they have to certain industries and to certain stocks. If an index has 3% in Exxon and they have only 2%, they begin to worry. What they are really afraid of is that their own portfolio will trail far behind the indexes. Whereas if their portfolio happens just to do miserably, like the index, well, they have a terrific excuse: "Hey, we didn't do much worse ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
