“I personally think that the key to explaining what is wrong with the market lies in agency theory.”. I will elaborate on this (I was sure I had done so previously, but cannot find anything). Pretend you are a fund manager. You do not want to take too much of a risk that you will under-perform really badly and get fired, so you do some closet tracking with most of the fund. That’s your core, so what about the satellite ? What you need is something with the potential to get spectacular performance, reasonably soon. Value investing is likely to out-perform, but over the long term. Use an approach like this, and ...

US Commercial Property BubbleOmics | Andrew Butter | Stockopedia
Some folks made a fortune after the S&L buying up commercial property for a song, tidying it up, holding it for a few years and then cashing out. Will history repeat itself? It’s a tough call; plenty of people lost their shirts this time around trying to catch the falling knife. There again anyone who was in the game in London six to nine months ago did very well, a good example of a transaction that turned some heads was the purchase of Canary Wharf’s landmark building (former HQ for Bear Stearns) which was just sold for £208 million even though it was valued at £170 million last June.

Twenty years ago, Norway established a sovereign wealth fund to manage the public wealth generated by its oil revenues. Today the Government Pension Fund–Global is valued at well over $400 billion, larger than the size of Norway’s annual GDP. With only five million residents, the fund represents close to $100,000 per citizen, and, as such, is understandably prominent in Norwegian life. Consequently, there was a great deal of public debate about how the fund should be managed after Norway’s fund, like many funds, experienced significant losses as a result of sharp declines in global asset prices in 2008 and ... market research, surveys and trends


Manager Frets Over the Market, but Still Outdoes It - New York Times

Mr. Klarman, a 49-year-old hedge fund manager, has turned in market-beating performances since 1983, while perpetually warning that the markets were dangerous and that investors should minimize risk. What is his investment approach? He will not spell it out, although lots of people would like to know. On the Web, the price for his out-of-print 1991 book � �Margin of Safety: Risk-Averse Value Investing Strategies for the Thoughtful Investor� � has gone ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Insider trading, earnings quality, and accrual mispricing ...
This paper investigates whether insider trading is informative about earnings quality (defined as the likelihood that a firm can sustain current earnings in the future) and the valuation implications of accruals. Recent evidence suggests that even sophisticated market participants such as analysts and auditors do not fully understand the persistence and valuation implications of accounting accruals. (1) Two possible explanations for these findings include (1) the relation between the firm's accrual-generating process and future earnings is sufficiently complex that investors fail to identify the transitory nature of the ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
How to invest profitably in volatile markets
Volatility is a recurrent feature of modern markets. The market surges wildly up one day, sharply down the next as sentiment rather valuations becomes its main driver.

First, a good investor becomes a more active decision-maker. In a turbulent market, the reason the market is moving up or down is that something is changing in the current situation or, more probably, in expectations for the future. As a result, an investor has ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

How does one pick stocks? | Ask MetaFilter
My Grandad has offered me some money to invest over a 12 month period. I can keep what I make in excess of interest. He's made it implicit that this venture carries no financial risks for me (I trust him fully). It's clear he mainly wants this to be a teaching and bonding experience for us. So far, so good: this is a generous offer, I'm keen to have this experience with him, and the last thing I want to do is appear ungrateful. However, he has in mind that I should pick a few stocks and sink the money into them exclusively. I plan on going along with him on this in spite of what I think I know of the market. ...
