On the risks of concentration
07/04/20 2:23 PM ESTStingy Investing
"Investors inspired by Mr. Munger's success should think thrice before buying just a few stocks. Such portfolios tend to either do very well or very poorly, but the odds favour the poor side of the ledger. While performing poorly is unfortunate for billionaires, it can be devastating for those of us of more modest means." [$]

Beyond the zero bound
07/04/20 2:19 PM ESTValue Investing
"Perhaps the most significant conclusion to draw from Japan's experience during ZIRP therefore is not about the special impact of a low-rate environment. As we see it, interest rates were relevant in predicting bond returns and the poor performance of bank stocks, but other asset classes were better predicted by relying on entry valuations and yields."

The twilight of bonds
06/26/20 10:37 PM ESTBonds

A top-heavy stock market
06/26/20 9:47 PM ESTMarkets
"To this point, charting the performance of stocks following the year they joined the list of the ten largest firms shows decidedly less stratospheric results. On average, these stocks outperformed the market by an annualised 0.7% in the subsequent three-year period. Over five- and ten-year periods, these stocks underperformed the market on average."

06/26/20 8:48 PM ESTValue Investing
"The market today is a tale of two cities. Growth stocks are trading at very rich valuations as their prices have shrugged off any economic effects of coronavirus, whereas value stocks are trading at deeply discounted valuations that reflect significant fear about the pandemic's economic impact."

Broken asset classes
06/26/20 8:44 PM ESTMarkets
"In the five years after an asset class was declared broken, each roared back in a strong, and for many, swift rebound. All except one snapped back within one year, generating returns that ranged from 14% for US stocks to 68% for commodities. The sole dawdler, REITs, rebounded in 18 months, ultimately delivering a cumulative 86% return at the five-year mark - the weakest performance of the group."

Hedge fund performance fees
06/26/20 8:42 PM ESTFunds
"Overall, investors collected 36 cents for every dollar earned on their invested capital (over a risk-free hurdle rate and before adjusting for any risk). In the cross-section of funds, there is a substantial disconnect between lifetime performance and incentive fees earned. These poor outcomes stem from the asymmetry of the performance contract, investors' return-chasing behavior, and underwater fund closures."

Hertz donut
06/20/20 8:15 PM ESTStocks
"The stock of Hertz will, with high likelihood, go out at zero. Start with this: the firm has filed for bankruptcy. Stockholders mostly get nothing in bankruptcy. Sometimes they might get a little new stock or some warrants to help them save face, because they are delaying the reorganization, but this is usually a trivial amount of money, and implies a big loss to the stockholders."

Costs kill the overnight anomaly
06/20/20 8:01 PM ESTMarkets
"dissecting the data behind this supposed market timing strategy reveals that not only are any excess returns diminished by transaction costs, but the performance relative to buy-and-hold gross of costs has waned over the years."
