We're back! I really missed podcasting so my retirement was short-lived.

I'll be joining the conversation over on Karl and Laura's podcast, The Desert Sanctuary, on a monthly basis starting this month. …
 
In a world where inflation is not a threat, a standard 60-40 portfolio does an excellent job of providing growth, while also limiting downside when stocks get choppy. You don’t need anything more than the last 40 years, when the 60-40 portfolio had its best stretch ever, to illustrate that. The 60/40 has produced a 9.2% annualized return going back…

Research shows that value stocks can generate an excess return because the market tends to overestimate their problems, and value investors benefit when it realizes that. But despite that being true on average, many value stocks actually have even bigger problems than the market has priced in. This week, we look at one of the quantitative strategie…

The 4% rule has become one of the cornerstones of retirement planning.

Laura and talk about a technique that is very effective. When we say things like “I feel angry,” it implies that our entire being is angry.

The success of of the low volatility factor can be challenging to explain. Investing theory teaches us that to get an additional return, we need to take additional risk and if we reduce risk, our return should come down with it. But low volatility seems to defy that rule. In this episode, we look at the low volatility factor, how it is defined, and…

Deep value investing is about buying companies that other investors don’t want.
