Reintroducing The Concept Of Stock Market Investing Risk / Companies / Risk Analysis

By: WMA

It has been a while. Aside from a bit of turbulence at the end of 2015 and the beginning of 2016, those investors turning a blind eye to financial market risk enjoyed a winning strategy since 2011. Equity market volatility had been particularly subdued from the U.S. election in November 2016 until this month. We knew that this extreme complacency had to end…it just lasted longer than any rational analyst could have predicted.

It almost seems perverse to write a Commentary on the importance of managing risk in this great economic expansion with strong company profits – aided by the Republican tax cuts. Investors who just buy companies whose share prices are setting all-time record highs pass as financial geniuses. However the earnings outlook, in our opinion, has gotten a bit too rosy. Wall Street optimism has markets priced for perfection, and with many market-leading stocks trading at levels inconsistent with past earnings cycles. And more experienced investors should know that bull markets do not die on pessimism. Our challenge is to convince our readers and investors that investing in a portfolio of blue-chip stocks today is not a sufficient risk management strategy.

Dangerous Nonsense: Trading the Equity Curve and Market Timing / InvestorEducation / Risk Analysis

By: Submissions

Anthony Garner writes: Using a simple system it is said to be possible to achieve a better risk adjusted return than would be achieved by buy and hold. Maximum drawdown may be less severe and standard deviation may be lower.

Much is made by the retail investment community (and indeed others who should know better) of the advantages of algorithmic market timing based on limited testing over limited timeframes and over an even more limited number of instruments.

Tail Risk - Investors Suffering Permanent Loss / Stock-Markets / Risk Analysis

By: Fred_Sheehan

In a recent memo to Oaktree Capital clients, Chairman Howard Marks writes about "the time I spent advising a sovereign wealth fund about how to organize for the next thirty years. My presentation was built significantly around my conviction that risk can't be quantified a priori. Another of their advisors, a professor from a business school north of New York, insisted it can. This is something I prefer not to debate, especially with people who're sure they have the answer but haven't bet much money on it."

Responding to Financial Crisis Risk With intelligent Analytics / Stock-Markets / Risk Analysis

By: Submissions

Joe Budden writes: Following the financial crisis of 2007-2008, many veteran traders were faced with a totally different financial landscape in which to operate. The ‘New Normal’, a term first coined by Pimco trader, Mohammed El-Erian, became the finance community’s go-to word for a new world order which bore more similarities with the post Depression era than anything investors had previously experienced.

The Role of Risk in Portfolio Investment Asset Allocation / Portfolio / Risk Analysis

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDiversification of your investments is the only real free lunch, or so we are told. But how do we go about deciding what to diversify into? In this week’s short Outside the Box, my friend Jason Hsu of Research Affiliates argues that the real basis for diversification should be risk. And given that risk seems to be rising everywhere we look, thinking about how to deal with risk in our portfolios makes a great deal of sense.

I’m also including in today’s OTB a complementary piece by good friend Charles Gave of GaveKal. This is a short piece that is long on common sense and that winds up with a straightforward list of places where we can invest to minimize risk.

How to build an Optimal Investment Portfolio with Markowatz'​s Portfolio Theory? / InvestorEducation / Risk Analysis

By: Sam_Chee_Kong

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere have been many changes in today’s stock market trading landscape which is dominated by computers and ECN networks as compared to the ‘open outcry’ system that existed until the early 1980s. During those days markets are relatively inefficient in a way that price change does not reflect the change in the news and events. Those who can get hold of technologies will have the upper hand in trading the markets because they will receive the news much sooner than the rest of us. Those who possess telex, fax and computers will certainly have an advantage not only in receiving the news but also in executing the buy and sell orders.

General Thoughts About Luck / InvestorEducation / Risk Analysis

By: Ashvin_Pandurangi

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article

As someone who plays poker regularly, I'd like to think that I have a good understanding of why luck is important in our lives. It's NOT because the world is completely random and we have no influence over what outcomes will materialize for us - actually, it is the very fact that we do make meaningful decisions in the face of uncertainty that generates luck. Let me try to explain what I mean with an analogy to the game of poker.

Poker is a game of skill, which means those players with superior skills (patience, discipline, memory, critical/logical thinking, mathematical analysis) have a long-term edge over the less skillful among them. It is a very simple game with simple rules governing what each player can do (fold, call, bet, raise), what order they can do it in, how much they can bet at any given time, which hands rank higher than others, etc.

This Simple Step Could Save Your Investment Portfolio / Portfolio / Risk Analysis

By: Jared_Levy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJust about every stockbroker, financial advisor or money manager worth their weight in salt knows that diversification is a major way to us to manage investment risk.

But here's what most -- professionals and retail investors alike fail to remember: Diversification doesn't just mean choosing to invest in different companies that do different things and that's it. Creating real diversity and ultimately protecting your investment portfolio involves a little more work, which amazingly, most professionals still get wrong.

The reality is that most American investors have no idea that currency exchange rates directly affect U.S. corporate earnings, this country's stock market, or the growth rate of our economy.

A Value Investors View of Portfolio Risk vs. Diversification / Portfolio / Risk Analysis

By: Hans_Wagner

Diversification is the one of the ways to reduce risk, or so we learned. While a properly diversified portfolio might reduce your risk of loss, it also lowers the chance you have to achieve market-beating returns.

If you are a value investor, you find that your approach already reduces your risk of loss without having to resort to various diversification schemes.

How to Cut the Risk in Your Stocks Portfolio / / Risk Analysis

By: Bryan_Rich

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI normally talk only about currencies in my Money and Markets columns. But today I want to make an exception and address some commonly held misconceptions many investors have about their investments.

For the typical individual investor it’s easy to get caught up in the 24-hour a day media hype of the stock market. So it’s no surprise that  many live and die with the direction of the market. They’ve bought hook-line-and-sinker into the notion that blindly plowing money into stocks is the only way to grow their wealth.

Risk, The Essence Of Investing / InvestorEducation / Risk Analysis

By: Steve_Selengut

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMost investors incorrectly think of "risk" as the possibility that the market value of a financial asset might fall below the amount that he or she has invested in the asset. OMG, how could this be happening!

Think about it. The harboring of these misconceptions (that lower market price = loss or bad and/or that higher market price = profit or good) is the greatest risk creator of all. It invariably causes inappropriate actions within the large mass of individuals who are uninitiated in the ways of the investment gods.

Risk Management and Portfolio Optimization / Portfolio / Risk Analysis

By: Peter_Johansson

Stock analysis based on technical analysis or fundamental analysis is getting a lot of attention and often form the the basis for investment decisions. Many private investors combine perhaps 5-10 assets into a portfolio and let their intuition guide the allocate between the assets. How this allocation could be done in an optimal way, analytically, receives little attention in financial newspapers and marketing from financial institutes although it has a great significance for expected returns and portfolio risk.
