Total Return: Smoke and Mirrors?

07/30/14 5:40 am

Just what is this “total return” hoop that investment managers are required to jump through? Why is it mostly just smoke and mirrors? Here’s the formula: Total Income + (or -) Change in Market Value – Expenses = Total Return — the ultimate test for any investment portfolio. Applied to income purpose portfolios, it is really […]

Social Investor Relations

07/29/14 4:25 am

The Retirement Income Gap

07/29/14 2:00 am

Target Date Funds = Market Timing Roulette Wheels?

07/22/14 5:57 am

Ross Kerber’s Reuters “feed” entitled: “Target date funds try timing the market” is really a must read article… what it says in a nutshell is that market value growth considerations are wagging the retirement income dog yet again.

07/22/14 2:00 am

Yes, that eliminates all Mutual Funds and ETFs, since neither admit fiduciary responsibility. But Mutual Funds, ETFs, and Collective Trusts could be recommended by plan fiduciaries who are not paid for product […]

07/21/14 2:35 pm

The Investment Gods Created Volatility… and it was...

07/15/14 2:00 am

Have you noticed how paranoid people are getting about market “volatility”. OMG, cries the DOL, we’re going to fine employers if their 401k plan participants don’t grow their balances as fast as the average plan around the country… thus making the Federal Government a participant in roughly half the 401k plans in every audit time […]
