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 […]

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 […]
