What is the one line that someone says that you know you shouldn't take financial advice from them, that you just stop listening altogether.

My most recent one: "Invest in gold or other metals."

not american, but what's wrong with 401ks?

as far as I can tell you can save yourself the income tax as long as you put your cash into a managed fund or something. since you should put your money into an index fund anyways, why not save taxes while doing it?

If you believe the stock market is gambling or rigged, then why are you investing in an index fund that invests in the stock market? You're better off picking random stocks.

And you are better off buying a house and renting out spare bedrooms than renting.

Index funds are proven to produce better returns over time. Renting is a lot cheaper in a lot of places than a mortgage. Are you fags serious?

I didn't say it was rigged, retard. It's a fact that the majority of actively managed funds and day traders don't make any more money than if they had just put it all into index funds or ETFs.

I think the research into equal-weighted indexing is extremely interesting, and I'm keeping a close eye on its development. I think its somewhat unlikely that continued rigorous academic scrutiny will bear this out, but I've got an open mind.

You have to remember that researchers and analysts are constantly evaluating new investing strategies. The beauty of the computer-age is the ability to easily backtest any arbitrary set of trading rules. As a consequence, every year we hear of some new approach, be it revolutionary or simply a tweak to an old idea. And they all come with some evidence that they outperform the S&P or other relevant index.

The problem is that further testing tends to disprove the value of almost all of these new portfolios. In the best case, they offer no meaningful improvements over simple index investing, and in the worst case, they significantly underperform.

Only a fool would change their investment strategy based on a strategy not yet exposed to strict academic review and testing. Those who do will find their assets stuck in things like the Permanent Portfolio, the Dogs of the Dow, the Coffeehouse Portfolio, the Margaritaville, the No Brainer Portfolio ... etc., etc., etc., all of which were or are popular "improvements" to index investing. And all of which have underwhelmed and underperformed.

Indeed, to my mind, the only tweak that has stood up to serious academic query is the recommendation to strategically overweight into small-cap value stocks in a long-term portfolio.

So, is equal-weighted index investing just another meme investing tweak? Probably, but I don't know yet. There's certainly not enough evidence for any serious investor to divert otherwise productive capital into that approach.

What's puzzling is why you keep shilling this whitepaper as if you, yourself, discovered the holy grail? You're obviously not smart enough to be a serious or credible advocate for the theory. So why make such an ass of yourself?

>So how much of that money was given to you by mommy and daddy?
I did inherit a small sum, about 2% of my net worth. That, and my parents did pay my education costs, for which I am quite grateful. So yes, I had strong financial support from my family. But no, that's not where my money came from.

I never claimed to be a rags-to-riches story. If that's the role model you're looking for, look elsewhere.

>>987369
>What does your portfolio look like? Just VTASX and whatever the bond vanguard ticker is, or...?
85/15 stock/bonds. 60/25/15 large/mid/small. 80/20 domestic/international. 65/35 index/active.

As for my actual holdings, my portfolio was constructed over many years and I didn't have a clear design at the outset. As such, I have separate small, mid and large cap funds, separate value and growth funds, and separate international funds. Add to that my actively managed funds, and my tax-managed funds. Then add my some one-off stocks, ETFs, and MLPs. All together, its about 40 separate holdings.

I don't really recommend that people build a portfolio the way I did. It's a lot to manage, and I wish I could cut it down to 20 or so funds. But at the end of the day, its really more about your allocations and your fees than which exact funds you own.

Out of interest, did you specifically allocate those proportions according to some research or is that just what you were comfortable with? If so, could you name the source/paper?

Also, if you believe small cap out-performance will persist, why do you have such a small allocation to small caps? How often do you re-balance?

>did you specifically allocate those proportions according to some research or is that just what you were comfortable with?
The allocations reflect my risk tolerances, investing horizon, and tax needs. They aren't based on any particular research or study.

>if you believe small cap out-performance will persist, why do you have such a small allocation to small caps?
Fair question.

First, understand that in the US, small caps are only about 9-10% of the total market. So even at 15% I'm already modestly over-weighting.

Second, I've only become convinced of the merits of strategic over-weighting this year, and I'm still deciding if and how to fold this into my overall strategy. Small caps are more volatile, and therefore strategic over-weighting is more suited to investors with the longest time horizons (i.e., young investors in their 20's and 30's). By comparison, I'm older, wealthier, and more risk averse than the average 20-30 year old. So even though I believe in overweighting small caps, that doesn't by itself answer the question how to adapt that to my situation.

I suspect I'll build to about 20%, slowly (see below), because that seems right for me.

>How often do you re-balance?
I don't do traditional rebalancing because the tax hits would be too great. I have substantial unrealized capital gains in almost all my funds, and because I'm in the highest tax bracket for gains taxes, moving allocations around is too costly to justify under normal circumstances. Something as small as a 5% shift in my holdings means a $600,000 transaction and possibly as much as $40,000-$60,000 in taxes.

(Its for the same reason that I'm stuck with 40 funds and can't simplify my holdings as I'd like. It'd just be too costly).

Instead, I try to keep my allocations in line with new money from other sources or investments. Because I own so many different funds, its easy to buy whatever specific allocation sector needs to be boosted. I've made it work so far.
