The Stingy News Weekly: January 22, 2023
01/22/23   SNW
This week we have dividends, low fees, periodic mixing, and more.

Rich income
01/22/23   Thrift
"if you're interested in understanding how your income compares to others in the U.S. (and whether that makes you rich), then you've come to the right place. So, how much income do you need to be rich? Let's find out."

The easy way to returns
01/17/23   Stingy Investing
"Slashing fees is an easy, and practical, way to boost long-term returns and it explains the popularity of low-fee funds and very low-fee index funds in particular."

The smaller stable dividend portfolio
01/17/23   Stingy Investing
"I used a combined injection of low-volatility and dividends on large stocks to form the Stable Dividend portfolio. This time around I'm using a similar approach to inoculate smaller stocks to form the, imaginatively named, Smaller Stable Dividend portfolio."

Price-to-fantasy ratio
01/17/23   Markets
"If reported earnings next year merely match the likely final 2022 level of $181, then the current price-to-forward earnings (P/F) ratio is 21. In 2023, if earnings tumble just 20% from 2022 levels, then the correct current P/F ratio is 26, hardly a bargain."

Asset Mixer Update
01/17/23   Stingy Investing
We've updated our Asset Mixer to include real data for 2022.

Periodic Table Update
01/17/23   Stingy Investing
We've updated our periodic table of annual returns for Canadians to include real data for 2022.

The Stingy News Weekly: January 15, 2023
01/15/23   SNW
This week we have Cliff, interviews, bacon, and more.

Cliff Asness interview
01/15/23   Asness
"Cliff joins the show to discuss FTX, AMC, why hedge funds aren't hedging, the role of index funds and a whole lot more."

A place to start
01/15/23   Retirement
"The 4% rule may be making a comeback. But it's just a starting point - and you shouldn't necessarily follow it precisely."

Job interview nightmare
01/15/23   Management
"Companies are seemingly coming up with new, higher, and harder hoops to jump through at every turn. That translates to endless rounds of interviews, various arbitrary tests, and complex exercises and presentations that entail hours of work and prep. There can be good reasons for firms to do this - they really want to make sure they get the right person, and they're trying to reduce biases - but it's hard not to feel like it can just be too much."

Uncorrelated assets
01/15/23   :Asness
"Recently, Dimensional Fund Advisors wrote critically on 'liquid alts.' They make some good points, but they also draw some odd conclusions that if applied more generally would not be to their (or our) liking. Besides discussing their piece, below I take this opportunity to review the general rationale behind holding uncorrelated assets (in particular, equity 'factors' held in a long-short manner)."

Spending money
01/15/23   Thrift
"How people invest their money tends to be hidden from view. But how they spend is far more visible, so what it shows about who you are can be even more insightful."

Crispy bacon
01/15/23   Funds
"Being wedded to a benchmark by relative return fears, career risk, and investment mandates, in our opinion, practically guarantees a highly correlated and ordinary outcome. If the objective is to achieve higher returns with less risk, we do not believe looking like everyone else, or serving soggy bacon, is the answer. Bacon, in our opinion, should be served crispy."

The Stingy News Weekly: January 8, 2023
01/08/23   SNW
This week we have the asset mixer, periodic table for Canadians, recessions, bonds, and more.

Harvey vs the spread
01/08/23   Markets
"The spread, which Harvey's work is based on, has been consistently inverted since mid November and hovered Wednesday at around minus 82 basis points. Despite the curve being inverted for the ninth time since 1968, Harvey said it's probably not a harbinger for a recession."

Trading a 2s10s inversion
01/08/23   Bonds
"We have discussed why the yield curve inversion is important to investors while showing that such an event, despite not offering an immediate boon for bond investors, does support both intermediate and long-term forward return outperformance. Further, we have also demonstrated that bond price returns following the peak of a yield curve inversion tend to produce above average forward-looking returns across all time horizons."

Volatility laundering
01/08/23   Funds
"Given the massive popularity of private investing today, it may very well be true that, as a great man once almost said, 'Never have so many paid so much to so few for the privilege of being told so little.'"

The bubble has not popped
01/08/23   Value Investing
"Value spread at 94th percentile"

A disaster for Tesla
01/08/23   Markets
"On this metric, Tesla still has a similar enterprise value to many of these automakers combined even after falling so sharply in 2022, despite being utterly unjustified by current fundamentals."

Asset Mixer Update
01/03/23   Stingy Investing
We've updated our Asset Mixer to include nominal data for 2022.

Periodic Table Update
01/03/23   Stingy Investing
We've updated our periodic table of annual returns for Canadians to include nominal data for 2022.
