Moneyball Investing: To Win Big, Avoid the Losers
What can investors learn from Billy Beane, famed general manager of the Oakland A’s baseball team? First and foremost: Rely less on emotions and more on cold, hard facts to make informed decisions. That means letting market data do the talking, so that investors can avoid exposure to companies with poor fundamentals and capture only the strongest players in the market.
In this upcoming webinar, New Age Alpha and ETF Trends will outline a portfolio strategy that seeks to unearth a new source of outperformance by specifically excluding companies with weak fundamentals.
Dave Nadig, CIO of ETF Trends and ETF Database, will moderate a discussion on:
- Why avoiding losers rather than picking winners works as an investment strategy
- How to think in terms of probabilities, not preferences in a portfolio setting
- Under the hood of a systematic, rules-based approach that keeps "gut feelings" out of portfolio management
Accepted for one hour of CFP/CIMA CE credit for live and on-demand attendees
