Investment Outlook

Competition, Conflict & Volatility All Normal

Understand that a properly functioning market doesn’t go up, or down, unimpeded, forever. Markets are comprised of human beings with nervous systems and emotions who think, feel and react differently. As such, market participants have competing objectives, which creates conflicts, that are expressed as volatility. The market needs competition. The market needs conflict. The market needs volatility. If all market participants were on the same page at the same time there would be no competition, or conflict, or volatility, and therefore no risk. Without risk there would be no returns. Historically, the ability to understand and manage risk is what separated success from failure.

The Hulbert 2017-2018 Investment Newsletter Honor Roll

The investment newsletters on the Hulbert 2017-18 Investment Newsletter Honor Roll are those that have produced above-average performance in both above and down markets.

Though this Honor Roll is not the only way of slicing and dicing our performance data, I do urge you to give it serious consideration. Newsletters that have been on past years’ Honor Rolls have, on average, proceeded to outperform other services that did not make the grade.

But I would urge you to pay close attention to the Honor Roll even if the newsletters on it didn’t end up outperforming those that do not. That’s because the “slow-and-steady” Honor Roll newsletters are least likely to be ones that you stop following at inopportune times. That’s important, since the key to long-term success is actually following a strategy through thick and thin. It doesn’t do you any good to follow an adviser with a good rating if you dump him when the markets move against you.
