Video Summary

Ryan and I discuss three articles published on our blog this week. First, we examine a paper by Linda Zhang investigating the volatility of leveraged ETFs. Second, we discuss an article (and corresponding video and PPT slides from Wes) examining stock momentum strategies. The talk is titled “Momentum Investing, Simple, but not Easy”. Last, we examine an article by Aaron Brask examining the value of retirement accounts–this article, along with the prior one, is a must read for those interested in understanding the benefits of retirement accounts.

Links to the post are below for those interested in digging into the details!
