Welcome to the newly re-titled weekly video, Compound Your Knowledge. In today’s video, we examine three posts. First, we examine a simple analysis of 2018 Factor portfolio returns. Second, we examine a guest post by Jon Seed examining Warren’s put options, and how they are different than most investors put options. Last, we examine a guest post by Tommi, discussing a new Fama and French article highlighting the distribution of equity returns. A special thanks to Kyle Baxter, who runs the video/sound production.
