In this week’s post, we discuss three articles. The first article examines the effect of concentration (i.e. how many stocks does one own) within a Value portfolio. The second paper, summarized by Larry Swedroe, examines ways in which one can protect a portfolio from equity drawdowns. The last article, summarized by Elisabetta, examines the protection (and cost) of buying put options to protect one’s portfolio.
