Investing Theme Du Jour:
“Dynamic Asset Allocation”

As a result (I assume) of subscribing to The Wall Street Journal, I’m treated to a steady stream of junk mail pitches from various mutual funds, money managers, etc.

The latest:  a Boston-based firm that claims to deliver superior returns based on their prowess at “dynamic asset allocation.”

In a nutshell, they promise to maximize their clients’ exposure to bull markets, wherever and whatever they may be, while simultaneously avoiding bear markets.

I think that that used to be called “market timing.”

It’s hard to beat Mark Twain’s advice on that subject:  ‘only buy stocks that go up.  If they don’t go up . . . don’t buy ’em.’
