  • New Hedge Fund ETFs For Small-Cap And International Stocks [View article]
    You didn't mention (ALFA), which has a methodology similar to (GURU) but also has a hedging feature if things get really ugly. I like these Global X products but that hedging feature in the AlphaClone product is very desirable especially when investing in what may be a market top and now the beginning of a sizeable correction or worse.

  • The Four Horsemen Of The Stock Market Apocalypse [View article]
    According to my charts you would not be back in the market til 2010. Those juicy gains for 2009 would be missed. Albeit you would have been out around late 2007. A simple moving average for the VIX may be helpful in using this strategy.

  • Alternative Equity ETFs - Do They Deliver Value? [View article]
    I like the ALFA product. Albeit an unsophisticated hedging feature but it seems promising judging from its index.

    My thoughts exactly. When you discover a market mispricing or a nice "undiscovered" market anomaly one should keep it to oneself.

  • VIX Shorts, Look Out Below [View article]
    ZIV would not see a 50% haircut in context of XIV. ZIV is much tamer and less volatile (pun intended) due to its mid term structure. People should look at however what an almost 20% correction did to these products in 2011. Bacwardation is a fast moving killer to these inverse volatility products. Fortunately backwardation is not at all a common occurrence. VIX contango is very much the normal term structure. But you have to be aware. Look at August 8, 2011....yikes!!!

  • Dividend Stocks Vs. Dividend ETFs [View article]
    Wouldn't the costs associated with a yearly re-balancing individual stocks have much more costs than owning a fund and its expenses ???? There are also probably better examples of dividend growth than the backward looking SDY. Maybe DGRW, VIG among others.
