  • The Power Of Effective Diversification 4 comments
    Aug 14, 2012 4:09 PM | about stocks: IVV, VNQ, DBC, MUB, PZA, VGT, QQQ

    I have been writing about how well diversification works for a long time--with many articles on this topic published at Seeking Alpha. I published one of the first pieces about Target Date Folios (highly diversified portfolios designed for different stages of life) back in early 2008. I worked with FolioInvesting in the development of these strategies. Then the crash came. The Target Date Folios weathered that period (you can judge the results for yourself).

    The last several years has seen a major rally in the S&P500. This period provides an outstanding environment to see whether diversification really adds value. I have a new post on this theme here.

    Hi Jeff,

     

    I saw this because I'm following you on SA - it's great to see you still writing.

     

    Best,
    David

    Author’s reply » Hi Rob and David:

     

    Thanks for your comments. I have remained active in writing, just not at SA. I write monthly as a columnist at Advisor Perspectives and I also contribute frequently to Folio Investing's corporate blog, portfolioist.com. Time allowing, I am going to try to do some instablog pieces here at SA.

     

    Regards,

     

    Geoff

    Thanks for the reply back.
    I have actually been keeping up to date with your writings there. And re-reading your past articles. Keep up the great work.
