    Still, the adjusted return is an important factor when comparing returns.

    I think you have flaw in your data. You are only looking at the returns from the chart of yahoo, not actual returns including dividend adjusted data. Please look at the dividend adjust values in yahoo, its charts doesnt use the dividend adjusted data.

    For eg, dividend adjust closing for your dates (Jan 30, 2004 and Oct 30, 2014) are
    VAW 106.40 40.61
    XLB 47.51 19.85

    So, the total return is
    VAW 162%
    XLB 139.35%

    Please redo the article and report the new numbers.

    (Hint: look at the adj close numbers in the yahoo historical data)

  • ETF Spotlight: Cambria Global Tactical ETF [View article]
    It has underperformed big time. Mabene Faber just talks and sells books but a failure. I wont be surprised if this fund closes in another 6-12 months. It has losts more than 2/3rd of it assets ! Only 48M now, I think it was 150M or so at the peak. Mabene is yet another charlatan. Sells his bogus ideas and make money from books. The stock market is full of these kind of people whose "paper ideas" never panned out. Another classic example is Jubak fund, google his name and fund for laughs.

  • Ambarella, Inc.: Bad IPO Timing And Pricing, Creates Micro Cap Investment Opportunity [View article]
    And yet the shares keeps going down. Closed at 6.00 today. No amount of fundamentals can dictate the market price.
