“Better Investing Habits is dedicated to inspiring and nurturing the investing spirit; one habit, one investor, and one family at a time." Being successful at investing is understanding what edge you have as an investor. These edges include informational, analytical, or behavioral. Other than severe market downturns, many of our ideas are generated through informational or analytical edges and include special situations such as, Activist involvement, Merger Arbitrage, and Spin-Offs. Which is why we focus so intently in these areas that give us the largest advantage. If you don't have any one of these edges, don't despair. Generating returns of the market through low cost index funds will give investors a high probability of investment success and achieving their goals over the long-term. It's been our experience that over 90% of investors would benefit from this passive approach to investing.
