-70%? Now that’s what I call a drawdown
Picks from the Value Investing Congress West
I wonder how a tactical system using the timing model would perform on just high vol asset classes? Maybe the following?
Foreign Emerging (EEM)
Foreign Small Cap (GWX)
Junk bonds (HYG)
Emerging Bonds (ESD)
Foreign REITS (RWX)
Any other high risk ETFs that could be used?
Forbes bungling of their aggregator opportunity is getting worse. From an email I received yesterday:
Please assist us in building the relationship with OptionsXpress and others. We are asking you to place an OptionsXpress widget (no revenue – it’s a small widget, I promise) on your site (above the fold). By placing this widget on your site, you will provide OptionsXpress with additional exposure, branding and awareness. This additional exposure will add to our solid click through rate performance and to increased sales / conversions for OptionsXpress. Increased conversions will lead to renewals at higher revenue commitments.
I just want to be clear that this is entirely voluntary and there is no requirement you need to do this– there is no commitment from us to OptionsXpress regarding the widget…however our experience shows us this may indeed boost future revenue levels from this advertiser
So, not only do you take most of the revenue from the blog, then you run ads for the Forbes site for 3 months, then you ask the blogger to run free widgets? What?
