Wall Street Journal “Discovers” DFA and Passive Investing
While we don’t think of ourselves as the passive types, it’s interesting to see The Wall Street Journal shine its bright spotlight on passive investing and related evidence-based investing in its new series, “The Passivists.”
You can browse the entire series, or here are a couple of our favorite installments:
The Dying Business of Picking Stocks, Anne Tergesen and Jason Zweig
News flash! “Investors are giving up on stock picking.” Our take on the matter: It’s about time.
Featuring Dimensional Fund Advisors, with founder, chairman and co-CEO David Booth reflecting that “A little bit of judgment can make a difference.”
As the media turns its attention to the types of investment strategies we’ve been employing at Hill Investment Group since our founding, we wonder whether this will be a passing fad, a lasting improvement for investors or (as is so often the case in life), a little of both. Whatever. We’ll enjoy the wider coverage while it lasts, and still be encouraging you to Take the Long View with your investments, long after the spotlight has moved on.
