Portfolio Diversification and Risk Management in Stock Investing - 20 Jul 2015 18:12

Tags:

[[html]]<img alt="How to Diversify Investment" data-caption="How to Diversify Investment" data-credit="Larry_Page" data-credit-link="http://www.flickr.com/photos/igboo/3828025192/" src="https://static.suite.io/article_images/orig/13d6d703-e822-46ac-a462-1f283efe0942.jpg" title="How to Diversify Investment"/>Stock market investors seek diversification for a multitude of reasons. Stock specific risk can be diversified by increasing the number of holdings in order to mitigate the effects of a blow up in any particular stock. However, the greater challenge lies with eradicating systematic or market risk.<br><br><img style="float:right;margin:10px;border:none;" src="http://media.salon.com/2012/02/brain.jpg" width="383" /><br><br>Market risk can never be totally eliminated within a stock portfolio however it is possible to decrease the level of correlation within a portfolio. For example, investors could favour small caps over large caps. This is feasible because it is possible to find stocks whose earnings are less exposed to the economy at large. Indeed, it is easy to find counter-cyclical stocks within the small cap universe.<br><br>Another option is to reduce the number of holdings and have a few 'focused' positions. However, this approach will increase stock specific risk, so it is hard to argue that it is reducing risk.<br><br>Non-Correlated Portfolio. Absolute Returns<br><br>Equity market risk can be reduced via hedging or other alternative strategies. Indeed, the single most important issue facing investors today may well be how to produce non-directional returns in a world that is becoming increasingly correlated. That is a subject matter which is covered here. This article will focus on a long only stock portfolio.<br><br><object width="400" height="241"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/5CqUYBopWLs&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/5CqUYBopWLs&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="241"></embed></object><br><br>Stock Beta<br><br>Capital Asset Pricing Model CAPM enthusiasts such as Harry Markowitz would tend to argue that all the profit and price drivers will be captured in the beta of the stock. However, beta-by definition-is always a historical measure and will tell not necessarily predict the future. Markets change and there is an art to identifying and diversifying the profit drivers within a portfolio. Whilst beta will capture some elements, the factors of error in this approach may preclude its usefulness.<br><br>Diversifying Investment<br><br>The essence of diversifying a portfolio is to diversify the profit drivers within it. Naturally, this approach relies on the corollary that earnings drive prices. The difficult part lies in identifying the profit drivers. The following method is a process based on that taken by the founder of Sony, Akio Morita in Made in Japan: Akio Morita and Sony. The investor discovers the individual profit drivers, he can then seek to diversify them eithin a portfolio.<br><br>Company Administration<br><br>How is the company run internally? Examples of the things investors can look for are who, are the key personnel and what are their motives? Some companies are run more for the interests of their directors than the shareholders. Is the company run by reputable businessmen? Are they serial stock option issuers? Is there business model unusual or opaque?<br><br>Operational Drivers<br><br>How they perform within their markets compared to competition? This is the area <a href=""></a> where 'science' can play a large part since investors can compare a host of operational metrics across industry competitors. For example, comparing a company's gross margins compared to <a href=""></a> the industry will help gauge their competitive position.<br><br>With <a href=""></a> retail stocks, analysts will look at comparable like for like sales growth across the industry. With Pharmaceutical stocks, analysts will focus on their research and development programme. The list of specific metrics is almost endless, but the key point is to focus and identify what is likely to move earnings and prices in future.<br><br>Strategic Investments<br><br>What are the strategic end drivers of their business? This is usually the most important part. Industries like miners and many energy companies are strategically exposed to the prices of the commodities that they deal in. Indeed, most companies are exposed to an over- riding macro factor. For example, consumer goods companies are exposed to consumer spending cycles.<br><br>A simplistic view of this approach would be to <a href=""></a> define companies in terms of having cyclical or defensive qualities. However, in reality, economies and, individual company prospects are far more complex. Defining a strategic profit driver may appear to be a science but in fact it is more of an art.<br><br>Portfolio Management<br><br>Once this process is completed and the investor has defined the key drivers, he can thing bring about diversifying the portfolio. For example, a properly diversified portfolio will not be overweight in one sector or theme. So if an investor finds that he is overweight in stocks benefiting from rising oil prices, then he should look to buy companies that are positively exposed to falling oil prices. For example, plastics manufacturers or data centre operators.<br><br><img style="float:left;margin:10px;border:none;" src="http://wbiton.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/Technology.jpg" width="310" /><br><br>This hedging process will not necessarily result in flat performance because the companies involved will have other growth kickers. In this example, the oil companies may discover significant new reserves and the data centre could see significantly increased demand for its centres. However, the exposure to rising oil price movements will be limited via diversification.<br><br>This process is particularly applicable to portfolio that has been constructed through a bottom up process because a bottom up portfolio could be manifesting an unintentional style or sector bias.<br><br><object width="400" height="241"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/M7EvizTkIAE&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/M7EvizTkIAE&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="241"></embed></object><br><br>Further Reading:<br><br><object width="400" height="241"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/xu0TtqIybsI&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/xu0TtqIybsI&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="241"></embed></object><br><br>Mechanical Trading Strategies and Backtesting.

Definitive technology vs Bose? | Yahoo Answers - 20 Jul 2015 04:59

"Bio-Reference <br><br>Laboratories is a true success story that has culminated in cutting edge <br><br>diagnostic solutions accompanied by a worldwide franchise in the <br><br>diagnosis of rare diseases. GeneDx was the first commercial laboratory <br><br>to offer next generation sequencing for rare disorders and almost a <br><br>quarter of a million patients have benefited from these services <br><br>including almost 20,000 patients who have undergone exome analysis. <br><br>Their newly introduced sequencing services for use in oncology are both <br><br>innovative and impressive."<br><br>"Over the years we have learned that diagnostics are integral to drug <br><br>discovery," commented Marc Grodman, M.D., Bio-Reference Laboratories' <br><br>Chairman, CEO and President.

At <br><br>Bio-Reference Laboratories we have prided ourselves in finding <br><br>disruptive diagnostic solutions that are clinically relevant. Dr. Frost <br><br>is a visionary in the pharmaceutical world who, during a legendary <br><br>career, has demonstrated the foresight to see new clinical applications <br><br>for therapeutics before others.

There are plenty of nerve endings in one's anus that can make anal sex pleasurable so it's very natural to use them for just that. <br><br>But the same way as with a banana, you have to rid the banana of its peel and chew it instead of shoving the whole thing down your throat. You also need to get the muscles in your anus used to having something inserted in them instead of just shoving something in there, don't think that <a href=""></a> it's unnatural because if you didn't have the need <a href=""></a> to get rid of waste then your muscles would not be used to export waste either. You had to allow your muscles to get used to getting rid of waste because of your lifestyle choices(or the lifestyle choices that your parents made for you) and you can allow your muscles to get used to allowing things to enter your anus because of different choices. Nothing unnatural or bad about it. <br><br><object width="400" height="241"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/lvtfD_rJ2hE&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/lvtfD_rJ2hE&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="241"></embed></object><br><br>However things can get bad if you do decide to shove something in there without being careful about what you're inserting there and how you're inserting it. Not to mention stretching your muscles to allow for easier entrance may make them looser(not necessarily weaker, but if you keep huge butt plugs in there for extended periods of time then your muscles may adapt to the new shape and stop trying to tighten together and instead tighten around the plug, which means if you remove the plug your muscles may not close up the hole). <br><br><img style="float:left;margin:10px;border:none;" src="https://c479107.ssl.cf2.rackcdn.com/files/14538/article/width668/j28dtdbf-1345615977.jpg" width="256" /><br><br>Make sure that you wash whatever you're inserting in there before and after, no matter if it's a toy, penis, a finger, a whole <a href=""></a> arm or several of any of them. Take it slow and be sure that the receiving partner is clear about how something feels and if something doesn't feel right, then let the receiving partner decide whether <a href=""></a> you need to stop or do something differently.<br><br><img style="float:left;margin:10px;border:none;" src="http://www.gaebler.com/images/Categories/Technology.jpg" width="372" /><br><br><object width="400" height="241"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/ggK2ZFDTVfQ&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/ggK2ZFDTVfQ&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="241"></embed></object><br><br>[[/html]] - Comments: 0
