Carnival of Passive Investing #32 - July 2013 Edition Now Live at A Rich Life

The 32nd (July 2013) edition of the Carnival of Passive Investing is now live on A Rich Life at the link below. A big thanks to Rob over at that site for hosting this time around!

Carnival of Passive Investing # 32 - July 2013 Edition

Thanks to everyone for participating. Congrats to this month's top 3 picks (shown below)!

1) Jason Hull presents The Stock Market Is Irrational. Does This Mean You Can Take Advantage Of It? at Hull Financial Planning. 
I fully believe that the market is irrational. I also believe that there’s probably someone out there who is killing it in the market because he’s cracked the code and knows how to take advantage of all of the irrationality of retail investors. I’m convinced that he’s not going to sell you that information in a $397 course or webinar, either, and get rid of his investing advantage.

2) David presents Diversification: Why Not Put Everything  in Whatever Will Go Up the Most? at Marotta on MoneyIn any given month, the diversified portfolio never performed better than all of the five indexes. Asset allocation means always having something to complain about. It will never “win.” Not even one month. This is an obvious result of diversification. The diversified portfolio is a weighted average of all five underlying indexes. It can’t possibly be better than all of its components. It will always lose to something. On average it comes in third or fourth (of the six) each month.

3) Rowan Wellington presents What Is Efficient Market Pricing in the Securities Markets? at The Skilled Investor. The preponderance of evidence is that securities markets are efficient and tend to reflect available information. Whether you believe markets are efficient is very important to your decisions about appropriate investment strategies and tactics.
