    Having read Meb's books already I can say these are worth a read if you're into macro / global investing. The books are also quite easy to get through in one go and cover topics quite well without dragging on and on.

    He's also worth following on twitter if you're into markets / trading.

      Does he have a record better than monkeys throwing darts at stock picks for any length of time?

        He's not so much a hedge fund trader, more trades his own money using his research results. He is also more of a sector / country macro investor, so individual stocks are rarely a part of his process.

        He does run several ETF's which employ his research / methods (6 or more now I think). His books are generally comparisons of methods and results - so the answer is also in the books. He is also a long term investor so results also have decent time frames involved.

          A concise and informative reply. I will consider reading this based off what you say as he doesn't sound like the many charlatans that surround 'investing'.

        He is a value quant that uses simple rules like the 200 day sma

        Has a few etfs that have been launched prematurely - GVAL for example has no currency hedging because he neglected to consider the effect a weakening USD had on his backtests
        QMOM uses the cape ratio and 1 year momentum on individual stocks - Theres no logical reason to use cape other than differentiating your etf

        Like anything… make sure to test results yourself before taking things for granted
        Wouldnt be by number 1 pick but there are worse guys out there

          Source?

          QMOM uses the cape ratio and 1 year momentum on individual stocks - Theres no logical reason to use cape other than differentiating your etf

          Many people believe differently. What's your reasoning?

          @Dacs:
          Because historical and recent results are poor (VAMO and GVAL are both underperforming)
          Ignoring the debt in a company valuation makes no sense (ev/ebitda, ev/ebit or even price to tangible book are much better choices)
          Investing in companies that have held a low pe ratio for several years is flawed because a chronically low pe usually means that there is something fundamentally wrong(i.e fmg holding huge amounts of debt or chinese companies that noone trusts)

          Source = Search on SSRN and you will find that the guy who wrote a paper with meb said that us investors should hedge for currency

          Meant VAMO earlier instead of QMOM

    Thanks! Have heard this guy speak - very interesting investing approach that makes a lot of sense. Interested in us US based GVAL fund that buys up unpopular value stocks in beaten up economies.
