Michael Covel talks with Tadas Viskanta. Viskanta is the founder and editor of the Abnormal Returns blog and a private investor with 20-plus years of experience. His first book, "Abnormal Returns: Winning Strategies from the Frontlines of the Investment Blogosphere", is out now. Viskanta calls his blog a "forecast free investment blog", and that sort of outlook certainly appeals to Covel and his trend following philosophy. Covel and Viskanta cover a wide range of topics, from investment philosophies and strategies to the challenges authors and bloggers face in the world today. Specifically, Covel and Viskanta discuss the disadvantage given to those who follow the constant data stream from the media; why Viskanta felt the need to write "Abnormal Returns", and the strategy and style behind it; the phrase "abnormal returns" and trying to measure returns over and above the risk taken; underperforming; preparing for abrupt change in the markets; Viskanta's move from value investing to a more systematic strategy--and Covel's early experiences with value investing material; now that so many global barriers are easy to cross, why so many people have "home bias" and difficulty placing global investments; why people still look at the markets with rose colored lenses and so easily forget the bubbles of the past; the behavior gap; why having a suboptimal strategy that you can follow in a systematic way is better than having no strategy at all; the ramifications of instant feedback in the blogosphere; and why you need a burning desire to be an author today. Yes, some territory is covered! Free DVD: www.trendfollowing.com/win.
