Shadox at the Money and Such blog recently posted a blog entry entitled Passive Investing Is for Extremists: The Critque.
Juicy Excerpt: His main claim relates no so much to how you invest in stocks, but rather to the percentage of your portfolio that is invested in this asset class, regardless of which stocks or stock funds you put your money into. I think that it is more correct to say that Rob is against passive asset allocation, than he is against passive investing as I understand it.
Shadox became my favorite personal finance blogger with the posting of his skeptical but fair and balanced critique.
Juicy Excerpt: I’ve been writing about these issues on the internet on a daily basis for seven years now. It has been a rare event in that time for me to see someone coming at these questions from the other side to respond to my presentation of them in a manner as intelligent and balanced as yours. I am not a flatterer. I say that in all sincerity. I am very impressed.
