As an old investing adage goes, “Everybody’s a genius in a bull market.” It is easy to fall victim to the Dunning-Kruger effect, where attribution bias makes us mistake our luck for abilities. When the business cycles change, there are great problems with precise stock price predictability. And this is not the only problem for humans, who are baffled by many mental heuristics. Machine learning algorithms experience similar problems, too. What is happening, and why is it so? A new paper by Wang, Fu, and Fan gives an explanation and proposes some remedies ...

Music Sentiment and Stock Returns around the World

There was a time in history when researchers believed that we, as a human species, act ultimately reasonably and rationally (for example, when dealing with financial matters). What arrived with the advent of Animal spirits (Keynes) and later Behavioral Finance pioneers such as Kahneman and Tversky was the realization that it is different from that. We often do not do what is in our best interest; quite the contrary. These emotions are hardly reconcilable with normal reasoning but result in market anomalies. Researchers love to find causes and reasons and link behavioral ano ..read more

Which Stock Return Predictors Reflect Mispricing and Which Risk-Premia?
Quantpedia.com Blog
by Cyril Dujava
2M ago
The degree of stock market efficiency is a fundamental question of finance with considerable implications for the efficiency of capital allocation and, hence, the real economy. Return predictability is a cornerstone that allows investors to estimate their returns with ranging precision. Some anomalies allow one to exploit loopholes in global markets and capture substantial alpha, which violates the Efficient Market Hypothesis (EMH). However, whether this alpha arrives from risk premia or its source is mispricing is still puzzling academics around the globe, and they wrap their head around solv ..read more

Portfolio Diversification Including Art as an Alternative Asset
Quantpedia.com Blog
by Cyril Dujava
2M ago
Alternative investment assets (also such as rare vintage and collectible items, expensive old high-quality alcohol, discontinued fashion, etc.) are a hit among wealthy investors, even though it is not easy to obtain direct or indirect exposure to diversified art investment(s) in a traditional finance kind of way. However, alternative assets are helpful in portfolio diversification as they last (if stored properly), usually appreciate in value (but sometimes not very predictably), and have a low correlation to traditional assets like stocks, real estate, gold, or fixed-incom ..read more
