Slipping back into my regular routine is sometimes a challenge after a few days of traveling. The first day back in the markets — especially following a week like we had to end July and begin August — can be a bit of an adjustment.
A few days away allows the accumulation of jaded skepticism to wane a bit. Hence, the surprise that registered this morning when I read a Wall Street Journal article on “How Individual Investors Can Invest Like a Hedge Fund.” The article goes on to look at three possible ways that an ordinary investor can deploy their capital “like a hedge fund without hefty expenses.”
What it failed to explain is why ordinary investors would or should want to do this.
