Turnkey Tech Investing: May 2019 Market Brief

Between trade conflicts, tweets, earnings reports, tweets, weak data, and more tweets, investors seem both exhausted and confused. And for good reason. As if the US/China trade situation wasn’t enough to ratchet up investor angst in recent weeks, next came the Mexico tariffs right out of left field. Then the market tumbled, then Powell hinted at a possible cut in interest rates to help steady the rocky ship. The current geopolitical environment is adding fuel to the fire, begging the question ...

Gaining Global Robotics Exposure: A Q&A with ROBO Global Director of Research Jeremie Capron

Q. How do you see AI impacting the investment world? Jeremie Capron: As it will in every other industry, I think AI will have a profound impact on the investment business. Recently, we’ve seen some initiatives that use AI to pick stocks by applying machine learning to historical sets of stock trading data. The track record for this sort of application is fairly limited, but we have yet to see any really impressive results. Nor have we seen any major blow-ups, so it will be interesting to watc...

Are you investing in a masterpiece—or a cheap imitation?

Dan Robbins died on April Fools’ Day this year at the age of 93. It seemed somewhat appropriate for the creator of that once favorite American hobby: paint-by-numbers. Robbins came up with the idea back in the 1940s after learning that Leonardo da Vinci had numbered the sections of his canvases to instruct his apprentices where to paint a certain color. The result was a simple, plug-and-play method that allowed even those of us without a creative bone in our bodies to “paint” like an arti...

When a rose is not a rose: Defining the theme of robotics, automation & AI

Just six years ago, ROBO Global was a lonely voice in the world of robotics investing. While many saw robotics, automation, and AI (RAAI) as an exciting theme, almost everyone was quick to recognize the momentous challenge of making sense of this fractured and almost completely unstructured space. Who were the real front-runners? Who were the emerging players? How would the theme unfold in the years to come? It was obvious that with so many moving parts, the answers to these key questions were c...

AI is coming! Investors: Are you ready?

  Artificial intelligence—or AI—is either poised to save the world… or destined to doom it. It all depends on who you talk to on any given day. Proponents of AI see emerging technologies such as machine learning and big data mining as the key to a future in which life is easier, smarter, and faster. Naysayers fear economic disruption, unemployed workers, and a world that puts machines in control. Like religion, it’s a debate that is nearly impossible to win. The reason? AI wil...

When markets correct, the right strategy can help advisors ease investor fears

One of every advisor’s biggest challenges is keeping your clients invested for the long run and sticking to the plan. Typical investor behavior helps to explain why investors want to buy high and sell low. "Investors are 'normal,' not rational," says Meir Statman, one of the leading thinkers in behavioral finance. Investors tend to change risk tolerance based on the direction of the market. For example, investors’ willingness to tolerate risk may fall when markets are falling. Alternatively,...
