An update

Many thanks for visiting my blog. I have now returned to work full time with Soc Gen. I'm afraid I will not have the time to update this blog. My thoughts on behavioural finance and value investing will now be published by Soc Gen. In fact they have already published three - on simplicity, underperformance and action bias. If you are an institutional investor who would like access to my work please let me know.

Wishing you all the very best

James

Refer to your article "The Dash To Trash And The Grab For Growth"

The Dash To Trash And The Grab For Growth

Mind Matters
15 January 2008
by James Montier
What a difference a week makes! Recession talk is everywhere. This begs the question, are markets priced for such a possibility? We would suggest the answer is a resounding no. Valuation and cyclical risk are enormous. Yet, investors pile on the pressure by believing they can tell 'true' growth stocks from young pretenders. Simultaneously, investors seem to have transformed into speculators. This creates opportunities for those with the discipline to stick to their long-term process. Such investors are likely to find comfort in cash, if they are allowed. Failing that, large cap dividend paying stocks are probably the best place to hide.

James,

If you get a chance, could you check out www.alphatheory.com? I developed this product while working for a long/short equity fund that made many of the cognitive bias mistakes that typical investors make. I built Alpha Theory to, as you say it, "adopt an investment process that is at least partially robust to behavioural decision-making errors." If you like the concept, I would like to discuss further.

Thanks,

Cameron Hight

You can contact me through the website if you have an interest.

Hi James,

I have been reading books on behavioral finance for 10 years now, including your behavioral finance book, as well as the much more boring and drawn out behavioral books by Thaler and other in academics. You do a great job of simplifying and teaching the lessons of behavioral finance. I got my MBA in finance in 1996 and trying to get away from efficient market hypothesis ever since. Thus my interest in behavioral finance ever since. I also have been a shareholder of Berkshire Hathaway since 1995. I was skeptical of the efficient market even before i graduated. I think behavioral finance is much closer to the truth and the way human's think and the markets work.

Being a investor and a poker player though I would like to point out one mistake in your book "The Little Book of Behavioral Investing." As a poker player I am always trying to put myself in positive expected value (EV) situations. On page 21 and 22 you give a expected value (EV) example. The math was wrong though. If you expect in a fair coin toss to win $2.50 if it comes up heads and lose $1 if it comes up tails your expected value is 75cents not $1.25 per round. $2.50-$1 divided by 2 gives you a expected value of 75c per round.

Your books are great thou. Keep up the good work.

Hi James,

I am the author of 'Technical Analysis and the Active Trader' a book that explains the many deficiencies of technical analysis. In that book I apply the lessons from behavioural finance to T/A and all trading and explain some ways that traders can overcome the biases and heuristics.

I have just read your 'Little Blue Book..." and believe there are many similarities between our views.

As background I was a derivatives trader in London for 13 years.

I would be keen to discuss these issues further with you as I am currently writing another book.
