Nine Experts, Four Surprises, and One Million Dollar Bet

For many investors, 2017 was a paradox. The harder they tried to enhance their results by basing investment decisions on current events, the more likely they failed to capture the rate of return the capital markets delivered.

Dimensional Fund Advisors Vice President Weston Wellington's article entitled "Nine Experts, Four Surprises, and One Million Dollar Bet," is a great read providing a healthy dose of reality and perspective. Wellington's piece not only tells you where the experts got it wrong, but also addresses "The Million Dollar Bet" made between Warren Buffet, chairman of Berkshire Hathaway, Inc., and Ted Seideds, a New York hedge fund consultant. If you aren't familiar with this public challenge, made by Buffet, you may want to read this.

Many of you will recall that Weston spoke at our 2015 Speakers' Forum and Reception held at California State University (stay tuned for details of our 2018 event coming later this year). Weston was one of our most popular speakers and as such we thought this article might be of particular interest to you.
