Blood Doping And Value Averaging





In this Globe and Mail article, I likened Blood Doping (a strategy Lance Armstrong used during the Tour de France) to a contrarian investment strategy called Value Averaging.

If you have an iron will to succeed – and a strong stomach – value averaging might be just the strategy you’re looking for.  

Best of all, it’s legal!

    Hi Andrew

    With the Globe & Mail Strategy series (Value, Growth, Dividend & Index Investing) when are they looking to review portfolio's?

    3 monthly

    6 monthly

    Or just at the end of the series (12 months)?

      Hi Barry,

      Ideally, they should review them after 15 years. I'm competitive, and the longer the contest runs, the higher my odds of winning will be.

      I don't know when they will mention returns. But 1 year returns (even 5-10 year returns) are quite irrelevant, so it becomes nothing more than a distraction, unfortunately.
