I Beg To Differ

Howard Marks’s latest memo argues that investors seeking superior performance must have the courage to depart from the pack, even though doing so means accepting the risk of being wrong.

This means being able to tell when the investment crowd is focused on all the wrong things.The memo is read by LJ Ganser.
