Turnaround Mutual Funds: Scarcity Proves Merit of Turnaround Strategy

Excerpted from the October 2012 Issue
October 18, 2012

As contrarians, The Turnaround Letter’s approach is simple: We avoid the “blue chips” and “hot” stocks that most investors are clamoring to buy—instead seeking out companies that have had some problems, and are temporarily out-of-favor, but are in the process of turning around.

Actually, it is the title of a book written in 1940 by a former Wall Street employee named Fred Schwed, Jr. The title refers to a story about person admiring the yachts owned by bankers and brokers who asks where the customers' yachts were. Of course, the customers, who had dutifully followed the advice of the bankers and brokers, couldn’t afford yachts. This just goes to show that there is nothing new about the attitude that Goldman Sachs employees were purported (probably accurately) to have about their clients.
