If you’re a regular reader of my blog and/or our firm’s publication, you understand of my passion for money-weighting, when it comes to subportfolio profits especially. I’m teaching classes this week for a client and when we discussed subportfolio returns and my preference for money-weighting, students asked what the GIPS (Global Investment Performance Standards) rules was regarding this topic. In general, GIPS is silent as it pertains to subportfolio earnings; the one exception is for carve-outs.
But even here, there is absolutely no explicit necessity, but it’s worth considering how exactly we should deal with them. While I favor using MWRR for subportfolio results generally, in this (possibly only) case, I’d claim that TWRR is might know about do. And why is this? Well, consider what a carve-out is meant to be doing: we’re taking, for example, the equity part of a balanced collection and putting it into an equity composite. If there are accounts in the composite, which are only committed to equities, their profits are assessed using TWRR. And, the carved-out part is meant to represent what could have happened had the property been managed separately, and not as part of a balanced profile. Therefore, TWRR makes sense.
Ambac will likely determine a big chunk of my collection performance over the next 3 years. If the original investment thesis retains and if Ambac dilutes shareholders early next 12 months, I’ll likely add (I’ll look favorably upon any exchange-traded convertible bonds or warrants). I might always change my brain but that’s my plan for the time being.
In fact, these catalysts can sometime make a space bigger, by nourishing into prices momentum. As a buyer, I look for catalysts while I invest, but I am more intention on finding them even, when I sell brief than once I am a stock long. 220, in the beginning of trading on Friday (9/21), but while I’ve not sold short any longer shares. 230 (roughly my 90th percentile of value) in the near future. A Follow-up on Uncertainty and Catalysts!
Coloradans will vote on such a ballot initiative in November. Single-payer healthcare is the most effective route to general coverage, argued Stephanie Woolhandler, co-founder of Physicians for a National Health Program. Government spending on health programs would initially rise, but it would be offset by a reduction in premiums and out-of-pocket costs later, she said.

A Medicare buy-in or community option wouldn’t be effectively because the machine would not realize the same administrative and drug-cost savings available through a single-payer system. “I believe we, like the nurses, feel you merely can’t pretend we’ve solved the problem here with the Affordable Care Act,” Woolhandler said.
“What we now have is not just a solution. We’ve people dying still. Drug costs, which have come under significant political pressure in this election cycle, were another focus of the witnesses speaking to the drafting committee.
