What Should Investors Do Now?

folder_slideWhat Should Investors Do Now? In a multi-part series DFA’s Weston Wellington provides insights into what investors should consider as they move forward.  The videos include an examination of capital markets, the effects of recession and government policy on stock prices, how the current market stacks up to previous downturns, and the reasons why Dimensional’s core beliefs have not changed in light of these events.

Please note: This commentary does not agree with the AIS recommendation that investors include gold-related assets in a well diversified portfolio.  We believe strongly that the diversification benefits of gold outweigh its extreme volatility.  Gold’s lack of correlation to virtually all other asset classes during the recent episode of extreme market distress supports this conclusion.  Our research is independent and the work of DFA is just one source that we draw from.
