"Buy not on optimism, but on arithmetic." Benjamin Graham


Hi Folks,

The Second Edition of The 12% Solution was released in the latter part of 2019. Among the changes:

  • Two additional years of backtesting, bringing the total to 12 years.

  • New chapter titled: "Buy And Hold: A Reality Check."

  • Additional Q&As.

  • "Appendix A" detailing an extended backtest using ETF proxies (mutual funds).

A reminder: The 12% Solution is an easy, do-it-yourself asset allocation strategy that adapts regularly to changes in market conditions. We make 2-4 trades a month. The strategy tells us what to buy and what to sell. Then, we turn off our computers and go live our lives.

Don't yet have the book? Buy it on AMAZON.COM.
