Austin, Texas (PRWEB) January 30, 2013
Gary D. Halbert, investment professional and author of the weekly Forecasts & Trends E-Letter, has released a new Special Report explaining why individual investors should seek “absolute return” investment portfolios. Unlike strategies that seek to perform well relative to an index or other benchmark, absolute return strategies seek to provide positive growth regardless of the direction of the stock or bond markets.
With all of the uncertainty in today’s economy and markets, investors are increasingly looking for strategies that are designed to meet their individual investment goals rather than just performing well compared to broad market indexes. An absolute return portfolio is an active approach as compared to passive, buy-and-hold strategies that can subject an investor to considerable risk.
Halbert noted, “With this Special Report, it is my goal to educate investors about the benefits of absolute return strategies and how they can be used to reduce the threat of emotional trading that often occurs after a substantial drop in value, a situation all too common in passive strategies.”

In addition to his weekly E-Letter, Mr. Halbert publishes Between the Lines that seeks to provide more timely information regarding the markets, economics and the effect of politics and geopolitics on both. He analyzes the latest economic news, markets and political trends to bring you stories that have an impact on your lifestyle, your future and your pocketbook.
