JACK BOGLE: An Elegantly Simple Formula Shows Why Passive Investing Will Earn Higher Returns Than Active Investing

Unfortunately, active fund managers rarely beat the index. Even worse, they charge higher fees. In an FT column earlier this month, David Smith, fund manager at Hargreaves Lansdown Fund Managers wrote that without active managers the world would be poorer and that passive management is a parasitic industry benefiting from the activity of the active investors. In a new FT column , Jack Bogle, founder of Vanguard and a champion of passive investing, takes issue with Smith’s characterization. First, he points out the “elegantly simple formula” that investors should remember when it comes to passive investing. “…Passive index funds typically own the shares of each stock in the market portfolio. Since active managers own all the shares that remain, they too, in aggregate, also own the market portfolio. Owning the same market portfolio, both active and passive managers earn the same gross return. Therefore, the group with the lower fees, lower transaction costs, lower administration costs, and lower marketing costs namely, the passive index funds will earn the higher net return.


Insulin Resistance: Not Just for Old Cushing’s Horses

In addition to analyzing the NHANES data, they surveyed the adolescents regarding ethnicity and lifestyle. They found higher levels of phthalates (or phthalate metabolites) in the urine of certain subsets of the study participants, including females and Mexican-American teens. Teens from higher-income households had lower concentrations of one particular chemical, called LMW, in their urine. Another chemical, called DEHP, was associated with increased insulin resistance in study participants. A significant source of exposure to phthalates is food packaging, although children and adolescents may be exposed through other consumer goods as well. There are alternatives to phthalate-containing plastics for food packaging, such as waxed paper and aluminum foil. It is not known whether insulin-resistant children and teens consume food with a higher phthalate content, or whether insulin-resistant children excrete more DEHP in their urine, but the authors recommend further investigation to determine the effects of dietary phthalate exposures.

Watson, co-director of the University of Washington Medicine Sleep Center, in Seattle, who was not involved in the study.

Kristine Urschel, PhD, assistant professor within UKs College of Agriculture, Food and Environment, noticed this discrepancy and decided to investigate it further. PPID is a problem that may affect as many as 20% of our horses over 20 years of age, she said. For that reason, I felt it was important to look further into this disease, and I specifically wanted to look at whether these horses had lower insulin sensitivity because of PPID or simply because they were old. Urschel contacted Amanda Adams, PhD, assistant research professor at UKs Gluck Equine Research Center. Adams has an established herd of more than 40 aged horses, several of which she suspected had PPID. The researchers identified six horses affected by PPID based on conventional laboratory test results. Then they carefully selected six control horses (of the same age and sex as the PPID horses) that did not test positive for PPID and showed no clinical signs of PPID.

The People’s Bank of China (PBOC) allowed 36 billion yuan ($5.9 billion) to flow into the banking system through its bills and forward bond repurchase agreements maturing on Tuesday, providing further liquidity to the market that had seen short-term borrowing rates soar to record high levels last month. “On top of regulators’ conciliatory attitude, the end of the second quarter has removed the biggest seasonal demand for cash in the inter-bank market,” said a dealer at a major Chinese commercial bank in Shanghai. “Money market rates appear to set to return to normal conditions by around mid-July.” The benchmark weighted-average seven-day bond repurchase rate slumped 69 basis points (bps) to 4.76 percent, its lowest read since June 20, the peak of the liquidity squeeze. It had traded in a 3-4 percent range earlier in the year. The overnight repo rate tumbled 63 bps to 3.79 percent, while the 14-day rate plunged nearly 100 bps to 5.09 percent. China’s central bank allowed short-term borrowing costs to spike to close to 30 percent on June 20, sending a blunt but effective message to overstretched banks that it was determined to bring risky lending under control.

Krill Oil: Unleashing the Health Benefits of Omega-3 Supplements Article and Video Released by Health News Wires

Considering the seemingly endless list of health benefits associated with krill oil, I recommend taking a high-quality krill oil supplement each day

Krill oil is among the most popular of all omega-3 supplements available today. Health News Wires has published an educational article and video that details the Health Benefits of Krill Oil; these benefits include lowering cholesterol and blood pressure, improving brain health and cognitive function, minimizing the symptoms of arthritis, and regulating blood glucose levels.

After years of using fish oil and plant-based sources in omega-3 supplements, new findings are demonstrating the powerful health benefits of krill oil. Specifically, krill oil has higher concentrations of DHA and EPA than traditional fish oils; DHA and EPA are the most important components of omega-3 supplements.

In addition to having higher concentrations of DHA and EPA, krill oil also contains significant amounts of astaxanthin, a powerful natural antioxidant that protects against the dangers associated with free radicals.

DHA contained in krill oil is effective in improving brain health, reaction time, and cognitive function. DHA has also been shown to improve mood, decrease mood swing, and reduce anxiety and depression. Krill oil also lowers the percentage of fat in the heart and liver; protecting against obesity by reducing blood glucose and triglyceride levels.

"Considering the seemingly endless list of health benefits associated with krill oil, I recommend taking a high-quality krill oil supplement each day," said Michael Healey, Health News Wire Health Educator.

By doing this, you’ll cut through the clutter and clearly establish your niche, keeping the interaction focused on the specific subject matter.” Rick Julian, CEO and chief creative officer of Quo Vadis, a startup brand communications agency, says he’s getting a positive return on his investment from using social media sites for the past year. “It puts a human face on your business and allows people to get an impression of what a relationship with you would be like. When all things remain equal, people want to work with people they think they’ll have an interesting relationship with,” Julian says. His firm is represented on five major social networking sites, including YouTube (GOOG) and his blog, and a couple of smaller ones. “Geometric Extension” and Search Optimization It sounds like a full-time job, but Julian points out that you can cut and paste some of your content from site to site. “If I put up a YouTube video to create awareness, I might have some discussion on YouTube with the responders and then also put it on my blog, on my Facebook company page, and promote a link to it on Twitter.
