Be a Profitable Contrarian
Mark Hulbert

Mark Hulbert is legendary in the financial world. He founded the Hulbert Financial Digest in 1980, and for the nearly four decades since then he has objectively rated the performances of hundreds of investment advisory newsletters. Surprise! He found that, when tracked in real time, most advisers badly underperform the market. Only 8% of the advisers he tracked for 34 years outperformed the S&P 500. Meanwhile, 25% lagged behind the market in that period, and 67% actually ceased publication — mainly due to bad returns.

Now Hulbert is bringing us everything he's discovered over the years, but in an all-new format. You can be one of the first to learn about this new era of investing wisdom, straight from the master himself, in his only public appearance in Washington State.

Hulbert will devote the first half of his presentation to reviewing the many investment lessons he draws from advisers' dismal long-term returns. Perhaps the most compelling of those lessons is that the average transaction any of us undertakes is something we will grow to regret. Hulbert will discuss the contrarian implications of that lesson in the second half of his presentation, showing how we can improve our investment performance by carefully tracking—and then resisting—the consensus of short-term market timers in the stock, gold and bond markets.

This exclusive three-hour seminar is expected to fill up. Register now to claim your seat. After all tickets have been reserved, no additional attendees can be admitted.

Mark Hulbert has been a senior columnist for MarketWatch since 2002. He also has regular investment columns in The Wall Street Journal, Barron's and USA Today. He previously was the "Strategies" columnist for the Sunday New York Times and, before that, was a biweekly columnist for Forbes magazine.
