Devesh Shah's April commentary

Ben
edited April 3 in Fund Discussions
I found two oddities in Devesh Shah's April commentary. A passive vs active poll is mentioned twice but I cannot find it. I am using Safari as a web browser. There is a big blank space above the charts at the bottom. Perhaps that is where the poll is supposed to be (?). I tried viewing the poll using Firefox. I got a smaller blank space and then this message below it:

And when I click to Open In A New Window I am taken to another window where I am asked to sign in to a mysterious Google account of some sort.

Something is amiss.

Also there was a puzzling comment that a certain active fund which has yearly taxed distributions might work in a tax deferred account. OK. But surely it would work well in a Roth IRA account, especially one that was set up early in history of Roth IRAs. I don't see the downside of investing in a well-performing active mutual fund that is never going to create a taxable distribution. Am I missing something ?

  • The poll problem is not Devesh's. I screwed something up in the setup but can't figure out what, and Chip is in Chicago on conference. My current plan is to wait for her return and, if we can fix the error, I will resend the link to the poll by mass email.

    Thanks!

  • @Ben: I think the term « tax advantaged » would have been more precise as it covers all types of retirement savings instruments, including both common forms of the IRA.
