Robo Advisors Prove

167 I Paid .25% and All I Got Was An ETF?

Today we're talking about Robo Advisors again.

Don't worry, that's not the only thing we're discussing but we do spend quite a bit of time on that topic. What they're doing almost feels dirty.

Taking a “process” that the investment industry has been doing on paper for 20 years and putting on the web almost feels like something new.


Of course the argument is that it's really inexpensive. But…

Dollar store toilet paper is inexpensive too. Doesn't make it better.

Seriously, can we all stop with the obsession regarding expenses? I'm not saying that expenses don't matter, I'm suggesting they are just one piece of the puzzle.

If that story doesn't tickle your fancy, not to worry, here are all the topics up for discussion today:

Morningstar Decides Style Boxes Are Dead

Robo Advisors Are Biased

American Houses Grow Along Side American Waistlines

Stock Buy Backs Prop Up the Market
