Recording & Presentation (Members-Only)
An Applied Behavioral Finance Group Event
Essentially analyzing Buffett’s returns using conventional size, value, and momentum factors haven’t been able to adequately explain his outperformance leaving admirers to conclude that Buffett’s magic is pure alpha. AQR extended the analysis by testing Buffett’s impressive returns — as measured by Berkshire’s stock — against two factors that better reflect his folksy investing wisdom: One called “Betting Against Beta,” which represents safe, low-beta stocks, and another called “Quality Minus Junk,” which represents the stocks of high-quality companies that are profitable, growing, and paying dividends.
