Lazy Portfolios Revisited

Posted By Jim On 10/27/2008 @ 12:26 pm In Investing | 2 Comments

MarketWatch used to only visit lazy portfolios every once and a while (it was hard to justify looking at “lazy” portfolios that performed well when you could point out far sexier returns on sub-prime mortgages!) but with the recent financial woes, Paul Farrell had been checking on them more often. It looks like they’ve turned it into a section on the Marketwatch site and the lazy portfolios aren’t performing very well [3] (not surprising but better than their benchmark, the S&P 500!).

The new Lazy Portfolio center tracks eight lazy portolios:

  • Aronson Family Taxable
  • Fundadvice Ultimate Buy & Hold
  • Dr. Bernstein’s Smart Money
  • Coffeehouse
  • Yale U’s Unconventional
  • Dr. Bernstein’s No Brainer
  • Margaritaville
  • Second Grader’s Starter

For those who aren’t familiar with Lazy Portfolios, they’re allocations of popular index funds. I did a whole writeup on some popular lazy portfolios [4] including Scott Burns’ Couch Potato portfolio and Margaritaville portfolio.
