Every year, my colleague Josh Brown puts out a collection of "Investment Fads and Themes." This year is no different.
His half dozen themes for 2013 (in no particular order) are Elon Musk Stocks, Smart Beta, Long Nikkei/Short Yen, Bitcoin, Buybacks, and Carl Icahn: American Badass.
Rather than try to explain any of these, I will instead suggest you check out the multicolored chart attached, then read Josh’s full commentary here. Makes for good weekend reading!
