Volatility Views 60:  Jackass Investing: Don't Do It. Profit From It.

Volatility Review: NASDAQ overview over the last month, since our last show. How low can the vol go? A buyers opportunity. 

Volatility Viewpoint: Today's guest is Mike Dever, Founder and CEO of Brandywine Asset Management, and author of Jackass Investing: Don't Do It. Profit From It. He starts with his unique approach to volatility. Is it possible, given such broad correlation among asset classes, to be able to really diversify? The book says you can increase returns, while reducing risk at the same time. Is this preaching the wisdom of using derivatives? The "loser's concept." What does he say to readers who are concerned about the current state of regulation and oversight in options and derivatives?
