What's on at Eureka Report and model portfolio updates

We take a look at the power of shorting, while Eureka Interactive resumes for 2016.

 “Highly volatile markets” may well rank as something to be afraid of, especially if you are investing strictly on a long-only basis: In other words you don’t have any hedging in your share portfolio. In a fascinating piece today, Mitch Sneddon discovers in an analysis of his own portfolio of Listed Investment Companies that the LICs who can “short” outperform those who can’t. It’s an outcome that is exceptionally timely as we face the rockiest start to the calendar year for a long time.

Later this week, Eureka subscribers will have a chance to put questions directly to some leading LIC managers about their ability to “short”, or to protect their investors through any other means (holding cash for example).
