He is a prize-winning researcher of a dozen scholarly articles and holder of a Fabozzi/Jacobs Levy Award; his 1970s theoretical research led to the price-to-sales ratio, now a standard part of the financial curriculum.

In this presentation, Ken will display the what and why of several semi-predictable outcomes of American elections, why most market seers must always be wrong, have been this year and will continue to.  Then, he will delve into the most basic market lesson to learn from the COVID-19 experience that you can apply broadly to other market phenomena, and why the 2020’s weak 1st half, tied to 2019, tells you nothing about it’s back half.  Ken will further delve into more specific views about how he sees markets for the back half of 2020 and into 2021 focusing on tools he has long utilized including the Pessimism of Disbelief and Confirmation Bias.
