Daniel Solin devised a simple strategy described in his book, "The Smartest Portfolio You'll Ever Own", based on the research of Professors Fama and French. The strategy uses nine low cost funds in various allocation percentages depending on the investor's risk tolerance. The choice of funds is designed to provide diversification and benefit from the long term superior performance of small cap and value stocks. (The author does not believe in market timing of any kind).  Read the details on your tablet for only $9.99. You don't need a Kindle - just download the Kindle software for your Android device here or your iPad here.
