John Hussman Investing Philosophy

Dr. Hussman looks at two dimensions of information to adjust his willingness to take risk.
The first is valuation. Favorable valuation means that stock prices appear reasonable in view of the stream of earnings, dividends, revenues and cash flows expected in the future.
The second dimension is the quality of market action. Market action considers the behavior of a wide range of securities and industry groups in an attempt to assess the economic outlook of investors and their willingness to accept market risk.
These two dimensions of information make up four basic "Market Climates" associated with various combinations of valuation and market action. In the most favorable Market Climates, Dr. Hussman will typically hold an aggressive allocation to market risk, while in the least favorable Market Climates, he will typically attempt to remove the impact of market fluctuations from the portfolio through hedging (Strategic Growth Fund) or reduction in the average maturity of bond holdings (Strategic Total Return Fund). The most defensive position is a fully hedged position in which the entire value of long positions is hedged.
