Happy Saturday all!
The Greatest Hits collection of links is a bi-weekly one, meaning that this edition wasn’t due for another seven days.
But… it’s been an eventful (to say the least) week in the markets, which led me to do
some a lot of extra reading, which meant I came across quite a few quality reads I wanted to share.
In non-market news, the long-awaited London heatwave is finally here. I’m off for a picnic, followed by a barbeque.
Next week, I’ll be sharing some perspectives on the way forward from here.
In the meantime, I hope you’ve got a nice and relaxing weekend ahead of you – and enjoy the links!

ARK and the art of losing money by chasing performance:
Updated through 4/30/22. The since-incept gap has widened given performance continued to deteriorate, yet investors have largely stayed put (in fact, more flows came in). The avg. dollar in $ARKK lost ~33% since incept while fund gained ~14% over that span. https://t.co/XSO8Mc6OKm pic.twitter.com/OuY7YbLadZ
