This week’s latest memo from Howard Mark’s of Oaktree Capital is a must read, as opposed to most articles which are about “Bubble! Bubble!” or “This is 2007!”, there is a far more nuance and thought in his analysis and I’ll show this short quote below, and highly recommend you read the rest of his memo.
In short, its my belief that when investors take on added risks – whether because of increased optimism or because they’re coerced to do so (as now) – they often forget to apply the caution they should. That’s bad for them. But if we’re not cognizant of the implications, it can also be bad for the rest of us.
