The Popular/Panned (PP) Ratio

March 19, 2018 BY James Paulsen

Bull markets do not age by the clock but rather by their character and often end with investor aggressiveness and the comfort of popularity. In the latter stages of a bull market, confident investors usually prefer hares (i.e., aggressive, fast moving, high beta investments that have been highly successful and are therefore wildly popular), while tortoises (i.e., conservative, high quality, defensive stocks that only widows, orphans, and worrywarts would own) become universally panned!
