The world’s greatest company is unlikely to be a good investment if you pay the wrong price for it. But how do you know if you paid the right price? Covering investing topics ranging from human behavior and its impact on stock prices to gambling and stock-specific risk, the New Age Alpha podcast provides listeners with a different approach to portfolio and risk management.

Episode 2: Using Probabilities to Avoid the Losers in Your Portfolio

Probability plays a key role in many aspects of everyday life, yet many people fail to understand the math that guides it. They often approach probabilities in a very flippant way, causing their heuristics and irrational tendencies to lead them to make poor investment decisions. In this episode, New Age Alpha’s CIO, Julian Koski, and Senior Portfolio Manager, Andy Kern, discuss the proper use of probabilities in life and in the stock market, and how to avoid the losers in your portfolio.
