Episode 57 with Vitaliy Katsenelson

What is a sideways market and are we in one? Accredited Investor Markets Radio speaks with Vitaliy Katsenelson, CFA and host of Contrarian Edge podcast, about a different take on market trends and active value investing. Vitaliy conceives of periodic “sideways markets,” like the one at present, in which P/E ratios go from much above to much below average.  In such a market, an investor does not maximize value by riding the tide. For more, please listen.
