We Are Adapting

Over the last three decades the exponential growth of sophisticated analytic tools, along with significant improvements in the accuracy and size of research databases, has led to tremendous advances in the fields of finance, econometrics, and statistics.  As a result, quantitative portfolio management strategies have become increasingly more effective for all asset classes.  When properly designed and implemented, they can provide more meaningful return, risk, and cost advantages than traditional subjective strategies.  Having gained popularity in recent years, the quantitative trend is expected to continue as investors recognize its disciplined approach can increase the probability of long-term success.  By reducing the investment equation to key time-tested variables, thereby eliminating the subjectivity of human nature, quantitative strategies function in a more optimal manner.

In today’s highly uncertain market environment, no single approach can guarantee future success.  Quantitative strategies help investors more effectively manage their return, risk, and expenses, and can help shift the probability of long-term success more greatly in their favor.

EIA forecasts renewables will be fastest growing source of electricity generation

Published on January 18, 2019

EIA expects non-hydroelectric renewable energy resources such as solar and wind will be the fastest growing source of U.S. electricity generation for at least the next two years. EIA’s January 2019 Short-Term Energy Outlook (STEO) forecasts that electricity generation from utility-scale solar generating units will grow by 10% in 2019 and by 17% in 2020. According to the January STEO, wind generation will grow by 12% and 14% during the next two years. EIA forecasts total U.S. electricity generation across all fuels will fall by 2% this year and then show very little growth in 2020.

According to the STEO, total U.S. natural gas consumption is expected to increase slightly through 2020, with increases in the electric and industrial sectors offsetting decreases in the residential and commercial sectors.

EIA forecasts world crude oil prices to rise gradually, averaging $65 per barrel in 2020

Published on January 16, 2019

EIA’s January Short-Term Energy Outlook forecasts that world benchmark Brent crude oil will average $61 per barrel (b) in 2019 and $65/b in 2020, an increase from the end of 2018, but overall it will remain lower than the 2018 average of $71/b. U.S. benchmark West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude oil prices were $8/b lower than Brent prices in December 2018, and EIA expects this difference to narrow to $4/b in the fourth quarter of 2019 and throughout 2020.

Changes in marine fuel sulfur limits will put temporary upward pressure on diesel margins

Published on January 15, 2019

The January 2019 Short-Term Energy Outlook (STEO), released at noon today, for the first time includes analysis of the effect that upcoming changes to marine fuel sulfur specifications will have on crude oil and petroleum product markets. Beginning January 1, 2020, the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) new regulations limit the sulfur content in marine fuels used by ocean-going vessels to 0.5% by volume, a reduction from the previous limit of 3.5%. The change in fuel specification is expected to put upward pressure on diesel margins and modest upward pressure on crude oil prices in late 2019 and early 2020. EIA’s analysis indicates that the price effects that result from implementing this new standard will be most acute in 2020 and will diminish over time.

Natural gas-burning power plant operations vary during periods of cold weather

Published on January 14, 2019

Power generation in New England and New York is largely dependent on natural gas, which accounts for more than half of the region’s electricity generating capacity. About 58% of New England’s natural gas capacity has dual-fuel capability, meaning it can switch to other fuels such as petroleum-based fuels. Data from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) continuous emissions monitoring system (CEMS) reveals how certain plants in New England and New York switch between fuels in certain situations.

The housing bubble, the credit crunch, and the Great Recession: A reply to Paul Krugman

Published on September 21, 2018

Why was the Great Recession so deep? Certainly, the collapse of the housing bubble was the key precipitating event; falling house prices depressed consumer wealth and spending while leading to sharp reductions in residential construction. However, as I argue in a new paper and blog post, the most damaging aspect of the unwinding bubble was…

Financial panic and credit disruptions in the 2007-09 crisis

Published on September 12, 2018

At the height of the financial crisis a decade ago, economists and policymakers underestimated the depth and severity of the recession that would follow. I argue in a paper released today by the Brookings Papers on Economic Activity (BPEA) that remedying this failure demands a more thorough inclusion of credit-market factors in models and forecasts…
