Fat Pitch Investing

Ted Williams studied the game more than any other player. As he analyzed hitting and pitching, he was struck by a career changing epiphany: although baseball rules had an official strike zone and players were taught to swing at every pitch that swept into the box, Ted recognized that every batter had his own sweet spot that vastly increased his odds of getting a hit. So he let the high heat go by, patiently waiting for what he called The Fat Pitch.

The analogy for investing is that the truly great investment managers let the vast array of potential opportunities go by, waiting patiently to seize those that are squarely in their sweet spot of expertise. These are the next generation Warren buffets we bring into the Marketocracy team. A team of long term proven all stars. 

Like professional baseball teams, Marketocracy recruits the best from an extensive farm system in which people must prove themselves by outperforming the S&P 500 by an average of 10% a year for at least 5 years before they can manage money for clients of Marketocracy Capital Management LLC, a registered investment advisor.

Team Highlights as of September 30, 2011

  • Jack Weyland, a healthcare investor, has a 5 year annualized return of over 20% easily outperforming Morningstar’s top healthcare fund - T. Rowe Price Health Sciences - which averaged just over 3% a year.

  • Justin Uyehara, a swing trader, has a 5 year annualized return of over 24%, while the S&P 500 has been flat.

  • Randy McDuff, a value investor, has a 5 year annualized return of over 9% compared to Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway A shares which averaged about 3%.

The key to Fat Pitch Investing is to let proven investors go to bat for you so they can hit it out of the park.

"The box shows my particular preferences, from what I considered my "happy zone" - where I could hit .400 or better - to the low outside corner - where the most I could hope to bat was .230. Only when the situation demands it should a hitter go for the low-percentage pitch."

- Ted Williams
