For a finance nerd like myself, it doesn't get much better than listening to two investment icons debate about the best way to invest
money. I got the chance to do just that yesterday between the "old school" Yale professor Roger Ibbotson and the "new school"
researcher Robert Arnott. The title of the debate "Can Markets be Timed?" did not actually stir much arguing. Both agreed that it is
impossible to time the markets by knowing when to buy and sell at the exact right times. They also agreed that investors should avoid
the most "popular" stocks in the media because they are often too expensive.
