Monkey randomly throwing darts are better stock sellers.

New research revealed that the biggest investors in the world don't make the best decisions when selling stocks.

This came to light when an investor's stock selling decision was compared to a strategy which is almost like throwing a dart at a list of names that exist in their portfolio. If their clients had instead hired the monkey with darts to randomly choose which stocks to sell, the client's portfolios would have earned 0.8 percentage points more per year.

What Is an Inverse ETF?

An inverse ETF is an exchange traded fund (ETF) constructed by using various derivatives to profit from a decline in the value of an underlying benchmark. Investing in inverse ETFs is similar to holding various short positions, which involve borrowing securities and selling them with the hope of repurchasing them at a lower price.

An inverse ETF is also known as a "Short ETF" or "Bear ETF."
