    When good defensive investments go bad - Cuffelinks

    i expected a severe downturn in 2013 , and made several ( counterintuitive ) defensive investments which actually flourished in the good times ( call it dodging an artillery shell )

    the main problem for me is that my strategy still hasn't been properly 'crash-tested '

    so while in theory everything LOOKS like there is a back-up plan in place , what actually happens when the plan is under stress ??
