MUSEUM NEWS   THE TICKER On October 3, the Museum co-hosted its fourth event this year with the Ford- ham University Gabelli Center for Global Security Analysis. Howard Marks, one of the most successful Wall Street investors of all time, spoke to a sold-out audience of Museum members and Gabelli Center faculty and alumni about his new book, Mastering the Market Cycle: Getting the Odds on Your Side. The program was part of the Museum’s highly-acclaimed Evening Lecture Series, and it was live streamed in partnership with the CFA Society of New York. The program was presented in a conversation format, with Bloomberg Television’s Erik Schatzker conducting the interview. Howard Marks is the co-chairman and co-founder of Oaktree Capital Manage- ment, a Los Angeles-based investment firm with over $100 billion in assets under management. He provided practical insight and analysis on how to under- stand, track and react to the ups and downs of the stock market, including the hidden logic in carefully pinpointing market trends so that investors have the opportunity to improve their results. He also stressed the importance of carefully studying past market cycles, as well as the role that fundamental psychological influ- ences play in investing.
