Barry Ritholtz, chief executive at quantitative research firm Fusion IQ, in a Forbes interview says the firm is long the market and its holdings include exchange traded funds tracking the total stock market and dividend stocks. “We’re now about 86% long and have been for some time,” said Ritholtz, who also writes The Big Picture, a popular blog.

“We’ve played around with a handful of other names,” Ritholtz said, mentioning SPDR S&P Dividend ETF (NYSEArca: SDY), a basket of dividend stocks. Some of the more conservative portfolios wanted to have access to dividends,” he said. “In a conservative way, that’s been a nice holding for us. It’s worked out well.”
