This week, the “Masters in Business” radio podcast features Mebane Faber, chief investment officer of Cambria Investments.

Faber explains how his investing approach has evolved from his days as a biotech analyst to becoming a quant "lite." He describes how exchanged-traded funds are developed and marketed, and the typical mistakes that many investors make.

His books include "The Ivy Portfolio," "Shareholder Yield: A Better Approach to Dividend Investing," and most recently, "Global Value: How to Spot Bubbles, Avoid Market Crashes, and Earn Big Returns in the Stock Market."

 Listen to the podcast at Bloomberg, on Apple iTunes or SoundCloud. All of our prior podcasts are now available on iTunes.

Next week, we speak with Charles Ellis, former chairman of the Yale Endowment Fund, and author of "Winning the Losers Game."
