Are there important legal considerations for blog posts?

September 23, 2009 – Comments (8)

This has been a continual question for me, and probably others.  What do caps members need to be careful about saying in a blog post?  Can we be held liable for non-personalized stock advice?  How does disclosing what stocks we own factor into our legal position?  [more]

This post will detail why I think my automated stock picking system is the greatest thing since oversized pickles at movie theaters.  After providing a brief history and summary of how the model works, it will detail the results of my various portfolios based on the model.  [more]



Results of the Liquidation experiment.

I dont know if any of you remember, but on July 20th I began testing the value of using a companies liquidation value as a investing screen.  I tested the Ben Graham version of liquidation value against a community created version.  Its been about 2 months now, and the results are fairly surprising.     [more]



I'm willing to admit that I may not always be right, but I am never wrong. - Samuel Goldwyn

Several months ago the Motley Fool boards were lambasted with Debbie Downer (notice I didn't say doom and gloomer) blog posts about how the markets were going to collapse and joining them, in shorting leveraged ETFs, was your only ticket out of Vietnam.  Well.....  Over the last several days we have seen a slow trickle of painful posts about how these Heroes of the Apocalypse (is that better than Debbie Downer?) have begun covering short positions.  Although, none of this is particularly surprising, I am amazed at how openly these "Followers of the Great Alstry" flaunt their ability to avoid learning simple lessons from this experience.  While their satirical posts are very enriching, it would be nice if we could see some actual key learning's gained from this giant sized kick in the @ss.  [more]



An in depth analysis of the Portefeuille6 portfolio. (Is there a method to his madness?)

September 11, 2009 – Comments (36)

Yesterday I boldy announced I would do an in depth investigation of the top fool of the days portfolio.  Well....  Everdayinvestor won, but since his current portfolio is a joke, I cheated and chose the Portefeuille6 portfolio for the analysis.  I chose port6 for a few reasons: 1) I figured anyone with the volume of picks he has, must have a mechanical approach to finding picks. 2) He was ranked in the top ten yesterday, and had portfolio nearly full of green thumbs. 3) I respect his ability at this game.  [more]



Are top fools injecting their portfolios with performance enhancing picks?

September 10, 2009 – Comments (11)

The easy answer is: "Yes".  But where is the fun in that?  I think it would be much more interesting to perform a complete "tox screen" on top performing portfolios and try to diagnose the metrics they have used to gain that extra burst of performance that propelled them past the competition and into fooldom.    [more]
