Be careful which Fools you trust
Yesterday I was looking around for some good long ideas by scouting many of the top players to see what they are doing. However, long ideas were few and far between among the higher rated players. There were a few high score players with a history of going long, don't get me wrong. But it seems that many of these other players have taken the easy route to a 99 rating by shorting the ultra shorts which over time is bound to be a winner. But this is not realistic for obvious reasons. So my point is that while you may see a 99 going long on a stock it might be a good idea to see if he's earned that score from going long other stocks or simply shorting their way to the top. A high score on this game doesn't always translate into a good long term investor, in fact, it may be the exact opposite.
