Beating the Market in 2010

I grabbed a handful of the Hidden Gems advisors and beat them with baseball bats until they finally agreed to tell me how to beat the market this year. They mostly said my baseball bat method would probably work. 

Ok, surprise! I just made up the baseball bat thing.

I did manage to weasel a few good stock ideas out of the HG guys though, and overall they offered some good big picture perspective by basically saying "You're an idiot, stop worrying about 2010 and invest for the long term." Fortunately, they're all gentlemanly enough to phrase it in a different way than that...

if you have an account thats sized appropriately to allow this:

go all in on MCGC and RJET.  If you want a higher risk/return, make it 50/50 or 67/33 respectively.  If you just want to damn sure as hell beat the market, go all in on MCGC.

that sucker will yeild 10-15% this year, mark my words, and from todays prices 15-18% next year.

it'll eventually trade down to a 8-12% yield, so 50-100% up from here.  I love it.

but its a small cap that, say, a hedge fund really couldn't take a big position in...

No offense checklist, but that sounds like a terrible plan... At least it sounds like far more risk than most investors would be comfortable taking on. Plus, you should have probably noted that MCG currently has no yield and it's conjecture that it will resume its payouts this year.
