Seriously...I promise there is no conspiracy to have an entirely TMF staff top 10, but I can see where you would think that over the last month with Babo joining the advisor staff.

As you can see, UltraLong has been ugraded by Goldman Sachs to TMFUltraLong. I've been writing articles on individual stocks, sectors and the overall economy since mid-September for the Fool and I'm going to expand that by writing even more. Don't worry, I won't be neglecting my usual series of blogs on CAPS and you can expect them to be as sarcastic as normal. Here's to continued success... let's all make some money!

What the heck...  here I schlepp and schlepp...  Literally injuring myself for the sake of producing entertaining blogs... and what do I get?  A fat lot of nothing.

 

I think instead of hoisting proven winners, like yourself, up on a pedestal TMF should start taking lost souls like me under its wing. I'd gladly journal the process and be the ivory tower messager.

 

Just think of what a great blog series it would make.... "How I learned to stop worrying and love quantitative easing" or "BrickCityMan goes to Alexandria" or ...  Just think it over is all I'm asking...

 

... Surely you know this is (mostly) in jest.  Congratulations to you and I look forward to many more of your blog posts.... 

 

PS - If you ever get to meet that guy "Otto" while at fool HQ please give him a piece of my mind.  I'm beginning to think he's ignoring me...  ;-)

Blesto,

I do plan to get around to that.... but then again, there's nothing you can learn on a profile page about me that you can't learn from reading my blogs on CAPS.

Ask a blunt man should be a once a year thing I figure...so yes, we will probably have one coming up soon.

Congrats! You became a Fool before me, so it feels a bit weird to congratulate you.  I liked your piece on the iPhone parts suppliers, btw.   

@Bays: Thanks! Don't worry about commenting on my blog - I always read every comment, even if I can't respond to every single one (especially on that last post).

HarryCarysGhost,

Not ignoring you...just writing and beating my dog up now and then. I don't see any reason we need to go away from "UL" but TMFUL would be a mouthful but acceptable too =)

Nice cinematographic reference. One of the greatest movies and of one of the greatest directors in the history of film, IMO.

Very cool.

And my condolences on being a Lions and Tigers fan. At least you have the Red Wings.

Now the thing I was most interested in, and I think it's in the Fool's disclosure, is that all TMF'rs list the actual stocks they own.

Cheers-n-Beers

Blesto,

I do plan to list my holdings... when I have them. At the moment I am 100% cash. Understand that when my mom was diagnosed with cancer I essentially pooled everything to pay for some of her procedures. She didn't have insurance and I was her sole provider, so I made sure to take care of her first. Since her passing in August I haven't actively managed an account. I have my eye on a few things, but nothing has hit my target levels... yet. Keep checking that profile page and I'm sure you'll be graced with a few picks over the next few weeks, lol

Yo, I'm would love to have a peek at your personal portfolio UL, cannot wait will it's posted :D

I'm a keen follower of your picks. You did me proud on PVTB (which you predicted flawlessly) earlier this year. Ooo and a female condom company that I can't even remember the ticker but it was a great run ooo and CSKI round 1.

Current strong performers I'm holidng that you brought to my attention are MCZ and KAZ.- MCZ i'm loving right now!

Only poor performance I've had has been APWR but hey-ho, i knew it was a gamble when I invested and i'm holding on all the same. Just hope there's not too much of a shock when they finally release their earnings after setting it back for unknown reasons...

 All in all though UL you've helped me make ends meet this year. I feel the least I can do is say TY!

JimBobbly,

That female condom company is Female Health (FHCO). Remember that I didn't do anything, you made the choices to buy and sell these companies.
