"Brokers" is a good name for them.
Just like the "Used Car Dealers". They now use " Pre Owned".

Do you ever ask your:BROKER" how much of the stock that they are trying to sell you, they own?
I'm happy to be buying my own.

Thank you, the Sicilian!

Brokers are brokers. They have one up on automobile dealers (who are also brokers) because they only make money when you buy and sell. If you buy and hold they are treading water. Their interest is different from the analysts who make their money by coming up with winning strategies that work today, tomorrow, and on. If you listen to brokers, they will get a chunk of your cash.

Truthfully, the fact that this is the top underperform pitch for AFAM says quite a bit. Isn't there anyone out there with a credible, good underperform pitch that can say something sensible? No? Hmm... must be why the bull to bear ratio for CAPS is 855 to 29...
