newsletters that make predictions are guessing - just like everyone else.

As much as I enjoy the Fool...and as much as I have learned as a member of the Fool...I don't think that they can predict the future either. I wish they could, but they can't.

So...how much substance do you need?


Bill,
Your financial advice is great. I don't disagree with any of it. I started out with the Coffeehouse investor myself. But you still don't reflect any actual knowledge about the Champion Funds newsletter in your comments. You refer in passing to newsletters that "predict the future." That's not what the CF is about. Check it out and see for yourself. I'm still not convinced that it's worth subscribing on a long term basis, but it's at least knowing what kind of content it has. What it's useful for is to help a new investor (who wants to invest in mutual funds) to identify what the philosophies are of different funds. There's actually quite a bit of difference between managed funds. Now, perhaps you don't believe in managed funds; that's fine. But if someone is going to invest in managed funds, the Champion Funds newsletter is at least a good starting point. There are others, too, though.
