Bob Brinker claims to have a market timing model that will tell you when to remain fully invested in the stock market, and when you should take your money out of the stock market. It's that simple. He claims you can beat the market by following his advice.

And how do you know he should have told subscribers to get out?

How do you know the investments he's currently recommending to his newsletter subscribers aren't doing well enough for him to think they should stay in them?

Then there's the minor little problem of what to do with the cash once the stocks are sold. What did Bob Brinker suggest subscribers do with the money they pulled out of the market last time?

Your argument is based on the premise that Brinker should have recommended a change in investments for his subscribers. I'm not sure Mr. Brinker would agree with you on that.

Also, since we are both (now) non-subscribers, it may be that Bob Brinker has indeed recommended a change in investment strategy to his subscribers since he typically doesn't announce those changes to the general public (radio listeners) until a week or so after he signals his subscribers.
