Check out a used book store or a library to see some of the Motley Fool books from the late 1990's to see what they said about similar newsletters back then.

The rule breaker strategy worked out well for me with AAPL and NFLX ;)

After doing screens for the better part of a decade, I'm mostly in index funds now since, overall, I wasn't beating them.

Picking hot funds or hot strategies is a bit like betting on who made it to the final four last year; someone will make it every year by definition, but that doesn't necessarily point to a long term winner.
