John Templeton used to say he had no clue if the market would go up or down. And if John Templeton couldn’t figure it out, I sure can’t. I try to emulate his strategy.

Howard,

You did imply that MBIA was a buy. Or why did you post a favorable comment without also pairing it with an unfavorable one?

Templeton didn't say what are saying he said. You're putting words into his mouth. He knew quite well that "markets would go up or down."
