For any advisor, the real question is his performance after fees. Look at the net result, but also the volatility.

As mentioned, he has beat the market with less volatility after fees.

Also, you might look at the Mechanical Investing Board.

Been there, done that. After 8 years, I wasn't beating the market so I stopped.
