I'm new to Motley Fool and I've been looking at the "players" records and some of them are just astonishing... accuracy of around 90% and annualized returns that would double or triple your money in a year. I'm not doubting the figures but what am I not seeing here? Why aren't investors and fund managers duplicating these player's buys and sells, or are they?

I did some calculations and the current top "Fool" looks to be doing over 300% rather consistently. Most of us struggle just to keep up with the market. Am I interpreting his record wrong? It's got me staying awake at night trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong.
