I felt that this thought should be put out in the open. Hopefully I won't be slammed for presenting the query "Are the Fools still fools?" I concede that the Gardner brothers have done a great service to the general community, but I wonder if what they're adding to their on line portfolios would otherwise be too risky for the average "fool". And, I wonder what they're adding to their offline portfolios (bonds maybe? Worse, Government bonds?) Yes, I know- they say their purchases are not buy recomendations, but is that truly accurate. As the Fools and their Kingdom grow into the tens of millions by selling books, magazines, newsletters, and advertising, I wonder if their ideas may actually be speculative and risky (I'm sure the on line portfolios are only a tiny fraction of their total net worth- and therefore, less important and easier to take risks with). I'm just putting this thought out there and would like to hear from the rest of you. It's just a thought- not what I may or may not actually belive. Fool on!
