Well, to be frank I'm not here to convert, but one can at least gamble by looking at the cards. I ought to admit I do this for a living, so I'm a bit biased by history and by inclination...

I agree that after sufficient experience, and access to the vast amount of information available at a money management company, that it is possible to successfully choose winning stocks based on fundamentals. And, a professional stock picker would have the greatest advantage when picking small high growth stocks.

However, I do not believe that this approach would be best for most people who are managing their own portfolios. They would be creating an extremely high risk portfolio that could implode at any time.
