...My friend showed me some model portfolios from RYR, but - given the hip, 40-year-old plus demographic of you Fools - I think the RYR portfolios are non-optimal for my age....One of the problems with the fool portfolios is that you never really know how many portfolios they started five or ten years ago and if just the better performing ones have survived. Many years ago they used to have a web page of all their closed portfolios and strategies in a "Lessons learned" section which was fair enough but as far as I can tell that disappeared years ago.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Survivorship_biasThe way that the Motley Fool got its name was that the "wise" couldn't beat the index funds or dome simple strategies like "the dogs of the Dow" or the "Foolish four". It turned out that the simple strategies didn't work so well either for the most part. With this in mind it is sort of ironic that they are now selling newletters.Check out a used book store or a library to see some of the Motley Fool books from the late 1990's to see what they said about similar newsletters back then.
