Well, that makes me glad I am not a follower of Buffett. That is just plain stupid.

He's arguably the greatest investor of all time. I don't know why you are so critical of Buffett. I would be *very* surprised if your own investment results were anything close to Buffett's.

Your arguments don't have any substance. Show me why Buffett's philosophy doesn't work. Of course it will be impossible, because his philosophy is tremendously effective. The *only* way you can possibly make the argument is by distorting his philosophy into something it's not.

Dollar cost averaging VFINX gave terrible results the last time I did the calculations.

Over what period of time? You are making foolish blanket generalizations.
