Anyone else read it?Michael O'Higgins mentions it in "Beating the Dow," which the Foolish Four and Unemotional Value methods are based on, and which I highly recommend. He says the author, Burton Malkiel is an adherent to the Efficient Markets Theory. In Malkiel's words "a blindfolded chimpanzee throwing darts at the Wall Street Journal can perform as well as the experts." I disagree. If you think he's right, stick your $$ in an index fund and forget about picking stocks.After I read this, I moved "A Random Walk Down Wall Street" way down my reading list (after Lynch, O'Higgins, and of course, the Gardner bros). I'll get around to it eventually. ;-)Wayne McLarenVictoria BC
