“I do not think a man who fancies himself an expert and routinely underperforms a strategy that a bright eight year old can follow is unjust or immoral. I just think that he has less investing accumen than a bright eight year old. The fact that there is an entire field composed of not-quite-bright-eight-year-olds-yet, who make their living advising folks who are not-quite-bright-six-year-olds-yet, doesn't make his accomplishments more impressive to me.”

Impressive….maybe not…for the record I fit into the not-quite-bright-six-year-olds-yet group. Someday I may graduate….hopefully I will graduate….but until I learn the not-quite-bright-eight-year-olds-yet strategy I firmly believe lessons can learned from what he does.

Immoral or unjust are two paths I don’t think he travels. If that was the case, he would not be so open about telling you to buy the cute little red bulls from the store (just one of many examples of his self proclamations and promotions).

In the end, he can provide a different view of the market and investing. It is totally up to the person observing to learn some, all, or none of the lessons he tries to teach.
