Now I know that I can't expect those kind of returns all the time, there might be years when I even lose money. But to be able to easily and succesfully invest is a blessing. Thank you David and Tim for everything that you have done for us, the individual investors.


Much as you, I used mutual funds until about two years ago when I stumbled across TMF and the Foolish Workshop. This gave me my opportunity to learn about MI and the various capabilities.

However, let's give credit where credit is due. David and Tom (not Tim) have provided the forum for discussion of this topic. However, they have pointed out many times that they are not fans of Mechanical Investing. The true thanks should be going to people like Sparfarkle, Moe Chernick, Peter Kuperman, Sux2BeU, klouche, gritton, bdfinney, RCarr, JackCade, TMFElan, Rayvt, buckaroobanzai, arezi, TMFSynchronicity, and countless others who have devoted their time and energies to developing the screens you have seen here.

Some thanks should also go to Robert Sheard, the original supporter of workshop ideas who left for greener pastures, but left a legacy of supporters for MI that continues to this day.

I like Dave and Tom, but I like these guys much better.
