Hey DavidG,

It's nice to see you around on this ole "Portfolio Board". Too many dusty cobwebs over at "Maker" (or on Brother's "Tom's Place")...

I'd like to make a suggestion, based on your assertion of +48% returns over (whatever timeframe) for your Advisor picks.

Could "youse guys" make an easily accessible page/link/listing of your Advisor picks, and pans... I understand that these are premium services, so I'd suggest a reasonable waiting period, say "+6 months" before posting the results publically.

Then a person could "look for themselves" at what companies you guys have explored and how they've performed. It would give a feel for what kind of things you look at. It would provide a quick check of your universe, so we could see if it expands or merely duplicates our own.

AND #1: It would return an element of "public accountability" of your sort-of tracked (at least recorded) stock selections. You can add whatever disclaimer you want about these are not recommendations or don't copy us, but it was you yourself that mentioned your pick's rate of return -
so I don't see any argument against publically posting picks, prices and performances.

Hell, I think it would work as a powerful additional 'marketing' tool, at least an informational tool, to have some publically available record of "what we were saying when".

Thoughts ?
