Hey Steve,

Great points and a great post. Thanks for improving my CAPS game!

This is a really key point. At first I was content to just rob and cheat and steal connive my way into All-Stardom, but to show one can rassle with the big boys, one has to walk some roads alone. Your quote below is dead on.

An added bonus is the fact that many of the crap companies are heavily picked to underperform, so shorting wildly overvalued brand names often allow you to pick up massive points on leaders (sometimes, not in all cases).

Best,

BD
