track record - batting average - everybody miss one every so often

I agree with you, Raccoon, that Donville can afford to miss on a few like Valeant, given his awe-inspiring track record.

But still, it is one thing to invest in Valeant, as many smart people did, and it is quite another to disparage criticisms coming from some turkey in Nevada, and even question the turkey's right to make the criticisms of this fine outstanding company (and what next? What if he criticizes and takes down the National Bank of Canada, horrors? And then, one of the Big Five Canadian banks? Etc.).

And then of course all these criticisms that Left was making turn out to be true, in fact it's even a fair bit worse. Which is a fine illustration of why having free speech is kind of a useful thing, and make Donville's really over the top anger seem even sillier. I guess the most irritating criticism is the criticism that you have a sneaking feeling might be true. Good lesson here for any investor on the importance of considering the opposite viewpoint...
