The proof of the pudding, as they say, is in the eating. If everyone was getting superior investing results with the BMW method then this board would still be lighting up like a Christmas tree. It isn't. Unfortunately, when you create monikers like "The BMW Method" you'll likely attract people looking for a magic bullet, and may even believe that you've found one yourself. There are no magic bullets in investing.

I fully endorse the broad methodology that the BMW method embodied: If a stock, with a track record, is exhibiting stock-price weakness, do your due diligence and figure out why, and, if therein lies an investment opportunity. This, after all, was the kernel at the center of the BMW method.
