Every month or so, I post about how picking garbage to underperform (like I am doing with this portfolio) requires little to no skill. So for all the players out there who pay attention to the top 20 or so players trying to find good, outperforming stock picks, pay attention to how those people got to where they are. Have they actually picked outperform on anything or do they just short garbage? Do they have a skeptic charm? Beware the garbage shorters because it is easier than you think.

Yes, that's what I meant to write.

I think there should be an optimist charm which indicates that a person has chosen outperform on more than 50% of their picks. Then it would be easy to avoid certain portfolios...

If you are interested in what I think might actually go up, check out my other portfolio - RonChapmanJr
