First - Is it really necessary to spend 2/3 of the time bashing mutual funds? The show sounds a lot like Rush Limbaugh with all the negative comments. Would the time not be better spent explaining the fool principals and practices?

I enjoy the show, but my wife is really turned off by the negative comments on mutual funds, even though we both agree that mutual funds under perform the market generally.

I think you answered your own question. If 95% of Mutual Funds are under performing the market, who is going to tell the people about it? The Mutual Fund Industry? Not gonna happen. The Fools are doing their part by letting the average guy in on a secret that Wall Street would rather we did not know about. How did you find out that Mutual Funds were underperforming the market? I did not know that fact until I heard it from the Fools!

Second - I would like to hear more listener questions. I think that listeners would learn more from answers to questions. Most people will not call and ask questions because they are afraid they would appear stupid, or would ask a stupid question. They do not realize that there are lots of others out there who would like to hear the answer to their unasked question.

Look if you have a question why don't you do yourself a favor and call the Fools next weekend and ask it? I promise that no one will think your question is stupid. The only stupid question is the one that is not asked!

Fool On!
