As evidence of this, and his (very recent) power to move markets), minutes after the July Report was released on the Web for subscribers Monday 10:00am, a small company he raved about jumped 56% in 20 minutes.(There was no other news.) This newsletter did not have that effect even 6, or 4 months ago.

Actually, George, I'm going to have to argue this point. I'm not 100% sure you're talking about NOPT, but if you are, there was other news. Namely that the stock was added to the Russell 2000 index. Not to dispute Gilder's influence entirely - there could be an affect coming from the newsletter. But this could also pretty easily be attributed to the addition to the Russell.
