No. of Recommendations: 2
I agree with JR. I use fundamentals a lot, so I don't really listen to a lot of brokers but I do have a couple of comments:

1. Brokers have no understanding of your own portfolio, risk tolerance etc. It's like some-one giving you advice on what colour to paint your car, when you don't own one.

2. Brokers aren't accountable for their recommendations. I haven't once yet seen a broker who has sample portfolios which track how well their recommendations are going.
