I didn't see the part where he stated he earned a 30% return on his investments.

So today when I see people buying some company because they think it’s cool, I try to remind myself about the way I used to buy shares. As luck would have it, most of these positions turned out to perform spectacularly (except the airline) returning more than 30% a year.

It's a little fuzzy exactly how much money had in the "30% a year" stocks. The whole site really rubs me the wrong way. Not because of accomplishments, but the tone and the bolding feel like snake-oil salesmanship.
