The RM port has been bashed quite a bit of late. I'd like to stick my neck out here and say that everything I know about investing can be traced to TMF. Every good investing book I've read I've heard about here first. Every stupid question I had when I was starting out was answered on these boards. I've used the RM philosophy in my own port and have done reasonably well, better in fact than the on line portfolio. My three best performing positions AAPL up 18%, BRK.B up 28% and AMGN up 130% were picked using RM ideas but don't apear in the online real money port. My point is that the method is validated only if it can be applied by individual investors to select stocks. Furthermore I've learned as much from the RM ports mistakes as from its sucesses. I'm educated and amused.
