Dear Fools: I've lost a lot of faith in The Motley Fool of late. I was especially disheartened by their decisions to sell JDSU and Yahoo, because, repectively, they thought JDSU lacked intergrity of management and that Yahoo was too risky. I don't fault The Motley Fool for admitting mistakes and take some of the blame myself, but just 9 months ago they were exhorting the value of these stocks as must haves, apparently caught up in the hysteria of "momentum investing". Before they identify a stock as being a Rule Breaker or Maker, they should check out the company thoroughly, as they suggest other's do. They should think twice before making a recommendation! They are not true deciples of Warren Buffet, Benjamin Graham, or Philip Fisher; they are just additional opinion givers;we are one our own! Regards, JohnLaw
