Posting this on Sunday evening so that I don’t forget to do it tomorrow morning.


I am posting this version of The Rules, on alternate weeks to make it more interesting. imyoung created it and I really like its light format.



What We DO on Saul’s Board

Bear (PaulWBryant), Austin (CMFALieberman), Matt (XMF BreakerForce), Benjamin (Locke), and imyoung, will each assist Saul in running this board. Please make their job easier by obeying Saul’s basic rules:

We are grateful the Motley Fool hosts this board and we will do nothing to jeopardize this by posting information from the paid services.

We DO discuss and analyze individual growth stocks

We DO discuss our philosophy why we invest in them

We DO bring new companies to this board, elaborating what the company does, citing pertinent financial information, such as revenue growth, margins, total addressable margin, competition, etc.

We DO discuss our month-end portfolios, and especially why we chose our stocks and why we made changes. (Just a list of stocks and positions with no discussion doesn’t hack it).

We DO ask ourselves if our post adds anything of value to the discussion. One-liners usually don’t.

We DO disagree with posters in a courteous manner

We DO use “E-Mail This Reply to the Author” (unclick Post this Reply to the Board) for brief thank-yous or off-topic commentary or questions

We DO study “Saul’s Knowledgebase”, “How I Pick a Company to Invest In,” and “Why My Investing Criteria Have Changed,” and “Why It Really is Different” found to the right when in individual post-mode (it is not visible in thread-mode)



The Don’ts:

No blabbing investment information from paid TMF or other paid services

No cluttering up the board with one-line, meaningless posts

No basic investment questions

No portfolio management discussions

No technical analysis

No option trading

No value or turn-around investing

No income investing

No bond investing

No market-timing

No market predictions of Investor Business Daily or anyone else

No long lists of what stocks have done in the past week

No macroeconomics

No non-investing subjects

No angry attacks against posters with opposing opinions

NO Politics !!!


Thanks for your cooperation!

Saul
