"And most people on Saul's board are simply gambling and have very little idea of what they are buying, no idea when to sell, etc"

I say you need to earn your right to make that statement with some very good performance statistics of your own.



That's an utterly nonsensical reply, bereft of all logic.

I don't have to be a better card-counter than a really good card-counter to know most of the people in the casino doing the same things are purely gambling and do not have an advantage over the house.

If someone else makes a ton of money at the roulette wheel, that doesn't mean they have even one iota of skill.

Did you know/forget that Saul lost 68% in the last big recession? He's transparent about it. No matter how 'great' a manager, or card-player, is s/he can still lose most/all of his chips.

The lemmings who are blindly following Saul/the stocks highly owned on that board are going to get crushed in the inevitable downturn.

You lose 68%, you need to triple your money to just get even again. Virtually no one at TMF has that kind of risk-tolerance, unlike Saul who clearly does.
