"I have no problem with Fool’s philosophy."

Actually, you do have a problem with their "philosophy", otherwise you wouldn't be complaining.

If you grind through the financial statements of their "recommended" stocks, you will discover --on average-- the companies are financially 'healthy', just not 'profitable'. If you then read the analysts' reports, you'll discover --on average-- the company is projected to grow its revenues at above average rates. So the "investing" question --which really is just unfounded speculation-- is whether the company's earnings will ever catch up to its current stock price.

On average, if you wait around for 3 to 5 years, that will happen, not because of the company's activities, but because the overall market has risen. Meanwhile, of course, you're under water on the position.
