For example, if you took Bill's word for it last Wednesday, you might've thought Nokia's flow ratio was just a so-so 1.85. Nope, it's actually 1.16. Did we catch you with that one? Watch out, we Fools are prone to a bit of trickery now and then."

In my opinion, TMF continually maintains its credibility high above "conventional" media and analysts as it insists, "Don't take our word for it. Do your own due dilligence." You would never get a broker/analyst to advise you like this. What would happen to his commissions?

In my mind, the fact that The Fool, among others, makes mistakes is another reason to do your own dd before buying anything.

Just my $.02
