The particular stock I charted doesn't matter. TMF never gets the timing right. As another example of this, read their recent article and chart the stocks they tout --err, mention-- using MONTHLY bars. In some cases, they are late by as much as TWO YEARS!

Why should entry price matter to a classic, Ben Graham-style value investor? Because a sensible entry price reduces downside risk. That's the trade-off TMF fails to understand, the diff between 'information-risk' and 'price-risk'.

It don't matter whether one self-identifies as an "investor" or a "trader". Timing matters. In fact, it's the only thing that matters.
