Hello Fellow Fools,
This is my first post so I hope I don't get any hate mail by asking this question. First let me say,and I really mean this, that there is no other place in the world for finding such helpful advise on investing as in FOOLVILLE. I am an advid believer,reader,and practictioner of all the info that I can find at this site and in the books and tools that are put out by the FOOL TEAM. However in my quest for futher knowledge I am considering subscribing to the Michael Murphy Technology Letter. Does this man really have the intimate inside realationships with the Silicon Valley compamies and CEOs that he claims in his newsletter ads. Is this letter worth the investment? Any info from those that have subscrided would be appreciated.
Sincerely,
Eagle

When you post here on the AFQ board, you will only get "love" mail. Anyone who posts anything else will have to reckon with me. Grrrrrr.

I'm not familiar with Mr. Murphy's newsletter so I can't comment.

But here are some sites that rate the various newsletters -- perhaps they can be of some help:

http://www.hulbertdigest.com).

Fool on!

I am a new Fool, and this is my first communication on the message boards. I, too, wonder about the Michael Murphy ad that I accessed through the Motley Fool website. I suppose it's foolish (not Foolish) to assume that Murphy's material is legitimate and helpful just because I accessed it through this site. Can anyone verify that he and his materials are helpful to those of us who want to learn more about investing Foolishly? Thanks to anyone who can provide more information. (I will check out the newsletter rating services recommended by TMF Venus.)

Hello, eagle1234.

I was also looking for some information on the Murphy newsletter and came across your posting.

Unfortunately it seems that of the two "newsletter ratings" services that Ms. Bayer / TMF Venus mentioned, one of them (www.dickdavis.com/adcorn/high.shtml) is simply another newsletter, and the other (www.hulbertdigest.com) requires a paid subscription before they'll tell you anything about the newsletters they supposedly follow.

So now we not only have newsletters that answer the age-old question (Q: How do I get rich in the stock market? A: Sell people a newsletter telling them how to get rich in the stock market), but we also have a new variation (A: Sell people a newsletter telling them all about other newsletters they bought, telling them how to get rich in the stock market.) :-(

My take on the Murphy newsletter is that I'm always suspicious of people who run websites that don't give you any information at all on how to contact them by e-mail. I have several questions I'd like to ask Mr. Murphy directly, questions he should have NO trouble with at all if he's legit. But there's nothing I can do except write a snail mail letter to Michael Murphy in California, in-care-of some newsletter publishing house in Virginia or Pennsylvania or wherever they are.

I'm also pretty much un-interested in anyone who hypes up their service by starting to tell you something and then stops in mid-sentence with "click here for more" and the link is password protected.

So, I'm probably not going to subscribe until Mr. Murphy becomes a little more open and available.

How about you? Did you give it a try, and how is it going?
