Thank you for the reply. Considering that AOL and DELL are not gorillas, I have decided that this board is unlikely to be productive since it is most interested in finding the next Microsoft (how often does that happen--good luck). I simply am interested in making a good return and am not interessted in investing religions-- be that Berkshire Hathaway or this board.

I was initially tempted to say "see ya" and leave it at that, but you really ought to consider reading the book before dismissing this strategy. How about the next CSCO, QCOM, RMBS, NTAP, SEBL, BRCM, etc., etc., etc.? I think it is fair to say that many regular posters on this board have triple digit returns for the past 12 months -- not something to be dismissed. Check out the returns on the SI model portfolios -- they crush the Fool's model portfolios.

Gorilla/King Index -- up 40% year to date.

Gorilla/King Watch and Wait -- up 89% year to date.

I am not being critical of the Fool's portfolios; they are real money portfolios, unlike SI's, and have been around longer. Still, if your objective is to make a "good return," I cannot imagine a better way to invest.
