The question isn’t whether they are stocks a shoe shine boy would talk about. It is whether the discussion of the companies on Saul’s board is deep, substantive and substantial. In that regard the board is top notch.


And there is also a good argument that these are not 'shoe-shiners' at all, or at least of the variety we normally think about as shoe-shine companies. These companies are not like the mortgage and insurance companies making bad subprime loans and bundling them all together into CDAs that were almost worthless, bringing the market to a standstill. Even more, these companies are unlike the dot-coms that had no there there, no earnings, just a wing and a prayer and a catchy name.

While you **can** argue that they are overvalued (something that we will see born out one way or another relatively soon), virtually all of them have good earnings that are increasing quarter over quarter.

That is the definition of a company that I want to at least look at for potential purchase and Saul's Board provides multiple in-depth looks at each of the companies it posts on.
