No. of Recommendations: 0
way back in the day, they had a strategy called the "Foolish Four" ..i followed it for a while and didn't lose TOO much
haven't really listened to them since .

Well, at least FF had some logic and backtesting behind it (even though the backtesting turned out to have some serious flaws.

Worse yet were things like the "Rule Makers" and "Rule Breakers" portfolios. IIRC these lost 50% of their value and were eventually abandoned. I can't think of any reason that any of TMFs current recommendations are based on anything more solid than RM & RB were.
