  • Mr. Valuation Disagrees With Henry Blodget: 'It's A Market Of Stocks' Is Not A Meaningless Phrase [View article]
    I do indeed Chistinebitg, live in a "strange" world......found over the years to be somewhat contrary is is be successful. Lots of fact and charts that illustrate the past, as in back-testing, leaves out the human element in investing, the one trait a computer has difficultly in analyzing. And thanks, after a career in portfolio mgt. and time as a Chief Investment Officer at two different capital mgt firms, my lifestyle is quite set with an ample portfolio, actually 4 of them.

    Now having said that, nothing I said earlier is against Chuck in any way. I think he does a very good job at writing articles on this site, I guess primarily to boost his business. I've even bought one of the many stocks he has recommended based on his articles. But I must admit, I did not read that article either, just saw the title and researched it on my own. bought it, and later thanked Chuck via Pm for the idea, though I did tell him that if I had been watching it, I would have bought it about 20 points lower, but I didn't have it on my radar screen as I was heavily overweighted in that sector.

    And best of luck to you in your investing also......but, like I tell most folks, learn to make your opinions on your own......other's opinions can plant a seed of doubt or greed in one's mind that can destroy the investment process......facts and figures, ok, opinions, not so much.

    No, my thinking is closed to most others opinions, which I have found over my 40 years of investing to be mostly random and largely useless to my investing. I rely on facts, valuations, and my own ability to buy and sell. I learned to do it myself long ago, and have never regretted it. There are a precious few around that I will look at the name being mentioned, and perhaps some facts concerning that name, but as to the opinion to buy/sell, I ignore. Seems I recall the great Jimmy Rogers making a statement quite similar one time...

    Oh, my mind is wide open, just not to junk. Glad I got you your laugh of the day.....

    Although I somewhat agree that it is a market of stocks, that only seems to work in a meaningful way when buying a stock that has gone awry, and the value hits a buy zone, and then advances when the bull market continues to advance. The old saying that all boats rise and fall with the tide is largely true.......fighting the trend and the fed is a losers game......unless one is truly a long term investor. I buy value when I see deep value, and only when I still see further market advances on the horizon........hard to fight times when the vast majority of stocks decline during a bear market, so I usually sell a little at a time when individual values become overvalued.............

    Interesting. The one here, though I don't go very often, is fine.....the wife just doesn't care for that kind of food. I've been to a couple of Mickey Dee's that I would never sit foot in again, even emailed corporate about them they were so nasty....

    change usually is good as old mgt. gets complacent............... change for the sake of change is usually not good, just confusion which actually sets a company back further. Saw plenty of that in my corporate days..........
