If you can pick stocks like these people did early in 2012,
there is no need to waste your time on the internets.
The equally weighted portfolio of stocks recommended by them has shot up 37% YTD. Wow!
The only other strategy that might have beaten the performance of their recommendations since 2009 would be to buy the two (non-financial) MLPs (whose average daily volume is more than 250K from the list at www.dividendyieldhunter.com/Master_Limit... ) every six months that performed the best in December and June.
(Of course this is all about total return, which does not have much attraction to many SA readers.)
