Wall Street Manna versus Wall Street


Bloomberg did a piece on what would happen if you followed Wall Street's advice since the March 9 bottom. Here's what they found:

An investor who used $10,000 to buy companies in the highest-rated industries and bet on declines in the lowest since the advance began on March 9 lost everything and would owe as much as $6,000 to cover bearish trades, the data show.

Huh?

They lost everything? And then owed another $6,000????

A couple weeks back, some Wall Street firms tried to have this blog shut down. Maybe they don't like my pointed criticism. So to be fair to the folks on Wall Street, I did a little analysis also since March 9.

I have too many pages and pages and pages and pages of good stuff since the bottom, but I'll try and condense it just a little. So maybe this post, can be sent to some of the research staff at these firms, with their half ass, lousy, paid for advice!

And I'll make the returns in bold, and in green, and in larger type font, because Lord knows you're not supposed to do it. They might think you're touting a track record! And Lord knows you're not supposed to ever get excited about making money.

And this isn't a chest pounding exercise either. I just want to make it easier so someone can check out all the action in this blog, because Lord knows I throw a bunch of extraneous stuff in there. I'm not going to bother putting all the good calls that differed from the Wall Street shills, and I'm not going to put some insignificant trades that didn't amount to much, otherwise, I'll just be re-writing the blog.

But has there been any blog, or Wall Street firm, that has a better published track record since the 666 bottom?

If there is, please bring it to my attention. I'd like to read it, and get some ideas, and make this blog better!

I doubt many have equalled or even come close to your performance the last few months. Well Done. however, it seems we are going to correct down to 950 for now. Bulls are on vacation partying.
