JWR Smackdown at M*

Some of those M* C0mmunity Members are not buying JWR's Kool-aid. Lots of back-and-forth. Here's a sample . . .

**LINK**

bilperk: A "free lunch" in investment terms is when you get more return continuously and predictably than the market for the same or less risk.

JWR: This has been demonstrated repeatedly.

The academic studies indicating otherwise are hopelessly flawed. They insist on buying a mutual fund at the peak of returns--buy high--not waiting to buy low.

bilperk: Oh now I get it. ?Its a free lunch as long as you time it correctly, like when Taco Bell gave away a free taco to everyone in the US on a certain day at 3:00 PM because some baseball player stole a base in the World Series or something, or someone else did something in the Olympics.

The level of emotion evidenced in the posts tells the tale of how confident those putting forward the posts are in their beliefs.

This is why Passivezzz Investing never works in the long run. Even those who "believe" in it do not really believe in it.

Rob,

Pointing out that you two are tards does not require any emotion on my part except quizzical bemusement at what you two will pull next. You are an oddity to entertain, nothing more.

Standard content-free hocus troll post.
Seriously, hocus, I don't know if you're really insane or you just believe that acting that way is a good way to get attention.

My closest friends say that it appears to them that's a little bit of both.. -- hocus 2007.

So you're saying that the "Passivezzz" investor doesn't alter his investment strategy due to posts from a mentally disturbed troll on the internet? ?That doesn't seem so bad.

Rob, are 17 years and 80 years long run?

You don't know a thing about my investing style or outlook. You need to more carefully read my posts, boy.

Here is a hint -- the only thing I am rabidly "anti" is stupidity, and "pro" is truth and sensibility. So much for *my* dogmatism, such as it is.

Rob, you are the complete opposite on those counts, THAT is why you seldom find me in your court. I think it is fair to say I am the anti-Rob!!!!

Familiarity breeds contempt; especially applicable in regards to one Rob Bennett.
