Quick one marginally off-topic so any replies more than a a two or three probably out of order?
I have often questioned the curious habit of folks here indulging themselves by comparing the risk-level of their superb results to the dear old widows and orphans favorite, the S&P 500. But here’s a result where I think we can properly derive amusement and where triumphalism is not misplaced: the results of the great and good of the Barrons Round Table.
Although I will naturally allow that the panellists could reply they would have sold and not actually had such an arbitrarily date-defined result and they were recommendations at the date given, nevertheless, I think it is legitimate to crow and even chortle at the experts.
As always, congratulations Saul.
Couldn’t agree more Strelna. Following the Barrons experts equates to throwing darts
Speaking of ETFs (which I have learned right here to dislike because they would invariably be composed largely of equities that I would not otherwise buy independently) … turns out I may soon need to take a passive stance to investing and will therefore need to identify a couple of ETFs that operate in this space as the next best thing. So far I have identified PSJ (Dynamic Software). Is it too off topic to ask if readers have any other similar ideas?
I’m sorry, Fireblade, but asking to start a thread on ETF’s is really OFF-TOPIC for our board. I’ll ask ANYONE WHO WANTS TO RESPOND to you to do it off board (by going to the boxes below while putting in a reply, and unchecking “Post this Reply to the Boards”, and checking “E-Mail this Reply to the Author”).
thanks for your cooperation.
Yes you’re absolutely right. Apologies
