Simple question - should anyone listen to Alan J. Daniels?
Simple answer: They should not listen to Alan J. Daniels under any of his multiple aliases.
Why should they NOT listen to his advice?
1) He retired because he was obsolete in the working world. The death of two female relatives made him wealthy beyond his own abilities.
2) Al Daniels has mis-managed his bequest so that he now has less than 20% of what he inherited just a few short years ago.
3) Al Daniels cannot enjoy his bequest because he has mis-managed it to the point that he remains more than 100% invested in such risky ventures as Pfizer derivatives while the nation is governed by evil forces that are determined to socialize all medicine in the last bastion of free enterprise on the planet.
4)Al Daniels did not think that he would be gambling on Pfizer in September, 2009. He previously realized the risks that anyone can see, and declared that he would be out of Pfizer with (100%, 200%, 300%) profits by the time the 2008 election cycle started.
5) You cannot possibly have a more miserable retirement than Alan J. Daniels. Since he has retired, he has inherited more than $500k, has lost it all, and spends 100% of his time either gambling at the track or trying to "strike it rich" in the market.
A few of the many good reasons not only never ever to do as Fat Al says, but to do the precise opposite.
Anyone listening to Fat Al over the past eight years has lost 1000%! The lying lunatic loser & O-C gambling addict said it was "riskless" to "go maniacal" on PFE options at $29, tripling down on losses from $32, then tripling down again at $19 after booking 300 grand in losses on a $100K "superior methods" bet, only to ride the derivatives all the way down to stock price under $12, losing another $700K directly & indirectly from raiding his aunt's annuity & taking out more mortgages on his mom's house, after wiping out the loser's own pitiful life's savings.
