Of course I was greatly aided in the performance by having lost hugely in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 & all prior years.
Bill Miller's record is the opposite of mine, which is losing 50 out of 51 years "investing".
Some stickler for accuracy you aren't!
Clearly, as always, you weren't thinking at all.
Never, ever trust your memory or reasoning ability. Always verify!
The Net makes it easy to do so, inveterate & invertebrate liar.
Alan has made tens of thousands of false forecast, predictions & bad recommendations, but was right only once, by pure accident, in 2002.
After rating TYC "strongest, table-pounding, screaming buy" at $57 in Jan & reiterating that rating at $47, $37, $27 & $17, while piling on ever more maniacal options positions, the loser was finally right at under $7 in July, when the loon was margin called & needed to borrow money from his successful brothers to stave off total destruction.
Alan began on Yahoo boards as the fool was to continue for a decade, never learning anything & making the same mistakes over & over again, with more money at risk after his 2003 half million in inheritances. Most of the dough the liar had to gamble with in 2002 also was inherited from his dad.
> What I meant was that nothing that had happened prior to 9/29/08 would have had market participants believe that the second-worst crash in 110 years was coming down the pike
That is not what you said.
Why don't you try saying what you mean? It would facilitate conversation.
The discussion involved your idiotic statement that nothing much happened until September '08. Please attempt to understand what was written before commenting. I would prefer you not comment at all as you are not qualified.
No mentioned was made as to cause. It is a simple fact that the market dropped nearly 20% during a period you had said nothing much happened. Wrong again, moron.
Well, other than dropping over 18% in the year up to September,08 nothing all that bad happened.
Well, there was Phizzle that was down a mere 33% during that period.
The moron strikes again.
BTW, was the moron ever right? Honestly, I don't know but I have only been here about four years so he could have been right once before then.
> I repeat - nothing horrific happened in the market until Sept. 29, 2008
Please write that down so you can remember saying it.
I am sure when someone mentions that statement and date sometime in the future, you will claim to have never said it.
It seems that links using the short form of his first name of Richard are immediately deleted by Yahoo computers.
Apparently Richard Bove is OK, but D*** Bove is not.
