    BOB BRINKER...GREAT WHITE SHARK? ...

    WHEN WILL BOB BRINKER'S NEWSLETTER SUBSCRIBERS, ALL 100 OF THEM, GET IT?

    AFTER LISTENING TO BOB AND READING MARKETIMER FOR 15+ YEARS, ALL I'VE SEEN IS AVERAGE MARKET CALLS AT BEST AND SOME COSTING HIS SUBSCRIBERS HUGE LOSSES. LIKE OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS FOR EXAMPLE. AND, IN THIS CURRENT SELLOFF. YEP, GOOD OLD BOB HAS HIS SUBSCRIBERS SITTING 100% IN US EQUITIES THRU VANGUARD TOTAL STOCK MARKET. WOW, SITTING IN STOCKS WHILE THE MARKET GET HIT FOR 12+% IN PAST TWO MONTHS.

    MESSAGE TO BOB BRINKER: DON'T CALL YOUR $185.00 NEWSLETTER "MARKETIMER" IF YOU ARE NOT TIMING THE MARKET. IF YOU WERE A PROFESSIONAL IN YOUR LINE OF WORK, YOU WOULD HAVE HAD YOUR SUBSCRIBERS OUT OF STOCKS OVER THE PAST 2 MONTHS. AND, OUT OF STOCKS IN THE HUGE SELLOFF TWO YEARS AGO. BUT NO BOB, YOU KEEP PUSHING US EQUITIES EVEN WHEN THE MARKET'S ABOUT TO GIVE BACK 12 TO 20 %. WHAT'S UP WITH THAT!!! MY GRANDMA'S CAT COULD TIME THE MARKET BETTER THAN THAT!!

    AND CALLING OTHER MARKET TIMERS AND BROKERS SHARKS ON YOUR RADIO SHOW ? COME ON BOB, WHAT VARIETY OF SHARK ARE YOU . . . HAMMERHEAD OR GREAT WHITE?

    From what I've seen in Brinker's supposed "Marketiming" via his newsletter, he's not much more than what he preaches investor's should be wary of . . . "becoming shark bait" from brokers selling products that don't live up to their hype. Talk about the Hypester of all time!!! Brinker has been telling his subscribers for years to stay in stocks and stay long. Even through the huge sell off we're experiencing today. Even through the selloff last year and the year before. The guy has no business telling other's how to invest their money and more than you or I do. He's just another "SHARK". PATHETIC !!!

    He has kept his subscribers in US equities fully invested for the past 6 1/2 years. And, they've gotten killed using his BS marketimer. And on top of it, they paid $185 per year to get pumped with BS that points to higher stock prices in the year ahead. Yeah right Bob ! And what year is this supposedly going to happen, lol ! ?

    Someone needs to set everyone straight on this marketiming "guru". From subscribing with this guy for years, I've seen nothing in his track record that shows he can help anyone make more money than any of the other "Sharks".

    For those of you still following this guy's advice. . . Sucker !!!
