    motley fool

    i wholeheartly agree but there are people who buy and sell on "fool" that likes to think he can control the market and thus, of course, make a ton of money.
    i'll never forget about 25 years ago there used to be a writer for wrote for the wall st. journal and his article was entiltled "abreat of the market" i read the article for many months and followed the stock which he mentioned and true to whatever he said the stock either went up or down according to his article. one day i said to the guy who sat behind me "you know this guy seems to control whatever stock he mentions for the day and he could buy or sell depending on his article". several months later the sec arrested this guy because he had established a pattern of either buying or selling the stock he mentioned in his article immediately after his article hit the newsstands. of course, there are many others like motley fool who do exactly the same thing.
