Almost a year ago - on April 19 - dickymellon favored the Yahoo! message boards with his investment picks: YONG, EONC, RITT, BORN, SBLK, and IVAN. Since that date, the S&P has advanced 16%, so obviously, most stocks are up since then. The astounding thing is that dickymellon managed to choose 3 stocks - EONC, BORN, and SBLK - which lost half their value over this period. IVAN is down only 25% while RITT has skyrocketed from 3.70 to 3.78. He actually has one winner, YONG, which advanced from 3.25 to 5.32. Although I should point out that the stock was halted today because of apparent financial irregularities and is down sharply after hours. This is indeed a remarkable record. For much of the rest of last year, dickymellon trumpeted the merits of MOTR ("THE NEXT AAPL!") and even announced on October 7 that he had mortgaged his house to buy more shares. He repeatedly predicted that it was "GOING TO 30!!" And he was right; It HAS gone to 30. 37 cents. The rest of his time he spent bashing MDVN.
