No, it's not. But you can buy in if you like. I like to be paid in gum.

I was just reading though that list.. saw bill fleckenstein on the list.. i occasionally read his articles but it's usually full things I dont agree with along with his constant hatred of the fiat money system and a love for gold... he is only right 33% of the time

ppl pick on him quite a bit but i think he is about as good as most of the other experts.. meaning.. not that good. The only expert I would listen to is warren buffett.. and warren buffet follows value investing.

here is more on his investing strategy:

http://www.investopedia.com/articles...782591&203x138


some other things he uses is a business difficult or very expensive to get into? airplane manufacturing, railroads.. etc fit into that. is there little or no competition? do they have a competitive advantage?

I believe OCZ being in the SSD business puts them into that category, however their debt and past performance hasn't been great..so it is a gamble.. you wont be seeing warren buffett buying this stock. but if OCZ wasn't into solid state drives I would not recommend them for certain, they would have no competitive advantage in the memory/psu market.
They lost 20 million in sales last quarter... This would indeed be quite the gamble, how do you know if SSD's don't become the next RAM/Flash Drive battle?

I'm waiting for Sprint to bottom out, probably in the next couple months. They'll have to shell out 1-2 Billion in capital to support Clearwire, or else it will go bust.

AMD also may be a good stock, their new netbook CPU/GPU kicks the **** out of Intel's Atom in almost all tests.

LUV is also always a good option. It's trading at normal rates, and with the acquisition of a competitor, the stock should go up.

Yep.. AMD is one i've been recommending for awhile.. i bought it at $2 a share and sold at $10, im thinking of picking it back up..

OCZ isn't in danger of going out of business in the next year or so.. or even coming close, they are making good sales but the profit margins on ram are so tight right now it's hard to make a profit. also, I believe their loss is related to In February 2010, OCZ divested its Hypersonic Personal Computer (PC) Systems product lines.

I'm not a fan of airlines... true, it is difficult to get into, but they also have tight profit margins like a ram manufacturer.. buying competitors isn't necessarily going to help an airline because there are so many competitors, the only way it can help is if the one they purchased was highly profitable... which usually isn't the case... and when fuel prices go up the airline either takes a hit or raises prices.. and as we saw 2 years ago with $5/gal gas they were losing money... people stopped flying it was so expensive further compounding their issue of the expensive fuel.

thats another thing warren buffett warns against.. buying into a company that relies heavily on a commodity.

Investing in hookers and crack is always a safe bet

Where do you do that at? I wouldn't mind maybe practicing with some fake money. Do they use actual buisnesses and stock numbers to practice with?
