Mr. Clinger, how do you define a value stock? How do you define a growth stock?
He's already been asked that. He's not interested in a rational discussion about value investing. There will be a lot of arm waving about a book he found at half priced books and that you should read that.
OF course, you don't really appreciate the upside until you've felt the downside. Most importantly, you can't really gauge your tolerance for risk until you are playing on the field.
Meanwhile, some of you think a little year long experiment will actually prove something to the other party. At the end of the day, no one will be converted to the other side. Most surprising to me, however, is that the moderators allow this troll to pimp his "services." Sure, I could see if he wanted to talk about value investing methodology. But he doesn't, he's just here to try and turn a couple of cheap tricks. And, much like Rob Bennett (aka Hocus), destroying the board. As the old Biblical story goes, I'm washing my hands of this clown, and if anyone is swindled, that's on those that are in charge here.
