Here’s my question: Do people really reap fantastic rewards by spending that much money over and above their normal $49 or $98 fee? I’m thinking that if their suggestions were that good, then everybody would be clammoring to get on board. What’s your take?

Check out Shortzilla if you are looking to short stocks. I promise that you will at least find our service to be valuable—and one that has a lot of care in making profit for our subscribers.
