I briefly Mark Skousen’s newsletter. They advertised triple digit returns and maybe if you follow his advice exactly, over long periods you’ll make money but I sure didn’t have a good start.

One feature I like is that the monthly letter is supplemented with a weekly recorded message that subscribers can listen to every Monday. In these, he gives more timely advice. For instance, in one of these call-ins, he recently advised getting out of BAC after it lost about 10% but avoided steeper declines if it had been held until the next monthly
