The Prudent Speculator:

Subscriber for about a year now…it’s been a bad year. I question the rationale behind any of the picks made this year and apparently the market did too-John Buckingham has been catching a lot of falling knives and while the fundamental arguments for the stocks he picks may be there it doesn’t seem that he is looking at the entirety of the economic outlook in general-it’s just a bad time to be picking any stocks right now and everything-particularly undervalued “value” plays are getting whacked. This guy has about the best long term performance over 20 and 25 years but when you’re paying anything to see your value get wiped out by 50% or more in a year you regret the purchase of the newsletter and any of the picks made. The newsletter is good…but lately there’s been too much of “this has happened before and when it did we had a big rebound, etc….”-Bull-and I don’t mean bullish-the newsletter isn’t taking into account the fundamental issues in the economy…it just says to keep buying these “undervalued” stocks and then hope that he’s right…perhaps he gives good advice in a bull market, but his advice the last year would have hurt you more than being in the S&P by about 20-25 more downside.

I happen to look for reviews on The Prudent Speculator last year. Fortunately, I didn’t let the one negative review, based on one year (one of the market’s worse), influence me.

Over the past year this letter is up 36% and averages (even with the poor 2008 performance) over 10% annually for the past 10 years. I wish all my investments had been so generous.

My only concern is the number of positions held. Still, the long-term holding beats the heck out of the 400 Navellier Quantum Growth trades I made last year.
