The only problem I have with this is: How did this escalate into 874 pages on this board? Oh well, that may just be me <pressing the unnotify button now>

Well, COBF did it again! Almost all of the most frequented names under Investment ideas have been mediocre to plain duds. You can sort the Investment Ideas section by # replies and see that. I even posted the lack lustre to poor stock price performance for the most popular names from post #1 to post #xxxxx here in 2015. http://www.cornerofberkshireandfairfax.ca/forum/general-discussion/what-happened-to-this-board/msg223221/#msg223221

Stay away from the most discussed stocks on COBF!

At least in SHLD case, lately it's the most frequented name because it's a dud.

fareastwarriors,

It's OK.

Personally, I apologize if I have been condescending prior in this topic towards SHLD longs on this board. Personally, I just don't get it [SHLD].

Somehow, it's all about the purpose of the trade, I know some people on this board [sharperdigaan among others] made a short term killing some time ago of the then short squeeze, based on the meticulous work of Luke 5:32.

I guess because if it is a STUD, people are busy buying and not posting - that is what I do anyway! But if it is a dud, people keep arguing over how bad or good it is!

That's a really interesting observation.  I wonder if we took all the most discussed ideas on CBOF, looked at the trading prices from the first month (averaged) till today, what the performance would be like.  I often wonder whether online investing forums are worth visiting anymore.  Might be easier just to do passive investing, ala Bogleheads, for the average folk than all of this "analysis" junk.
