TDI Episode 79: Advice from Joe the Investor?

Guest: Doug Doyle of and Andrew discuss the problems and merits of the ever growing assortment of social investing sites. The questions that are on the table: Why should we (or anyone) listen to Joe the Investor for advice? Is there an inherent bias with the advice? Is there really any benefit over traditional research? Are there disclosures?

Also, in this episode we also discuss the current market and a few stocks/strategies that you may want to look at for some excellent profit opportunities.

Retirees are going to revolt after they see their October statements and that will surely begin a massive re-tooling of the industry.
