Many of you are familiar with Seeking Alpha articles–mostly because SA’s founder David Jackson did a great job getting his content onto Yahoo! Finance–it ain’t due to the quality of work! It’s more because the financial media circus is all about more content.
Breaking news, earnings, scandals…bleh blah blah, all the most active stocks must be covered and dissected by boring-ass stuck-up finance freaks, all of whom put together are less entertaining than a block of wood all while they consistently underperform the major indexes aka people who should have no audience whatsoever and instead focus on learning how to beat the market and not being scum-sucking fee-earning marketers who take advantage of the general public’s lack of market understanding.
So, it’s rather funny to me–and it should be to you too–that many of these wannabes are revolting against SA, angry they’re not getting paid for their efforts.
Boo hoo, cry me a river you losers. You ungrateful/untalented financial writers out there–marketing tactics aside, you know who you are–should feel privileged to have found a media outlet with wide distribution willing to endorse your below average/near-total-guessing-game/no-edge-whatsoever “work”. You think you deserve more, you deserve nothing–you deserve less than nothing. You should bow down to David Jackson and kiss his ring for the opportunity he’s given you. Since you waste readers’ time and web space with your petty attempts at market logic, you should actually be paying SA for the right to be included on their site. (there’s a way to get your profits up Dave!)

Sure, some financial people actually deserve to be heard, so my apologies to people like Rempel and Ritholtz. But to soooo many others–mostly sissy value investors (how’s GE treatin’ ya today you schmucks!)–you wanna get paid, mainstream blogging ain’t for you–at least not this early in the game. If you think you’re actually worth listening to–which you’re probly not–focus on developing a personality, expanding your own blogs, getting advertisers (as I have) and backing up everything you say with actual trades and investments.
And, I encourage EVERYONE to join Covestor, where you’ll be judged on your returns, not on your personalities–so many of you can still succeed at something! As you might know–besides having a big mouth–I’m #1 up there…by a wide margin…so continue being your whining/unoriginal selves while ripping on my “risky” “un-American” “strange” trading strategy all you want, you got nothinnnnnnnn until you step up to the plate and dethrone me!
