Comments on: Self-promoter of the day: Keith McCullough http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2011/10/26/self-promoter-of-the-day-keith-mccullough/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: jassy12 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2011/10/26/self-promoter-of-the-day-keith-mccullough/comment-page-1/#comment-40427 Wed, 20 Jun 2012 20:13:35 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/?p=10743#comment-40427 How can this guy possibly stay in business? Ever since he started showing up on CNBC, he’s been aggressively short when the market is rallying and then finally jumps on board
right when we’re near a top.
He’s one of those guys who thinks that if he talks loud and with confidence, people will think he knows what he’s talking about.
It’s not enough to sound smart, you actually have to be smart. I’m not surprised he’s 100% cash. It’s because he doesn’t know what else to do.
But I would like to thank him for signaling the last 2 tops for me,
keep up the good work!

ps at least he less dangerous than a GARTMAN on CNBC everyday and wrong all the time which does have value because I have started “fading” each GOLD call he makes and done VERY well!

He seems to be selling newsletters at $30 a pop. He’s joined the rest of us in the exalted financial perch of Some Dude With A Noisy Website (and a ridiculous tie).

She compared the layout of the screen to facebook, and we more or less agreed that it’s largely designed to bypass the cortex and connect straight to the midbrain.

I think you’ll quickly find there’s a difference.

I’m not religious about watching CNBC, but I do take it in regularly at the gym while I’m on the treadmill or elliptical trainer and I’ve never heard of this guy. That means I’ve never heard of his fund, either.
