Comments on: Suze Orman’s bad investment newsletter http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2012/01/22/suze-ormans-bad-investment-newsletter/ 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: TFF http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2012/01/22/suze-ormans-bad-investment-newsletter/comment-page-1/#comment-35422 Mon, 30 Jan 2012 00:47:24 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/?p=11993#comment-35422 “she did tell you to shop around for car insurance”

…a product that can’t (or shouldn’t) be selected strictly on price. Try filing a claim with the wrong insurer and your headache will be three times the check that they grudgingly cut you a month later.

private jet then by all means purchase her products and watch her on TV. The advice offered, with that saccarine smirk and lame “girlfriend” greeting, is very basic. Ask yourself this, did she protect you from the real estate flop? get in early on gold? locate a stock that would triple? well of course not..but she did tell you to shop around for car insurance…quick where is my wallet!

She is not credible in the least, while in her travels selling her ‘advise’, her books, whatever anyone will buy to make her more money. She is a bad joke as far as financial advise goes. Excellent piece, Felix…..

Good work as ever Felix. Thanks for this.

Checking the numbers of TV hucksters and financial newsletter hawksters. I’ve long gone on the supposition that they’re all bogus, of course, but nice to see someone doing the math for once.

Suze Orman seems like she isn’t satisfied with the considerable wealth she’s been able to amass for herself dispensing personal finance advice, being a television commentator, etc. and has moved almost completely into the business of being a huckster. Being a personal finance guru is now just a way of collecting credibility so as to increase the market potential of her various “branded” products and services.

Some folks just have no shame.

Yeah, I imagine that the owner took a one person poll. And they were the only person in the room.
