This guys flips flops with the best of em:

Unfortunately, some people actually track your calls Barry and don’t fall for the BS. Those of us who are familiar with your little games know how you work. You are basically always hedged to win. We’re in a “secular bear” and a “cyclical bull” so you basically can’t be wrong. But within that you write hundreds of articles a month. Some bullish and some more bearish. When you need to you just cherry pick what suits your personal interests.

For instance, back on February 24th 2009 you said that we weren’t even close to bottoming: http://www.ritholtz.com/blog/2009/02/cap itulation-hardly-2/

But then miraculously just two weeks later everything had changed and you were very bullish. You often cite how you “called the bottom”. But then just one month later you were bearish again: http://www.ritholtz.com/blog/2009/04/bea r-market-rally-4/

But then just one month later we’re in a “cyclical bull” market: http://www.ritholtz.com/blog/2009/06/cyc lical-or-secular-bull/

But even throughout it all you’re constantly “hedged” and have protection and “tight stops” on all the time. I mean, even when you were wildly bullish and take credit for the rally you were really only about 60% invested with a HUGE 40% cash position: http://www.ritholtz.com/blog/2009/08/kas s-call-top/

60/40 isn’t exactly a conviction buy call, but in Barry’s “always hedged” world it can be painted however he wants it to be painted!!!!!! Yeay! You are always right. How incredible.

The smart people are on to your scam…..

He must have forgotten that the vast majority of Americans DON’T HAVE ANY CASH to go out and shop for these great bargains. They are the ones that need to work for less to stay employed thus creating these great bargains for those with too much money! Eat the rich…
