I'm not under any illusion that I'm going to find the next Warren Buffett, but someone who's half as good will still be a successful investment. Over on the TMF message boards, turb0kat, just reminded me about Michael Smith and his impressive history of generating solid returns. For some reason I have never invested alongside him, despite the fact that he is a favorite in some circles. He certainly uses lots of tricks and trinkets with his companies, along the lines of a John Malone type figure after drinking Red Bull. I certainly cannot profess to know a whole lot more about Michael Smith than that, but I plan on tracking his investment vehicle here in CAPS and to do more research on him in the near future.
If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite a strong four-star rating, MFC may not be your top choice.
