He is a scam
His company does not manage any money at all. He is part of the reason wall street is such a joke.

Something amiss
Something amiss with this Altucher guy. He's very smart with very well thought out ideas but for some reason they don't move the way he thinks..... In other words, you'll lose money with ideas that seem smart. I think he uses the stock to fit his idea or agenda without really looking into the stock and thinking whether it will perform or not..... I can give you lots of reasons why horrible stocks are a great buy and lots of reasons why great stocks are not a good buy..... but you really have to look very carefully to ask which stocks are more likely to move based on previous price action. This guy really reminds of Cramer, great presentation but for someone reason loses you money!! I don't want a stock debater I want a stock picker with results. Better guys to listen to.

Jim Cramer byproduct
Seems like nothing but a pawn to Cramer. He lacks an honest character and I don't think you can take him seriously as he is more of a writer..and for the street.com at that.

smart but...
To an amatuer, Altucher sounds smart and worthy of listening to because his ideas make sense.

To a pro trader, he sounds smart but a danger to listen to because ideas that make sense hardly ever work out.

I'm not sure if he's just desperate for attention or air time...he seems to get a lot of it, but if you follow his advise, you'll lose money.

His calls have been mediocre
I like James, don't get me wrong, but he's right about half the time. I believe he is honest with his opinions, which is more than I can say for most people in this ridiculous industry, but some of his picks are terrible.

Smartest Guy in the Room
Financial genius. They need him on CNBC a lot more, when he talks you get a glimpse at just how high his comprehension of the financial realm is. Great trading ideas, hyper-logical, probably has brains oozing out of his ears.

Very Intelligent and Insightful
James Altucher's advice has made me money, period. He's very underrated, because he seems mostly a contrarian/value guy in a world of Fast Money types. He seems to know how to make a fast trade as well though. I have followed him into picks of DPS, PAL, MKL, TEG, TIE and they have all paid off eventualy.. If I had never heard of James Altucher, I would have never heard of Renaissance Technologies, Monish Pabrai, merger arbitrage, closed end fund arbitrage, NCAV stocks, etc either. His books are fast reads packed with tangible info.
