I always called him Richard “Bland”, because of the conservative nature of his recommendations. He deserves credit for two things: (1) He has always emphasized dividend paying stocks to be purchased when in value mode;
(2) his copy is always a “good read” and of educational value.
It has been a few years since I stopped my subscription, but more recently, judging from the promotional email teasers I receive, he seems to be joining the more boisterous doom and gloom group exemplified by Martin Weiss and gang. “The world will fall apart but I will save you” type of promotion. His ability to pull that off is highly questionable when you consider his track record, which is good if you believe beating the S&P by seldom more than 2% is good enough. He cannot claim much more than that, and Hulbert’s Financial Digest doesn’t rate him highly either. But, what the heck,
2% better than S&P might be something to brag about these days. Let’s just say, if you have significant savings, Profitable Investing may help you keep it. If you don’t, don’t count on Richard Bland to lead you to riches.
