His advice is real
For $99 a month I received trading ideas from a very successful former hedge fund manager. In Cody's words he wrote he does not know he would be where he is today not for his Apple pick when it was a $7 stock. I like that given as he also points out the S&P 500 is today where it was back in 1998. I need that kind of real analysis. Trading Jim Cramer style is for suckers. Cramer, like the rest of the talking heads makes his money talking not trading. Cody also points out that these days he(Cody) makes most of his cash writing and selling subscriptions to his web sites. I like that.

On the long side Cody today focuses today on a real growth industry like smart phone related companies pointing out there will be 1 billion smart phone users in 2020 up from 300 million today.On the short side he focuses on banks which as Cody points out would be insolvent not for the creative accounting they are allowed to do these days and all the free money they have been receiving from the Fed. He says he left Fox cause he could not always explain what he was trying to say in 140 characters or 30 second sound bites I call it. I found Cody's analysis refreshing and real in this instant gratification culture of ours. If I want to hear feel good analysis I can turn on CNBC or Bloomberg

A dart board will get you same results cheaper too.
The picks from his $100 a month subscription service are 50/50 like with most of these guys. In his own words Cody wouldn't be where he is today not for Apple which he bought when it was $7. Like most of the gurus out there he generates more revenue selling subscriptions than he does from investing(an inherent conflict of interest) . In his own words most of his cash has not been in markets for years.He had this horrible habit of name dropping and going into these poetry rants including rock band lyrics that had nothing to do with anything.

This Guy Is A Stock Guesser
His stock picks suck. He has no experience as a trader or money manager. He seems like he is flying by the seat of his pants. Calling for stocks to double and triple is like selling snake oil; only a sucker would listen to this guy.

HelpFULLY crazy
I haven't followed Cody's picks. I know he made a great call on Apple, but other than that, I do not know how his picks have fared. If you are a media star, you should be required to post your performance. It's called transparency. Nevertheless, I've read some of his stuff, and I like the way he is sticking his neck out on his latest barrage of picks. Hating the Dems and Repubs earns him major points with me even if his stock picks turn out to be crappy.

Good guy
I like Cody, he is a bit of a creature to look at but he is a good guy and makes a lot of sense. He gets away with his looks with his animation- they sort of go hand in hand I guess.

The only reason to watch FBN is now gone
have to admit I never watched Cody much mainly because FBN is horrifically bad. They have some talent there but the shows are so coated in propaganda and aimless production it's hopeless.

But of the FBN crew I did respect Cody. He always seemed direct, intellectually honest about his calls and reasonable about them. Plus some of his calls seemed pretty good. He was about the only guy on FBN with totally original opinions that didn't sound like an Roger Ailes morning memo regurgitation.

No matter the bias, I alwasy respect a guy who is own man,

A bit excitable for my tastes. I suppose passion makes for good tv but it doesn't make for good trading.And I don't really care for political commentary.

You gotta respect his totally epic pwnage of stock pumper Johnathan Lebed which I saw on youtube last year or so.

But it doesn't matter now. The flaming out of FBN continues as they just cancelled Happy Hour

good luck in your future endeavours Cody.

I like his style
Saw him on Kudlow, I like his style for forceful and energized, passionate, animated.... in addition I sort of like what he has to say..... although sometimes it's tough to follow him.

animated and enthusiastic
Watch this guy years ago on Jim Cramer "Real Money" radio show. I do remember the AAPL pick way back then and grit my teeth b/c I never bothered to buy it..... he's made some other picks as well. He is very animated and enthusiastic, pleasant to listen to.

As good as he used to be?
Years ago I heard Cody provided many great ideas and analysis back when Jim Cramer had his "Real Money" radio show. I think Cody said he bought AAPL back around $7. I'm just not sure if he's got that same edge as before.

Needs a hair cut; good hard baller
Cody, dude, get a haircut. And stop taking pictures with your hair blowing in the wind. You're supposed to be a hard-assed dude that does your show from a bar. Like Tim said, screw the rules and have a few cold ones on air.

The best form Cody's been in was when he pwned Jon Lebed on Fox Biz. Do a YouTube search for both of their names together, you'll see what I'm talking about.
