Mark Hulbert Rating: Bob Brinker's Marketimer Newsletter

In the March 2008 issue of "The Hulbert Financial Digest" newsletter tracker Mark Hulbert says Bob Brinker's best performing portfolio (Model Portfolio #1 for aggressive investors) under performs buy and hold before you account for Bob Brinker's October 2000 QQQ advice.
"Brinker’s fund selections on average have lagged the market. The HFD reports an 11.5% annualized gain for his “Aggressive” portfolio, which is 0.9 percentage points per year less than what this portfolio would have made if each of its funds were invested in the DJ Wilshire 5000 during the times they were owned.

Footnote #9: "Please note: In late 2000, Brinker forecasted a several-month bear market rally and recommended an investment in the NASDAQ 100 Index—a trade that turned out quite unprofitably. However, because Brinker at the time of making this forecast chose not to make this trade part of his model portfolios, his HFD record has not suffered as a result."

Add Bob Brinker’s QQQ trade and anyone who followed Brinker's QQQ advice for aggressive investors lost another 30% from his portfolio!
