The old joke: if they really knew that the stuff they were telling clients was accurate, they wouldn´t be giving advice, they would be rich...
A bit of a half-empty cup mentality, isn't it?
And yes, I am very happy with my stock picking methodology, but most importantly the returns. They have never failed, except when I did - most often when I got greedy. Most methods work. Just people get greedy.
As for rich - yes, I was, until my divorce. :twisted: Now I have to build from scratch, but I know I can because I have done it already! Being a daytrader is not a 9-to-5 job. It's more like a 7-to-7, on an easy day, and six days a week... and still have to watch the market throughout the weekend.
