Originally, he taught the average person how to do their own investing, and was surprisingly successful at timing the market. Later, he became a characterture of himself. He could never admit when he errored, such as the QQQ shares he recommended in the early 2000's and he totally missed the boat regarding the 2007 melt down. I learned a lot from listening to him from 86' to 2000' but I lost a lot of money from listening to him and buying his newsletter from 2000 to 2010, (when I finally realized that he was one of the sharks that he had always warned us about). Even to the end, he could never admit his errors and always covered up his mistakes as much as he could.
I've been listening to Bob Brinker for nearly two decades and I'm in my early 40's. Low-cost index investing and prioritizing maxing out retirement savings has helped me build financial security. He encourages his listeners to learn and avoid the industry sharks looking for a commission. I wouldn't be where I am now if it wasn't for his advice and the lessons learned from many of his callers.
I have been listening to Bob Brinker since the early 90s. He has made me a lot of money over the years. He told me when to get out of the market (I thought that he was crazy) and when to get back in ('he must be nuts') and he hit everything right on. Now he seems to be tired. He is on what - one weekend a month or something like that. I think that his heart is not in it... or he does not know when he should retire. Time for him to pack it in I hate to say. He has missed some market bumps. I am still making money though. I would rate him higher if he showed up every Sunday... and he does use the same old cliches. Is it true that he is no longer on Saturdays - not of his own choice? This is what I have read.
This guy is so off base. Dork keep quoting stats instead of reality.
Doesn't have a clue what's gonna happen as they quit faking the stock market and Oblunder care shows up.

I was listening to Bob today and a caller asked him what he thought of the talk that the Federal Reserve was created during a secret meeting on Jeckle Island. There are plenty of videos on the Fed these days and how they are raping our nation. He said it was all a conspiracy theory. In Bob's world there are no conspiracies so just stick your head back in the sand. I think he's a NWO puppet at this point.
I've been aboard the Starship Moneytalk almost since the maiden voyage. I was an investing novice those first few months, but Bob gently mentored those of us who turned in week after week since 1986. His newsletter also provides a very good diversified asset allocation strategy no matter where one is in their investing life. I know he has helped my family get to the Land of Critical mass. It is nice to see Mark Hulbert rank Bob's newsletter among the top market timing letters out there. Great job, Bob!
I have listened to Bob and enjoy his program. He's write a lot of the time but he is often wrong about day to day living. For example, more than once I've heard him challenge guests about the rising costs of food or base commodities. I don't know where Bob lives but I'm guessing he hasn't done his own shopping in a few years now. Food prices for people who actually cook (not buying junk food) are up almost 38% in the past 4 years. We keep a detailed budget and do not eat any more today than we did 4 years ago. My wife and I buy the same staples and fresh foods are up far more than the 2% he reports. He is wrong which makes me wonder if he's in the tank for one particular political machine.
I have been listening to BB for almost 20 years now, he has made many excellent choices and calls over the years. What people do forget is that we also make some bad choices we are not perfect we are only human.
Overall his advice has been very profitable for many people who stuck with his advice, but for those of you who did not stick to his advice it seems your upset.
I will continue to listen and subscribe to BB newsletter.
