Randolph McDuff

I'd like to suggest Canadian Randolph McDuff who runs the RMG1 portfolio on Marketocracy. I've followed him for a couple years now but sure wish I'd been following his moves for the past decade.

One stock he'd made a viable case for was NVO which I 'out and out' copycatted. In my account it's gone from under 50 to over 120 where I sold out - possibly mistakenly so.

His alpha according to the site is over 18%.

Hi AlbertaSunwapta,

If memory serves, his integrity is questionable.... google.

Yes now that you mention that when I first started to read about him I recall some very negative stories. (I'd actually forgotten all about those opinions.) Was there any thing of substance?

I seem to recall that his problems arose when he was a broker or something. Hopefully those issues are in his past and of no relevance to his current, seemingly great, stock picking abilities.

Can you post any links about those integrity issues?

Back to stock picking - here's a discussion of his on railroads...

Randolph McDuff's investment record is probably genuine and certainly impressive. His record at Marketocracy speaks for itself. I personally wouldn't object if gurufocus starts tracking his picks, but it's good to know the full story.


Here, McDuff is named in an investigation into 11m worth of fraud. [www.cartac.org]

Here, the company settles. MSC publishes some details of McDuff's behaviour. [www.msc.gov.mb.ca]

Here's an opinion by the national post. [www.investorvoice.ca]

Fascinating. Thanks for the research!

Now was it a problem with clients having having a bad advisor, or an advisor having bad clients. As we've seen a couple times in the past number of years, a lot of people should not be investing in equity markets.

The moment you see the WoW Gold, I believe you would think of the Cheap WoW Gold. Yes , it is not hard for you to combine Buy Maplestory Mesos with the Maple Story NX Cash Card. Now many people are interested in the game. Would you like to play it? And how much do you know about Cheap Maplestory Mesos? Just have a go!

another link... However, in seeing his investment record over the past decade I would sure love to see what some of the former clients think now. Were they valid concerns, did he learn on their backs or what? Nonetheless, I'm only interested in idea generation and reading buy/sell rationales.
