most of the performance data are available on the funds website. Gurufocus should hire someone to go there and compile this data, that will make the premium subscription worth the fee..

How are premium members of GuruFocus supposed to evaluate the list of Gurus when more often than not there is no historical performance records. Most of the time the "profile/performance" tab does not have anything on performance. Why not? Maybe it should just be called the "profile" tab. This is very frustrating.

Also, if you do not have the performance record, then how do you even know that they deserve to be in the Guru list? Maybe they should not be listed?
