As Figure 2 illustrates, GuruFocus members can also invite other members to join their discussion. The Discussion Board complements other features like the

Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio) Baskets feature and the Stock Notes feature, in which users can vote a stock to a specific basket and then explain their reasons as a note.
