Default These 5 Terrible Stocks Are Crushing the Market

http://www.fool.com/investing/genera...hpsitth0000001

I see what they're saying and why they're saying it. For the long-term their picks probably make the most sense, however the longer we hold a stock, the less we can be sure about it's future right? However, for short-term investments as they show, you could have made a killing. With the stock market being so unpredictable and possibly ready to crash (the conditions are ripe for it), I would sell any stock that has a decent profit.

Motley Fool sells their tip service hard, and I'm guessing their subscribers would have missed out on great opportunities if they would be willing to take some risk.

Even worse, I suggested that readers look into three companies with better fundamentals: graphics chipmaker NVIDIA (Nasdaq: NVDA), seed and pesticide giant Monsanto (NYSE: MON), and pharmacy Walgreen. Their performance?
