David Haselhurst has joined money magazine

A particularly interesting interview was the last one, with David Haselhurst. Haselhurst writes 'The Speculator' column with The Bulleting. Over thirty odd years, the imaginary portfolio that is held by that column has outperformed even Berkshire Hathaway.

The problem is that the portfolio has remained just that: imaginary. Haselhurst does not trade in shares that he writes about, worrying that to do so is to engage in a conflict of interest. Obviously, Rene Rivkin and he did not read the same book on journalist ethics.
Each chapter is followed by a three or four line summary, presented as a 'Quick Lesson.' These can be very simple (don't trust what companies claim on their own websites) to more complex (discounting future revenue growth by some estimated cost factor).
The chapters are short and the science not too challenging. This is a good little book that makes for good reading in a place such as an airport lounge.

As inevitable as it may have been, the closure of The Bulletin is a tragedy for Australian journalism (writes Simon Canning).

For 128 years the magazine was a cradle for news and opinion with a particularly Australian point of view.

At times those views went beyond racist, yet it gave Australian’s a clear view of their place in the world.

How highly do you rate this guy advice for shares.
Going by the figures that the bulletin shows he seems to be amazingly
correct.

Not sure about his tips other than to say if everyone else who reads
the Bulletin is acting on them too then there wouldn't be any special
advanatge as the market would adjust prices accordingly.
The only other insight I can offer is that he seems to like at a beer
or two at regular intervals at my local in Paddo. Whether this improves
his deduticve skills or not for picking undervalued penny dreadfulls is
debatable.

He does seem to be successfull.
I have noticed that he runs a bank overdraft each week of around $13000 and
does not seem to place an interest expense relating to this at the end of
the year.
Also do his figures each week include brokerage fees ?
