Cramer, CNBC’s Mad Money and TheStreet.com “Even investors who concentrate on fundamentals can benefit from Jim DePorre’s Shark approach to investing. At the very least they will know why, for a time, they can get the facts right but the stock wrong.” --Herb Greenberg, senior columnist, MarketWatch.com “There are very few traders who have RevShark’s intuitive feel for the market. I especially appreciate Rev’s unique ability to recognize and utilize the distinct advantages of being a smaller, individual investor versus the less agile large institutions.” --Barry Ritholtz, Chief Investment Officer, Ritholtz Capital Partners As an individual investor, you can swim circles around the “whales” of Wall Street…by investing like a shark!
