if we are going to be honest with ourselves, how many stocks in our portfolio did we discover completely independently, without anyone from bnn or any other media outlet? 


i think everyone understands a fund manager is not going to talk up a stock if they dont have a position and similarily they are not going to buy a stock if they dont think it has upside potential, apart from them promoting it and having it appreciate on the backs of the retail investor.


i dont think anyone is suggesting they have to go out and buy cpg, or any other stock, as soon as a fund manager says he likes it, on tv.
