"Contrarian Investments" is currently 16 days behind updating their record, and checking their Twitter feed they appear to be 4-7 since the update. So they are advertising a +8.27% overall profit which would be -2.15% if graded correctly, and roughly -20 or -21% if the record were current.

Pretty safe to call these "Contrarian Investment" guys a complete fraud now. They got a bit hot in late April and then updated their record as of May 4th claiming +12.66% since the fund's inception, but that didn't correct the error from February where units were added instead of subtracted, so the actual record on May 4th was +2.24%. Then he finished the year 3-9 for -34.5% and hasn't updated his record since. So he's actually -32.26%, a far cry from the +12.66% he's currently advertising. (I got the 3-9 from the plays he's tweeted but did not include in his website record.)

He just tweeted this the other day, congratulating his "first class of 4 interns"

So this clown has FOUR interns working for him but isn't able to update twelve picks in his record FOUR months later? I'm sure it's just a coincidence that those plays lost!

I guess none of the utter horseshit that happens in Vegas should surprise me any more but it actually does surprise me that nobody is checking these advertised records for any modicum of accuracy.
