How to search for a good stock?

RE: How to search for a good stock?
It is probably a lot easier -- and possibly more lucrative -- to sell tip sheets and courses, than actually managing an investment portfolio, regardless of whether the portfolio is funded by your own or other people's money. 

Not only do you earn from the subscriptions and course fees, but also enjoy a tailwind on your own portfolio by front running your students.

Best of all, you don't need to present an independently verified track record of your investment portfolio to convince your customers of your ability. Just show them a few profitable trades, hire a PR firm to get you into media spaces, and show them your media appearances.

So MF's revenue is between $2m and $20m annually. Margins must be high since overheads are low, and probably expands at a much slower rate than revenue. I should have started a tip sheet.

Though, it puzzles me why purported value investments experts will want to create more people who compete with them for cheap stocks in the market, which will harm their own investment returns in the long-run.

MAS' decision to regulate MF is interesting. And shows you how they perceive MF, and possibly other tip sheets with a growing subscriber base.

The BT article however does not explain how regulation is injuring MF's business, to the extent that they have to close shop. Paying some fees and maintaining some cash balance sounds par for the course. 

Maybe some others with better understanding of MF's business model can offer an explanation.
