Rob Black, genius or not?

I started recording Rob Black's TV show along with PBS' "Nightly Business Report" when the mortgage mess news began recently. Black may be local, he's on an independent station in San Francisco. My take with just a few viewings is that he really knows his stuff but is pushing what I believe is media (and government) correct advice: stay in the market! He's also giving his viewpoint here and there on the TV station's 4 p.m. news. Are you familiar with him?

According to his website, he is local to the Bay Area. Maybe he has been franchised out to other areas. I haven't heard him, but that doesn't mean anything!

Rob Black is a favorite of mine and I highly recommend him. He has a definite point of view and you probably won't agree with everything he says, but he is a smart guy, knowlegable and seems very objective.

He answers a lot of caller questions including giving opinions on specific stocks and he gives very straight answers. My favorite thing about him and his show is that he has a hard time being PC. If he thinks something is a POS, he usually says so. He also really, really hates Suze if that tells you anything.

In addition to being on local TV, he also runs seminars in the area, usually with a real estate guy and a financial planner. Half day events, no selling, for $5 or $10, which, if I remember correctly, all goes to charity.

He is only local at this time, but his show (Rob Black and Your Money) is also available on the web at Welcome to Robblack.com if you want to try a show.

I've now watched enough of his shows to agree with Anansi. One thing I've liked is the way he shows what a good stock chart should look like; how to choose a stock to invest in. As I understand it, he concentrates on asset accumulation.

I was concerned about him because I used to think his show was an infomercial for his seminars. And then the independent station started to apparently upgrade his image. Now he could be confused for an anchorman on the 4:00 p.m. news. He brings on financial planners as experts who also advertize on his show.

P.S. he also skewers that Cramer guy.
