Raising my rating from one to five stars

I am raising my rating from one to five stars. Previously I had complained that the speakers did not have subject matter expertise and that the discussions were superficial. However this has changed. I see regularly great discussions on lesser known companies and dynamics. I have found great value in discussions from Brian Feroldi, Matt Frankel as well as a regular hosts Jason Moser and other Fools.
