Who Does Klinger Recommend?

Every Saturday morning I go for a workout around 10 am at my local Lifetime Fitness. They have a bank of TV's and patrons can use their headset radios to tune in a variety of stations. At that time, I usually choose Fox News, which airs an investment show titled "Cashin' In." "Cashin' In" is hosted by Terry Keenan and features stock picks by several investment "experts:" Jonathan Hoenig, Dagen McDowell, Jonas Max Ferris and Wayne Rodgers.

One look at Wayne Rodgers and you will immediately recognize him as Trapper John McIntyre from the television show M*A*S*H (not Eliot Gould who portrayed Trapper in the 1970 film, and not Pernell Roberts, who played him on Trapper John, M.D.). Why in the world would someone take financial advice from a guy who left the most successful show on television after a mere three years. Rodgers was the role model for brilliant career moves by the likes of Shelley Long and David Caruso.

Rodgers recommendations include Norfolk Southern (NSC) and Universal American Financial (UHCO). Let's see how he stacks up against Sisyphus' Haliburton (HAL) pick. Or Jamie Farr's favorite, Anne Taylor (ANN).
