Are pie charts a good reason to fire your stock broker?
I suppose my broker doesn't really have any say as to what Raymond James sends out to his clients, but this puts me on the verge of revolving. Is that bad? He is a great guy, but one has to take a stand, right?
The pie chart is bad enough, but then they:
- Added crazy marks to some of the slices (I guess that's because it's in B&W)
- Labeled the slices to two decimals (way too precise for me)
- Didn't sort the slices in descending order
A simple bar chart would be just fine thank you.
