May I introduce myself. I have worked for a half century in the field of economics and securities, and have seen just about everything that can happen.
My greatest joy has been my devoted family and friends who regale me with life as it happens. The range of these people has covered the map of all that might be imagined. They have been literally saints on earth, braggarts, beggars, inspirational voices of hope, traitors, and heroes
I have won numerous forecasting contestants. These have included several economic and stock market forecasts of the Wall Street Journal, as well as those of other organizations.
My Investment philosophy is basic and simple. I invest only in companies that dominate their industries, and thereby can exert strong control over their profit margins. I also invest only in companies that pay handsome dividends. These payments force discipline on companies.
