No, I think I'll just move to a place where I don't have to read your drivel, nor that of people like ronstaug who have no intention of contributing anything useful, as he has "neither the time or interest to put into investing", and considers us all lowlifes who have to "grovel for dividends". That is the kind of people you support, so why would I want to have anything to do with you?
I strive for accuracy and truth, and when people are too lazy or stupid to provide it, but instead simply make grandoise statements in an attempt to distract from their shortcomings, I get irritated. How many times did I ask you to clarify some of your claims on WRK, only to get gibberish in return?
Yes, you got lucky with WRK, but it never was the "perfect" investment you always made it out to be. There was a sector rotation into the REITs, and that accounts for most of the strength. And WRK grossly underperformed most dividend plays anyway. To see ronstaug thank you for that pick makes me laugh, as his other "hot stocks" are just as underwhelming. You two do make a good pair.
I will continue to do my DD, but will just keep it between myself and a few select individuals. I surely do not need to post on this board.
So, canadafan, you can puff out your chest and be proud that you chased "the bully" off this board. Too bad you have nothing to offer in exchange.
I will not be looking at this board again, so whatever cute reply you make will go unread by me. But I am sure you will post anyway, as that is your MO.
To everyone else, good luck with your investments, and I truly hope the things I fear most do not come about. The world is in a tough spot, and it will take a lot of hard work and sacrifice to get the world economy back on track. Don't believe anything you read, and rely on your own DD and instincts.
And I do thank the many serious investors who have conversed with me over the years, even those who seldom posted publicly. Those discussions were a great help in formulating my investment plans over time.
Good luck to all, and enjoy the summer.
