The Greatest value investment of all time

There is one value investment that generates massive gains while remaining immune to market cycles, bubbles, fads, crashes, rates or the economy. It is relentlessly undervalued and, judging by the obesity secular bull market that continues longer than the great bond bull, shows few signs of trading at a premium anytime soon. The trend is not your friend. I am talking about good nutrition –...

The Soaring Twenties

A new decade begins in a couple months. Sure, take time to reflect on your life and the Teens that are ending but don’t spend too much energy there. What’s past is done.

I was impressed with the development of the technology, as I mentioned that day in the tweet below. Trade App is a commission-free mobile first trading platform with a social feature set that I can’t write about just yet. In addition...
