Good advice rarely changes

Jason Zweig, writer of the Intelligent Investor column at the Wall Street Journal, once said:

My job is to write the exact same thing between 50 and 100 times a year in such a way that neither my editors nor my readers will ever think I am repeating myself. That’s because good advice rarely changes, while the markets change constantly.

From here on in I’m going to be incorporating these weekly updates into my monthly letters. I’ve enjoyed every moment of writing them over the years and I appreciate every reply, critic, and comment received. Things have been getting busier around here, business is growing, and I think my Friday mornings will be better spent on managing our portfolios and advising our clients. Thank you for reading and I hope you’re looking forward, as I am, to the next monthly update.
