Richard, even though I'd 'traded' with brokers and traded brokers before I subscribed with you, I owe everything to you back about 1991 when I had left my job and was intrigued by the ticker tape, and I subscribed to Profitable Investing and followed your advice—i.e., buy Mobil and McDonald's and Cathay Pacific Airlines, PG I think, and many others I can't recall, and I kept a handwritten ledger of buys and sells, recommended you to various people and my sons, because you gave me the confidence to buy and sell and make profit, I think in all the stocks I bought back then. You also taught us about stops and I especially liked that you told us in which accounts were best to have the different kinds of investments. I learned; my husband didn't. I remember you recommended Buckeye Partners way back and I held it for years. That got me started on MLPs! I told my husband last year that you were the best advisor because you were conservative, and so this year he's invested with you—he's in some of your recommended bond funds. He's 82 and I'm 73 and finally learned to be conservative and I love dividend payers. He now understands that concept, too, which was foreign to him years ago. (Now, if I can learn to tell him NO when he wants to put stops on MY MLPs, which I can't get back into because they went up.)
