Personal Info
Investment Philosophy: A disciple of indexing since the 1980s, long before the public or most pros understood the futility of active investing. Portfolio is mostly ultra low cost index funds, some individual blue chips and muni bonds. My "trading" is limited to selling my very rare losers for tax benefits. I use IHUB as a contrarian indicator and for the tomfoolery. I've never bought a penny stock
Hobby: Financial education. Stock and business fraud. Accounting gimmickry. Working with SEC and other agencies to shut down financial scams.

Read most investment classics including:
-Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds (1841)
-The intelligent Investor (Ben Graham)
-A Random Walk Down Wall Street (Burton Malkiel)
-Financial Shenanigans (Schilit
