While I have disagreed with him—sometimes vehemently—over the years about politics, I have never doubted his expertise in the financial realm. I don't even know how many years I've been a subscriber, but it's been at least 15, and over that time I have learned SO much. I deal with Vanguard and manage my own account. I learned from my parents not to trust brokers very much, and seeing as I'm a "relatively intelligent," well-educated person, I figured with good advice I could do it myself, and I have, with Dick's help. Whenever he offers advice I check it out and very often follow it, and it's made the world of difference in my life. The recent downturn has not adversely affected my portfolio. In fact, with the "safe" investments I now have, I'm better off today than I was a year ago. I'll keep on reading the Intelligence Report and trusting that Richard Young will lead me in the right direction.
