My first introduction to Dick's investment strategy came in the mid '80s working for Brown & Root (now KBR). We work working in Scotland on engineering and construction projects for oil and gas developments. Dr. Larry Farmer was my boss and followed Dick. I immediately recognised the apparent fundamental logic to the approach Dick describes in detail. I have accumulated wealth and was able to keep my portfolio in place during the downturn while having a compound rate of return.
