In 1998, I was completely ignorant about finances.I was also unsatisfied with the "popular" junk that passed for advice.I stumbled across Intelligence Report, subscribed, and have been at it ever since.
I invested following Dick's advice and using his Master Lists and recommended structure.Here are some results (15 years):
$42,000 became $79,000.I reinvest dividends, buy good quality, and hold.
I bought gold at $800 (later than recommended) in my two satellite portfolios. That is up 40%.
Vanguard has saved me incredible amounts of "management fees", and both my Wellesley and Wellington shares have grown from investor shares to Admiral shares.
Biggest success? My one biggest success was finding Intelligence Report.
