Apologies For Going Dark Briefly

Sorry about turning off the blog briefly. I had published some of my statistics over the weekend which showed a road map to potentially really outperformed the market. It was so compelling, that I have massively sold my other stock positions and will be re-positioning my portfolio. I had jokingly commented that it was so powerful, that if someone wanted to start a hedge fund using the approach that you could probably get rich.

It appears I was not the only person thinking along those lines. Probably within three hours of my posting, I received an email from one of my followers staying he was trying to raise funds to start a hedge fund using some of my concepts improving Greenblatts Magic Formula.  He of course wants an "exclusive" as he is worried that the more publicity some of this blogs findings get, the less valuable they will be. Now I am not 100% convinced that many people who could move the needle are reading my blog. Nor am I convinced that I have enough data or long enough time horizon to convince third parties to invest significant sums.

I am not sure whether I will (or even want to be involved) with that endeavor. But I have decided for the near term to restrict access to my blog during the next month.  So I am making my blog by invitation only for the near term. Thanks for your understanding and readership!

I was worried that JG was pressuring you on publishing their list on your site. Hence going dark...

Appreciate the invite and look forward to following your future posts.

BTW, for my latest Sept MFI tranch, I went with high div +5B stocks (Basically +2.5% div and part of the S&P). I'm getting a little skittish on the smaller caps.
