John & Bob Loved To Exchange Ideas.
Sir John's wisdom lives on: Our spiritual and financial pathfinder Sir John Templeton ( left ) exchanging ideas with editor Bob Flaherty has "gone home" as Sir John called dying. His wisdom lives on.
Look globally in every country for bargains. Seek the least popular and best buys as measured by comparative price- earnings ratios and other value screens. Be contrarian. When nearly everyone thinks and acts quarterly, have the discipline to look out at least three years and buy what will become popular again. Take profits and invest some of your gains in new bargains. Be humble! When you make a mistake admit it as quickly as possible. Diversify by industry, investment style and especially geographic region. In this unpredictable world, no more than 25% of your equity holdings should be invested in the stocks of any one country, especially your own. Don't sit on too much cash. Remember you will never live to see a year when a U.S. dollar will buy in December as much as it did in January! Above all, be optimistic for the long run. Don't waste time worrying. In the short run try to turn every negative into a positive. Stress positive thinking! Have purpose. Everyday focus on what is positive and productive. See opportunities you would of missed. Happiness can not be found by seeking it directly. It is a by product of living a life of serving others.

International investors flew from Medellin over 500 miles deeper toward the Columbian border with Ecuador before transferring to military helicopters which landed guided by brush fires lit by heavily armed soldiers. Everyone exiting, including South American Gold President Ray De Motte (left) and Editor Bob Flaherty (right) , was ordered to keep moving quickly because FARC guerillas were rumored to be in the area. Next came a bumpy winding ride up around a mountain to South American Gold's (SAGD.OB) initial Santacruz Gold Project in the least explored most dangerous and therefore least picked over part of Columbia. Alas SAGD terminated the venture but the ride was fun.
We experiment to get spectacular response.
We featured enhanced CEO conference presentations to very small
groups in highly readable old Forbes
short story style snapshots.
At 82 Bob still feels a thrill hitting one more pitch out of ballpark! Please consider making your company or fund one of our profiles or a BUY report in an upcoming issue.

Legal Services Inc. is a
classic case history on how to defeat abusive short sellers.
Bob Flaherty notes that there is nothing wrong with legitimate short
selling. However, abusive short selling where proper share borrowing
is not followed or manipulative untrue rumors are spread can lead to the
destruction or stunting the growth of many promising ventures. Besides testifying before Congress on the subject, Flaherty
has written or edited over 100 articles on abusive short sellling and been
labeled "a crusader" who has been responsible for many reforms. The ShortBuster Day his old friend
gadfly Ray Dirks and Bob ran spotlighted good things about 30
companies that the main stream press which was close to many abusive
shorts neglected to include. Under unfair attack by
secret naked short sellers, Pre-Paid Legal Services, SafeCard
Services (which had been attacked over 30 consecutive times by Barron's)
and totally ignored
Cheyenne Software saw their shares zoom. All hell broke loose when Wholesome & Hearty's
idealistic founder finally got to tell his side. A sickly youth, he dedicated himself to
helping people eat better so they would live longer. The instant his dream
went public he was branded a bad guy! There was an avalanche of naked short
selling and smears. However his IPO had not yet deposited
shares to borrow. That ment the huge short position was mostly naked because there were no shares to legally borrow.
Overnight the short position disappeared. That stock rose 540%- more
than any other stock on
NASDAQ that year. Earlier with Cameron Associates IR founder
Rod O'Connor, Bob ran The Short Symposium which led to importaint reforms. Alas recently new abusive shorts, some secret, have arisen to plague job
creating CEOs. We hope regulators will get after the abusers before 1,000
companies are killed! That is how many companies went under the last time
sleepy regulators didn't do their jobs and act promptly until Congress called them on the
Nov. 29, 2014: Remembering the fairy tale life of one of America's first female financial writers courageous Clare Reckert. The New York Times' first female financial writer and it's first to get a Times' byline, Clare had to misspell her first name Claire without an (i). A male boss wanted readers to think she was a man. Her efforts for gender parity at The New York Times infuriated the males so much her passing at age 100 didn't receive even a single line of obit in the print edition of the paper. Way to go guys!
