I remember reading on TMF USA many years back, there was some old well-known investor who had written newsletters that were quite popular here. I believe he passed away and I think maybe his daughter posted on TMF to say thanks for the messages of condolence?
Someone posted up links to PDFs of the newsletters but by the time I found the thread, the links didn’t work.
I cannot remember the person’s name and I cannot find the old threads. Does anyone have any idea who/what I’m talking about here?
Gosh, I do not know… Do you remember any of the things that poster liked to post about?
Literally the only things I remember are:
plus a general outpouring of praise for the guy. It was likely a value investing guy.
Maybe it was the guy who used to publish the wonderful Outstanding Investor Digest (OID).
I don’t think that was the guy I’m thinking of, but I’ll double check. Thanks.
This is looking maybe more like it. Thanks, I’ll investigate this too see if I can dig up some threads.
Another person it could have been is John Templeton. His relative, Lauren Templeton, is a nice lady who is in the money management business.
Richard Russell was also a good read
Labadal, MrPlunger - thanks, I’ll look into it.
May have been the coffee can portfolio guy.
I think it’s him who had the daughter swing by, but forget the name.
I’m thinking it was Reitnut (Ralph Block) who wrote the REIT newsletter. Some relevant posts:
