Dear Mr. Rundell (or can I call you
First of all I would like to tell you that your Rogue Investor has played a
major role in helping me make investment decisions that have proven to be
important for me. Amounts involved were not huge, about 4,000 or 5,000 dollars
each time, but I feel that you helped me understand the importance of common
sense in investing. At the beginning I thought I'd never be able to take
control of my investments: now I know that this is possible and even amusing.
thank you and kind regards
