Shutting Down The Site

Dear Readers,

Thank you so much for your support over the past six years. It has been a joy of mine to get to know many of you and discuss ideas that would help you improve your lifestyle and pursue your life goals.

When I first started writing articles in 2011, I was just a college student—not even old enough to legally purchase a beer!—and many of you read my work on Seeking Alpha and offered suggestions that really turbo-charged my own development and pointed me in the direction of identifying the characteristics of stocks that create wealth if you purchase them at a fair price and then pry your hands around the stock certificate. Many of you have been decades ahead of me, and have built sizable fortunes just by loading up on shares of Philip Morris, ExxonMobil, or Abbott Laboratories and never looking back.

In 2013, I was able to launch this blog as a side hobby because it is possible to squeeze out some free time when you’re still toiling away as a full-time student.

Unfortunately, the current demands on my time as a full-time attorney no longer make it possible for me to publish updates to the site on a regular basis. I have done my best to keep the site up and running because I do enjoy the audience that I have built up here, but I can no longer give it the attention that it deserves. I have two weeks of prewritten content built up, and those articles will get published at 10:20 AM CST every day through February 7th. But after that, there will be no more updates to the site.

However, I will continue the newsletter and will be able to expand my writing efforts there a little bit because I won’t be writing here on or anywhere else (if you are interested in purchasing the site, please include an inquiry via my contact form).

My plan for the expanded newsletter rollout is this. Instead of giving updates just once per month, I will now be sending out 4 updates per month (with most of them being sent out on Sundays). This will enable me to focus my attention on the biggest items of interest in the stock market by filtering out news of secondary importance. The substance of future newsletter updates will focus on discussions of large-cap stocks trading at fair prices and the small-cap stocks here and there that have caught my attention. I will also include some bolt-on information about general investment strategy as well.

For right now, I am keeping the price of the monthly newsletter subscription at $9.99 (this includes for those who sign up today). However, at some point in the next week or so, I will raise the monthly price to $14.99 which will be posted on the site and then there will be no updates from me thereafter.

To my long-term readers: Thank you for your patronage and support over the past six years. It has truly been a joy of mine to engage with such an analytical audience that pays close attention to facts and seeks to structure the financial aspect of their lives in a manner that is truly built for the long term.

Hopefully, this is not a final farewell, and I would be gratified if you joined me as I switch to focused content through my newsletter that will now be updated four times per month instead of just once.

If you would like to keep reading my work and follow me to the newsletter, you can pick up a subscription of The Conservative Investor Digest here.
