Harry Newton's In Search of The Perfect Investment, Technology Investor. Harry Newton
AM ET, Tuesday, December 22, 2009: Spent
yesterday checking on an offshore private equity investment. Some of the investments
are good. Some are bad. The overall results are semi-awful. But hope reigns
supreme, like all my other private equity investments with Goldman Sachs and
Citigroup Down, but not out. At least not out enough for them to stop paying
Then checked into
some possible stockmarket index investments. Nothing of excitement to report
When in doubt,
stay out. Cash remains king.
Spent most of
last night drinking the most awful stuff to get ready for this morning's colonoscopy
-- just a checkup. What a wonderfully easy way to lose weight. I haven't eaten
since Sunday night. This gives excitement a whole meaning.
I promise to be
brilliant and funny tomorrow. It's too early.
This column is about my personal search
for the perfect investment. I don't give investment advice. For that you have
to be registered with regulatory authorities, which I am not. I am a reporter
and an investor. I make my daily column -- Monday through Friday -- freely available
for three reasons: Writing is good for sorting things out in my brain. Second,
the column is research for a book I'm writing called "In Search of the
Perfect Investment." Third, I encourage my readers to send me their
ideas, concerns and experiences. That way we can all learn together. My email
