I started to list all the things we learned about investing in 2009, with the goal to find a bunch of things to be grateful for. The list got pretty short pretty fast. It was headlined by the fact that few money managers recognized the March bottom. Most were stuck like deer in headlights.

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.

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 address is . You can't click on my email address. You have to re-type it .
