Harry Newton's In Search of The Perfect Investment
Technology Investor. Auction Rate Securities. Auction Rate Preferreds.
8:30 AM EST, Friday, August 22, 2008: The
most fascinating thing going on this morning is the long interview on CNBC with
Warren Buffett. I had planned on a big piece this morning on getting rich in
Belgium and all the travel tips I'd learned. But I'm glued to Buffett and I'm
cleaning up from the trip (the pile of mail was 2 feet deep).
the "BIG" Belgium update/travel tips will have to wait until Monday.
Thanks for your indulgence.
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 address
is . You can't
click on my email address. You have to re-type it . This protects me from software
scanning the Internet for email addresses to spam. I have no role in choosing
the Google ads on this site. Thus I cannot endorse, though some look interesting.

you do. That money, if there is any, may help pay Michael's business school
