Harry Newton's In Search of The Perfect Investment, Technology Investor. Harry Newton
AM ET, Monday, December 21, 2009: Weekend
reading/research turned up nothing worth reporting this morning.
When in doubt,
stay out. Cash is king.
I could brag about
tennis on Sunday, but then I've have to be humble about tennis on Saturday.
See you tomorrow.
+ To understand
Christmas, you have to know the story. With Chanukah, the story is the same
as all Jewish holidays. They tried to kill us. We survived. So let's eat.
+ Many Christians
believe in the virgin birth. Jews think, "Joseph, Bubela, snap out of it.
Your woman is pregnant, you didn't sleep with her, and now you want to blame
God. Here's the number of my shrink".
+ Christmas is
a time of great pressure for husbands and boyfriends. Their ladies expect special
gifts. Jewish men don't have that burden. No one expects a diamond ring on Chanukah.
Maybe a new head for their electric toothbrush, but certainly not a diamond.
Clean teeth. Joy to the world.
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
