Just Otto being Otto and you know what, I like people who are difficult. I like people who 'have a problem' with things being too comfy and settled. Those are two qualities that describe me pretty well [edit 6:21... Yikes!! On re-read, it sounds like I am describing myself as comfy and settled... no no no... I tend to be difficult and have a problem with 'comfy and settled' is what I meant, sheesh]. I like people who know what they think and back it up. I even like shit disturbers, because they are in motion and not asleep at the switch, serving only their own egos.
What I also like is the extremely hard work this man does in his weekly letter. There is a reason I am able to write a weekly newsletter, disclaim that I am most definitely not a stock analyst, and still have confidence in the portfolio I use to illustrate how I am backing up the analysis at any given time. IKN Weekly and MetalAugmentor, along with a few subscribers - notably the estimable 'FL' - are invaluable to me with regard to quality mining stock selections. Yes, there are some of my own picks in there as well, but hey, I have been around the sector a long time.
I cannot believe the detail that each and every edition of IKN goes into. This is not easy work folks. Otto becomes intimately involved with the stocks he highlights and this gives his subscribers the security of knowing that someone who actually cares - as opposed to pitches newsletters - is on the job each and every week. Reco MENDED.
But anyway, I wanted to publicly acknowledge Otto and thank him for setting me straight and then posting what he did yesterday. A true mensch, prickly as he can be :-).
