    Buy High,

    In answer to your question about my stock trading. My position is that I have some core holdings, some medium term holdings 5 year range and then I do some short term trading. The short term trading is usually bought hoping for no more than a six month turnover.

    This makes money for me and is not for everyone, but I base it on the fact that one should have a variety the same as you should not have all your money in one industry, but should have several industries represented in what you own.

    In my personal opinion I do not see the company being worried about my opinion regardless of which of the above areas I would own stock.

    This will be the last personal question I will respond to unless I see a lot of you who have asked personal questions of me answer the same questions I have.

    Yours for better investing,
