I’ve really enjoyed writing this blog over the past year. I didn’t expect all of the great things that have since occurred when I started writing this blog just over a year ago.
I started the blog as an outlet for my own thoughts and ideas on investing, but really had no idea where it would go. The launch of Base Hit Investing coincided with the beginnings of my investment management firm Saber Capital Management, LLC. I’ve since had the great fortune to meet new clients—who are now part of the “Saber Family” of partners who I value very much. I am lucky to have a great group of like-minded investors who have placed their trust in me, and I’m very grateful for that. I’ve also had the great fortune of talking with a few great investors—some who have been in the game for decades. They’ve given me great advice and I value their experience and counsel. I’ve also met some new up and coming investors, a number of which I now call my friends.
I love investing, but the experience of connecting with new friends, clients, and investors has been—as one wide moat/high return on capital credit card company likes to say—priceless.
So it’s been a very rewarding experience for me, and I am very thankful and grateful that I happen to be so lucky. It has made writing Base Hit Investing very enjoyable.
And that leads me to something I’d like to say to my readers: Thank you for reading! All of this wouldn’t have happened if you didn’t take the time to read my posts, make your comments, send me emails, feedback, criticism, ideas, etc… I appreciate you reading my content and I hope I can continue to provide you with value in the future.
In 2014, I’ll continue to share ideas that I have along with commentary on value investing theory as well as ideas on specific investments. The market is making the latter more difficult to find, but over time, a long-term oriented disciplined value investor who goes about their business in a patient, methodical manner should do quite well over time. That’s what Base Hit Investing is all about. I have significant goals for my business and for my long term investment results, and I look forward to continuing to share my ideas and thoughts as we go forward.
Thanks again, Happy New Year, and have a great weekend.
P.S. I wrote a post earlier this week with some Key Links for 2013 and mentioned it wasn’t a “Top Posts” post, but since I’m a glutton for just about any group of numbers or statistics, and since many readers are new, here is a list of the top 5 most read posts this year on BHI. Thanks again for reading and I look forward to your feedback in 2014!
