Announcement: Modern Graham Round Table Discussion

The value investing site Modern Graham will be hosting a round table discussion on Wednesday, October 18th. I will be one of the participants.

Below, I’m reprinting Modern Graham’s description of the round table discussion. You can either send your questions to me or send them directly to Modern Graham.

At this point, I have no idea what the discussion will be like. It’s really up to you.

How this works:

Readers may submit questions via comments left on this post or the contributor’s blogs, or by email to Jon and I will compile the questions and moderate the discussion. Please submit as many questions as you can think of. This discussion can only be as interesting as the questions are.

The actual discussion will be held in this thread of our forum. The thread will be open to the public to read, but only the participants will be allowed to post.

We are excited to have the following people contribute to the discussion:

Rick – Value Discipline

Rick has been a portfolio manager of institutional portfolios for over 25 years. He is currently working with individuals rather than institutions and finds this much more satisfying and rewarding. His greatest joy outside of his family is training young people to become better research analysts.
