<THE HARRY JONES PORTFOLIO>
By Harry Jones
(January 12, 1999) -- I went into town yesterday to buy some supplies. While waiting in the checkout line, I got to chatting with the guy behind me. I told him I was just starting out investing and didn't know a lot about the market and such.
He starts telling me about this company I should look into. I forget the name. Now I know he was being friendly and all, but it sounded too good to be true. I mean, if it was so good, why was he telling me? I think I'll stick with slow and steady for now.
Corn doesn't grow in a day.
