Nothing Doing

by Harry Jones

(March 19, 1999) -- I guess this is already a fifth column, written on a fifth piece of notepad paper. A fifth column and the week is played out. Maybe I didn't say much about investing this week, or anything at all, but what is there to say in one week? Not much at all. Even a month or two or eight doesn't offer enough news to change an investment strategy, usually.

Next week we'll write new columns on a daily basis. I do like that better in some ways. It's nearly 9:00 a.m. already on Saturday morning and I'm still here on this table writing columns. Well, now I'm done and headed out the door.

[Ed. note: this was written March 13, 1999.]
