The twilight zone

One link leads to another. A New York Times article “An Outspoken Fund Manager with Contrarian View” and a book reference. As the article reads: “The inspiration for his investment approach comes from an unlikely source: “The Gap in the Curtain,” a 1932 novel by John Buchan that is borderline science fiction. The plot centers on five people who are chosen by a scientist to take part in an experiment that will let them glimpse one year into the future. Two see their own obituaries in one year’s time. Mr. Hendry calls the novel 'the best investment book ever written' because it taught him to envision the future without neglecting what happened leading up to it, a mistake many investors make, he said."

So guess what I’m doing, at least until the thunder storm zaps the power here?
