This has been a big week for Fat Pitch Financials. I was interviewed by Dennis Olson of WallStRadio. If you listen to today’s podcast of the interview, you will here me discuss how I got started in investing, launched Fat Pitch Financials, and I even explain what Value Investing News is and how it differs from Fat Pitch Financials. If you make it to the end of the podcast, I even reveal my favorite blogs.
Fat Pitch Financials was also mentioned in BusinessWeek earlier this week for my Ultimate 2007 Berkshire Hathaway Annual Meeting Guide. I want to welcome all the new visitors that came from BusinessWeek yesterday and today. I hope you take some time to explore my archives to get a better understanding of what Fat Pitch Financials is all about and then consider subscribing to my feed.
Finally, I want to let you know about Stock GumShoe. Stock Gumshoe uncovers the actual stocks behind the stock tip teasers touted by newsletters and advisers that end up in your mailbox. I recently challenged him to figure out the two tender offers I hinted about in my most recent Special Situations Real Money Port update. In less than a day, the Stock Gumshoe passed my test and figured out that I was talking about Premiere Global Services, Inc. (PGI) and Tribune Co. (TRB). The Stock Gumshoe’s sleuthing skills impressed me. I didn’t think he would figure out PGI, which by the way I sold last week for the tender price of $12.65. I’m going to be a bit more careful about the hints I leave in the future. Of course, you can always subscribe to Fat Pitch Financials Contributor’s Corner to find out the latest special situation opportunities I’m researching and investing in.
Full Disclosure: I currently own shares of Tribune (TRB) and McGraw-Hill, the parent company of BusinessWeek. I no longer own PGI.
