I’ve had this postcard sitting around for many years. The description: “Wall Street, New York City, 1988.”
It doesn’t look like that any more. I recall being on the floor when an important piece of corporate news broke and the post where the stock was traded was like a human magnet. Those days are gone.
But we are no less frenzied. Of course, the machines are now going faster than we ever could — but we rush around trying to keep up with the cascading waves of information that bombard us.
For me, it’s time to take a small step back to work on some new ideas. Therefore, like its sister blog, research puzzle pix, this one will go on hiatus for now.
In the meantime, postings will continue on the flagship site, the research puzzle, and The Prudent Fiduciary Digest newsletters (designed for institutional asset owners but available to all) will be published every few weeks (and don’t forget Letters to a Young Analyst). If you’d like updates on my new work-in-progress project, sign up here.
The postcard above is symbolic, in that I have described this site as “a scrapbook.” I appreciate you paging through it.
