Updates

I have quit providing links to updates published at SeekingAlpha.

I would suggest bookmarking this page:  South Gent's Instablogs | Seeking Alpha

As noted in a recent blog, I will be transitioning to publishing one blog per quarter:

Future Blogs Will Only Be On A Quarterly Basis - South Gent | Seeking Alpha

I will be leaving substantive comments to my most recent SA Instablog, including some references to portfolio changes.

The most recent Instablog is this one:   South Gent's Comment Blog # 7: REITs, Preferred Stocks And Bonds, Regional Banks, Healthcare & Biotechs, CEFs, Currencies And International Trading - South Gent | Seeking Alpha

Update for Healthcare Basket Strategy as of 7-29-16-Growing Lottery Ticket Component

The easiest way to track what I am doing or saying is to become a follower at SeekingAlpha and to check the "track new comments" box at the end of each Instablog. 

I was somewhat taken back when I looked at the rankings for SA Instablog authors and noted several authors who are using the Instablog format to sell subscriptions.  Top Instablogs | Seeking Alpha (e.g. Superinvestor Bulletin's Instablogs | Seeking Alpha).  I receive zilch and I am not trying to sell myself or anything else.  

Several of these Instablog advertisements are scattered throughout the SA Instablog universe and provide no useful or meaningful information IMO. They are exactly what they appear to be: advertisements for a subscription service. 

Then there are those that could fill a Twitter message with a few more words. No one has ever accused me of such brevity.  Nothing informative about an investment can be put in a 140 word narrative but those Twitter Want-To-Be Instablogs are not likely to lose anyone's short, and growing shorter, attention span.  You Now Have a Shorter Attention Span Than a Goldfish | TIME And one of our presidential contenders will need to struggle mightily to achieve the attentions span of a goldfish.
