The Aleph Blog » Blog Archive » Apologies


To my readers: I have not been feeling well over the last week.  Ordinarily, I feel quite healthy, and I am grateful to God for the general health I have had over the last 10 years.  But this sickness has made it difficult for me to concentrate, headaches, etc.  Haven’t had headaches in a long time — 5-10 years or so, can’t remember the last time.

So, hopefully I will be writing more soon.  During the downtime I have read a lot, and spent time monitoring and thinking about my business.  But I feel utterly unproductive, tired, and subdued.

Just letting you all know why I have been so quiet.  I have a lot of good stuff to trot out, but getting the focus is difficult when your head is pounding.

One Response to Apologies

  1. David — Like all of your other readers I appreciate the information you share. We all hope you are feeling better soon.

    Providing content while maintaining excellence is a demanding task. Few are willing even to try, and most of those quit after a short time.

    Best wishes –



David Merkel is an investment professional, and like every investment professional, he makes mistakes. David encourages you to do your own independent "due diligence" on any idea that he talks about, because he could be wrong. Nothing written here, at RealMoney, Wall Street All-Stars, or anywhere else David may write is an invitation to buy or sell any particular security; at most, David is handing out educated guesses as to what the markets may do. David is fond of saying, "The markets always find a new way to make a fool out of you," and so he encourages caution in investing. Risk control wins the game in the long run, not bold moves. Even the best strategies of the past fail, sometimes spectacularly, when you least expect it. David is not immune to that, so please understand that any past success of his will be probably be followed by failures.

Also, though David runs Aleph Investments, LLC, this blog is not a part of that business. This blog exists to educate investors, and give something back. It is not intended as advertisement for Aleph Investments; David is not soliciting business through it. When David, or a client of David's has an interest in a security mentioned, full disclosure will be given, as has been past practice for all that David does on the web. Disclosure is the breakfast of champions.

Additionally, David may occasionally write about accounting, actuarial, insurance, and tax topics, but nothing written here, at RealMoney, or anywhere else is meant to be formal "advice" in those areas. Consult a reputable professional in those areas to get personal, tailored advice that meets the specialized needs that David can have no knowledge of.
