Not sure how Alan can take Long Service Leave at such a critical time for
I feel we've been badly let-down by Eureka at this time, with no advice as
to what we should be doing to protect our portfolios.
How about returning our funds - we're not getting what was promised.
Ian & Margaret
At Eureka we are very confident of our investing style: It has won out during every test of the market, including the very difficult period of 2008-2009.
Separately, Alan has written for Eureka Report since the day we began publishing in 2005 and everyone in our organisation is entitled to long service leave after ten years...even Alan. He will be back at his desk on March 15. Meanwhile, Robert Gottliebsen, one of the most trusted financial commentators and a stalwart of Eureka for more than a decade, is writing our Saturday email in the interim. I hope this eases some of your concerns.

I read the Nevsky letter (see Robert Gottliebsen's write up on Nevsky Capital on Saturday January 16 email) in full and what a great (but sobering) summary of the forces at work in world economies and markets. In my little world I intend to remain a focussed value investor following great companies with good prospects.
Keep up the good work
