Blog Wrap Up for 2009

The 'Helicopter Economics Investing Guide' is meant to help educate people on how to make profitable investing choices in the current economic environment. We have coined this term to describe the current monetary and fiscal policies of the U.S. government, which involve unprecedented money printing. This is the official blog of the New York Investing meetup.

I would like to thank all the readers of this blog and the members of the New York Investing meetup for their support throughout 2009. It has been a great year for us. We have encouraged you to take positions in a number of investments that have returned well over 100%. Some of our best choices for 2009 were: DXO, HWD, FCX, TCK, AA, PWE, HTE, PDS, KOL, HUN, UYM, XME, NG, AGQ and DGP. Hopefully you have profited from them.

The New York Investing meetup had only a handful of members before I took over the organizer position in October 2006. At the end of 2009, we are approaching 2500. We feel we have offered the public the best deal in investing education anywhere and we appreciate the response that has turned us into the largest investing meetup in the world by far. We are not only the largest, but we are also the best and it was nice to hear that from Dutch Radio. In their coverage of the group, they stated that based on their research we were the only investing meetup that had consistently profitable investing ideas throughout the Credit Crisis.

Toward the end of the year, a number of websites started picking up one or more of my blog posts. Seeking Alpha has published 31 posts from me during the last five weeks. My editor there, Sarit Gelberg, has done an excellent job with the material. Project Shining City has also been picking up my economic posts thanks to its dynamic leader Jeff Bruzzo. Because of New York Investing meetup member Jack Kemp, material from this blog has been published in and Jack and I co-authored an original piece for American Thinker. Just a couple of days ago, the Eco Investing Guide published one of my blog posts for the first time. Material from one of my blogs about a month ago was used in a Newsmax story and just this morning, I was interviewed by ABC News because of material they saw on my blog. So the word is getting out.

Thanks once again for your loyal readership. Best wishes to everyone for a profitable investing year in 2010.
