Re: Formerly known as Chrysler

Re: More entanglements

Thanks Hohum.

These folks I believe have an interesting business plan and intend to maintain REIT status. (Not that I'm certain this is possible.)

Re: Mutual Funds

The more diversified you are the less you know what the heck you own. Not knowing what you really own seems riskier than owning one or two good solid companies.
