Private Briefing

Private Briefing Discover exciting wealth-building opportunities you just can't find anywhere else - & get them before the whole world finds out. William (Bill) Patalon III is the Executive Editor and Senior Research Analyst for Money Morning.

Before he moved into the investment-research business in December 2005, Bill spent 22 years as a journalist, most of it covering financial news as a reporter, columnist, and editor that included stints with Gannett Co. Inc., and The Baltimore Sun. Bill has covered finance and investing, economics, manufacturing, the defense sector, biotechnology, and telecommunications. The companies he's covered include Eastman Kodak, Xerox, Harley-Davidson, Caterpillar, Westinghouse Electric, Verizon, MedImmune, and Black & Decker. His most-memorable interviews include: former President Richard M. Nixon, General Electric CEO John F. "Jack" Welch, Forbes magazine publisher and former Presidential candidate Steve Forbes, and business-turnaround specialist and helicopter-industry pioneer Stanley Hiller Jr. Today Bill is the creator and editor of Private Briefing. With his latest project, he takes you "behind the scenes" of his established investment news website for a closer look at the action. Members get all the expert analysis and exclusive scoops he can't publish... and some of the most valuable picks that turn up in Bill's closed-door sessions with editors and experts.

OK Gang, Phil had to throw together a video for this week at the last minute because the one he was working on got sidetracked with a delay. It's a compilation of an engine run, taxing, and my first flight in the Gee Bee Z.

It's actually a bit of a flashback down memory lane as you can see that my hair has gotten slightly grayer, and there are actually six people in it that no longer work for me! Tick, Tick, Tick!

Hope you enjoy it!

Bill...what are your thoughts on LK after today's massacre?
I read your article on LK yesterday and was shocked when I saw what happened to the stock price today. What do you think about what is happening with the COO right now?

HEY BILL - HELP I've been a long time subscriber to Private Briefing I am NOT well versed in Facebook nor do I care to be but you have a BULLET point here that reads "Actions to Take". Please add that to the web version of Private Briefing ASAP The site can be confusion at times and when it is listed as ACTIONS TO TAKE; like other newsletters in the Money Map Family; there is little margin of guess work. THANK YOU!!
Hey Bill, Awhile back you gave us a list of several reasons we should buy Alibaba. Then you told us you didn't care how far down it went and you'd hold onto for the long term. You also tell us to employ a 25% trailing stop on all your recommendations. Isn't this contradictory?
I just read the Labor Day Story about your father and was very moved. I was in deep grief for my father in my 20's and beyond for a different reason. He was physically there but emotionally distant...for he clearly had arrested development and had never truly grown up. It made it very difficult to make sense of the world. In fact, I might very well make a copy of the story. Thank you so much.
