Though this blog occasionally discusses topical issues in finance and investing, and may even mention individual securities, it is written for entertainment purposes only. This is neither an advertisement nor a means of soliciting business. The author does not want your money. Seriously.

Nothing written on this blog is meant as financial advice, or a recommendation to buy, sell or hold any particular asset or security. In fact, the information on this blog is entirely insufficient for determining whether to buy, sell or hold any asset or security.

More broadly, making any financial or life decision based on something some random dude wrote on the internet is a terrible idea. Literally never do it. If you ignore this warning you straight-up deserve to lose every cent you “invest” this way and I will not shed so much as a single tear for you or the shattered remnants of your net worth.

Readers should consult with a financial advisor before making any investment decision. Unlike a random dude on the internet, an advisor can take your unique circumstances into account when providing financial advice. And no, the author of this blog is not interested in being your financial advisor. So don’t ask.

At this time no one makes any money off this blog except WordPress, which is probably price gouging the author for basic web hosting services. Should that change, this disclosure will be updated accordingly. In the meantime, make your baseline assumption that the author has a beneficial ownership interest in anything so much as tangentially alluded to on this blog, and that each and every view expressed here is riddled with conflicts of interest.

All views and opinions expressed here are the author’s own, and are not representative of the views of any current, past or future employer.
