I've been an "off and on" investor for more decades than I care to admit. I've tended to invest "long term," but now and then am tempted to become a bit more speculative. I also have missed out on "hunches," like the one I had about Netflix - as an enthusiastic, "pioneering" customer - almost a decade ago. My current hunch? If Dunkin' Donuts makes a big move to open franchises in Mexico, I'm buying the stock: my Mexican-American neighbors here where I live in Arizona just 20 minutes from the border "son loco todo sobre donas." Such a hunch suggests that I follow the market and dip in now and then mostly as a form of entertainment. Becoming richer has little appeal to me. In fact, I feel blessed to give financial support to promising young students in my neighboring state of Sonora, Mexico at its excellent tech schools and world-class universities. They sign a contract agreeing that they will work in Mexico for a minimum of 5 years after completing their studies. So far, 4 students have not only graduated but have also found fine, professional employment in Sonora's robust, growing economy and thus have no need to seek work elsewhere. Especially, north of the border!
