Off Line For Now

Dear friends and fellow alpha seekers.

For the time being, I will no longer be writing for Seeking Alpha due to perceived conflicts with my employer. Essentially, it is believed that my writing may (or may not) reflect the view of my employer and may be influenced by the information I receive while at work.

As a result, I have been asked to discontinue writing in order to eliminate any potential conflicts.

I have enjoyed writing for Seeking Alpha and have particularly enjoyed the interaction with those who have contributed to the discussion streams in order to enhance the value of the articles. I will be checking my inbox and frequenting the site (as it is a tremendous source of information).

I hope that I have added value and look forward to learning more from the articles and discussions.

Mike
