One of the best aspects of working on a Net publication is getting to hear from readers. During five years at
The Wall Street Journal
I received about five letters from readers. This weekend I've received more than 200 emails from a single story.
I, along with the rest of the staff at
, listen to what readers tell us. On Friday, I
asked readers special guest columnist
. The response: overwhelming enthusiasm for more Berko. As many of you know, Berko is Cramer's partner and, as a few readers mentioned, the yin to Cramer's yang, or vice versa.
It's clear that you all enjoy reading the wisdom of money managers. Along with Cramer and Berkowitz, we have other investors writing for
Gary B. Smith
. We have people with massive investment experience, such as
offering their insights. And we have experts such as
on the economy and
on IPOs. It's a mixture of experience, expertise, intelligence and insight that you are not going to find anywhere else.
I encourage you to take a look at this all-star team of writers, and meantime we'll be out there hunting for more stars to fulfill your desire for top-notch information. If you've got suggestions, please don't hesitate to let me know at
This week, after Berkowitz' able work (and we're working on getting more of him!) we welcome
James J. Cramer
back from vacation. Knowing that he's tanned, rested and ready, we expect Cramer to come out firing from his trading turret Monday morning. Summer blahs? Not with Cramer back in action!
Finally, if there's any issue I can help you with or any question you have, please don't hesitate to email me. I'll make sure that your issues are addressed swiftly. Get ready for another good week on
