On a calendar note of a personal sort, today marks my last day at TheStreet.com. After four wonderful years here and 15 years as a business journalist, it's time for a new challenge. Next week, I'll be joining a New York-based investment firm as a biotech analyst (I'll remain on the West Coast.) I've been writing about biotech investing for a long time, so now's my chance to see if I can actually invest in biotech -- and make money doing it. I'm excited to start the new gig, but I leave TheStreet.com with some reluctance, because this has been (and continues to be) a great place to work and learn. I look back over the past four years and I marvel at how much I've learned about the way Wall Street really works. My investment education only accelerated when I was fortunate to join the staff of RealMoney two years ago. Thanks to Jim Cramer, Dave Morrow, the entire cast of RealMoney contributors and all the writers and editors at TheStreet. It's been a great ride. Finally, thanks to all my readers! Your constant feedback -- both naughty and nice -- kept me constantly energized and on my toes. I met some amazingly smart and friendly people through this Web site, readers who became trusted sources and helped me appear smarter than I am. I'm thankful and better for it, and will miss that part of the job more than anything. Next week, I stop watching and start doing. I can't wait to get started. Thanks again, and continued success to all.
