Q&A with Jason Kelly

Jason Kelly
It is my pleasure to present this Q&A. We've had the privilege of learning from a number of wonderful people over the past few years and we will start our series in 2010 with Jason Kelly.

Known for his Neatest Little Guide To Stock Market Investing and for his investment newsletter, Jason offers a different approach than we've seen from others in this Q&A series. In addition to long-term value-focused investing, Jason also uses what he calls "permanent portfolio" strategies that you'll find of great interest. We'll talk about these approaches, his background and perspectives and more importantly, what he thinks all of us need to do in 2010 to outperform the market.
