And here I thought you were Bill Washington for a second! I was going to remind him that public advice is a silly thing to do in our industry and he should know better. It's also why I don't post in this thread and just roll my eyes at half of it instead!
who is bill washington??
heh, there's nothing wrong with the tips/suggestions, i personally find it incredibly helpful to branch out in other areas, but obviously do your own due diligence and dont gamble what you can't lose. I've definitely been enlightened with ideas that i may not see that someone else brings to light so even if i disagree, i try not to ever poo poo any idea. (not easy to maintain though).
Bill was the head of Mining investment Banking at National Bank Financial (and before that the head of investment banking at a boutique called Wellington West). I used to work at NBF and he's well known in Toronto.
