Today, I put in a buy order for the Ben Graham: Net-Net Newsletters 14th position. What makes this stock so different from past picks? In the past, the Ben Graham: Net-Net Newsletter has never bought a stock that doesnt file with the SEC. This month if we get our order filled the model portfolio will finally own a net-net that doesnt file with the SEC. Some net-nets dont file with the SEC. But a lot of net-nets do.
