William Patalon III
I don’t think that I’m a boastful guy.
But there is one thing that I boast about.
I boast about all of you.
You see, I believe that my readers – the subscriber base of Private Briefing – is made up of some of the sharpest folks I’ve dealt with during my 33-year career as a writer, journalist, analyst, editor and newsletter guru.
I like hearing from all of you. And when I do, your eloquence, poignant questions and insightful comments always seem to bolster the “picture” I carry around in my mind of a smart, enlightened audience.
It’s a mental picture that spurs me to work harder – and to “write for the reader” in a way that simplifies complex concepts, and that hopefully adds a bit to your existing wisdom.
Today I want to share a couple of comments. And I also want to respond to a really good
question posed by a reader seeking more insight on one of the biggest growth areas we see – the “Internet of Everything” (IoE).

Best Stocks To Watch For 2018: Fortress Investment Group LLC(FIG)
- [By Dan Caplinger]
The stock market continued to climb sharply on Wednesday, sending major market benchmarks to record highs yet again and propelling the Dow Jones Industrials up more than 100 points. Economic data continued to support the notion that the U.S. economy remains strong, and rising inflation levels led many to conclude that the Federal Reserve is more likely than ever to follow through on its promise to keep lifting short-term interest rates in 2017. Rising bond yields reflected investors’ reluctance to hold onto fixed-income investments in anticipation of higher rates, prompting some to shift assets into the stock market. Several companies also reported, andFortress Investment Group (NYSE:FIG), Editas Medicine (NASDAQ:EDIT), and Hertz Global Holdings (NYSE:HTZ) were among the top performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so well.
