TELL ME AND I FORGET, TEACH ME AND I REMEMBER, INVOLVE ME AND I LEARN Benjamin Franklin
Ben Halliburton has been in the investment business since 1986 and recently sold his interest in his investment management company. While he is continuing to manage his and his family’s money, he has opted not to offer his services to the public at this time. Nonetheless, he does believe that the investing public could benefit from sound investment education and decided to open BuildingBenjamins.com as a way of providing investors with potential stock investment ideas as an educational endeavor.
Given that Mr. Halliburton is still investing on a daily basis, sharing his investment ideas and thoughts with the public instills discipline and provides a platform for possible insights from the public. In addition, we believe the broad investment public could see early trends in products and services and may be able to bring them to our attention earlier in the life cycle. This could allow for earlier entry in potential good growth ideas. When companies are identified before they are widely popular or known by Wall Street, valuations are generally lower making for a more attractive long-term investment. Mr. Halliburton believes the Best Invest area should make him a better investor.
