As most of you are aware, Sy was stricken by a sudden illness at the beginning of the month. He was in Intensive Care for over three weeks and for that entire time, the family was told that he would be able to make a full recovery. However, it is with heavy hearts that we must announce that Sy has passed away. Unfortunately, complications arose and his condition regressed rapidly in his final 48 hours and the doctors were not able to save him.
Sy started giving investment advice to the public some 27 years ago. It was his life and his passion. Not a day went by that he wasn’t thinking about how he could help others increase profits or reduce risk. He was a private man who had always declined the numerous requests for television and radio interviews. His voice was his written word. He simply loved writing. He loved researching ideas and formulating them into insightful commentary that would both educate and open one’s mind to seeing things in different ways. He was contrarian by nature. He always felt that if the crowd was going in one direction, he should look in a different direction to see what they were missing. This philosophy has served him well over the years and is one of the reasons technical analysis appealed to him. Quite often the charts would show when too many people were thinking one way and the markets were due for a reversal.
Sy was a devoted family man. He was always there to help and put his family’s needs before his own. He could always be found at his children’s and grandchildren’s sporting events, dance recitals and special functions. Most of his family has worked with him at one point or another. It was always amazing to see his work ethic and desire to succeed, but never at the expense of others. His honesty and integrity were evident to all who knew him.
Sy’s passing was very sudden and unexpected and as a result we are busy formulating a plan to determine the best course of action going forward. We will do our best to provide information and answers via email if you have questions, but honestly, with Sy’s remarkably good health, this is not something for which we had planned.
We want to thank you for the many thoughts and prayers we have received during Sy’s illness, from both long term and more recent subscribers. It shows that you thought of him as more than just a newsletter writer. You got to know him through his writing and he got to know many of you over the years. It was that kind of sentiment that kept him going, trying his hardest to provide the best advice he could. Thank you again for your support through this difficult time.
