  1. Thanx for the mention :)

  2. Thanks Matt! Loved your post about the “Six Long Term Dividend Stocks at Attractive Prices”

  3. Thanks for the mention, Matt!

  4. Thanks for the link Matt!

    I enjoyed reading Buffett’s letter. Very interesting.

  5. Great list of links Matt!

    I have to get caught up after being away this weekend in Toronto.


  6. Good links and thanks for mentioning defensiven.

    Ive noticed that the navigation doesnt work very well in translator mode. So if im lucky enough to get mentioned again I would appreciate if u linked directly to the english post!

  7. Defensiven,

    Sure, I can link to your English articles. The reason I have not been doing that is that, the URL of the English posts is translate.google.com/…..etc rather than a link to your site defensiven. For the purposes of providing you with a recognized link for SEO purposes, I wanted to link directly to your site.

    But if you think it’s better to link directly to the English translations, I’ll do that from now on.

  8. good point but Im willing to sacrifice some data for increased readability. Thanks
