Thanks, retirementdough, for sharing the fruits of your research.

I never forgot that I committed to a deep dive on Ebix for Saul and this board. I'm sorry it has taken so long, but it is bubbling up closer to the top of my queue. I still own shares, so your reaction is a bit disheartening for me. I won't second-guess it until I've had a chance to study the situation myself. Yes, this is one of the downsides of having a very diversified portfolio. When you have ten companies, you can keep one finger on the pulse of each. For me, Ebix is on a low enough rung that it doesn't get one of my toes. The upside is that Ebix isn't killing me. My portfolio results are inferior to many here who publish them, but they are beating the market nicely (i.e., not "mutual-fund-like") and I sleep well. I'm sorry that my post devolved a little into portfolio management. I'll try to begin my Ebix study within the next week or two, perhaps sooner.

Fool on!
Thanks and best wishes,
