The story below on K12 is the last one for The Financial Investigator.com.
Thank you profoundly for reading, your support and courtesy.
There is a reason for folding now: The type of reporting work done here is difficult and time-consuming. Started as a hobby and becoming something (much) more, FI.com frankly lacks the platform, reach and capital of other investigative organizations, nor do I have the raw talent of, for example, John Hempton or Carson Block’s Muddy Waters.
As you all know, the world of investigative reporting, or more accurately, the act of waving red flags at investors, has changed. FI.com wasn’t going to be able to change with it. I don’t short stocks, don’t cut corners and don’t, well, do much of anything but write and report.
Within a few months, I plan to have launched The Southern Investigative Research Foundation, a nonprofit focused exclusively on investigation’s into companies and other attention worthy sorts within the capital markets.
Size and reach matter in this game. SIRF will have the distribution, funding and, should things go according to plan, staff to tell some mighty interesting stories. I don’t feel you will be disappointed.
