Ask Colin

Do you do any research in the Philip Fisher style "Scuttlebutt"?

This refers to Philip's book Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits.I talk to the company or to other insiders only occasionally. This is partly a question of time and partly a question of my investment plan, which is strongly based on technical analysis and only on fundamental analysis in basic terms. However, I sometimes find that I meet an insider socially and will pick up what I can from them.
