The financial newsletter business lost one of its greats on November 21st.
Richard Russell, who founded the Dow Theory Letters in 1958 passed away amongst family in his home.
Dow Theory Letters was the longest investment letter in the industry continuously written by the same person.
For those who didn’t know or know of Richard, you really missed out. He was one of my favorite analysts, writers and thinkers.
The Dow Theory Letters started out in the 1950s with an ad in the Wall Street Journal that received a big response. After that, every ten days to three weeks he would mail out a newsletter. Yes, mail! In today’s age it is hard to imagine the difficulty of writing that regularly to subscribers around the world.
In 1991, Dow Theory Letters began publishing online, which allowed Richard to write daily. This he did until about a week before his passing.
