February 17, 2011 – Comments (18)

As you can see from my new username, my time as a Professional Fool has come to an end -- at least for now. I published my last article on Monday.

So what am I doing now? I've accepted a consultant role with an investment firm down in Texas. I'll be hunting for value wherever it might hide, on both the long and short side, as I've done here on Motley Fool CAPS for the past 4+ years. To avoid any potential conflicts, I'm going into semi-retirement here, and won't be making any new picks.

I've enjoyed both sharing long ideas and exposing management fudges and outright scams with you. I'll mostly be lurking from here on out, but I may post the occasional thought as well. Until then..

Cheers and Fool on,

Toby

Congratulations!  Enjoy not paying state income tax and personal property tax on your vehicle.   I should add while it lasts.

Just noticed this, another Favorite Fool and a great example the rest of us fades away into the sunset.  I understand the conflict issue, but who else am I going to crib from so often? :(

I do hope you'll share a thought from time to time.  Best wishes!!!

Sorry to see you go. I am left without energy now ...

I enjoyed many of your articles. I acted on a few of them, with good consequences. I regret I didn't discover you earlier. Thank you.
