Arthur Grayson: On Wall Street, there are different types of
investors, just as there are different types of investment firms to
cater to their needs.

Some seek aggressive capital appreciation, combined with short-term
emerging market gains.

Others prefer a value-driven model balanced by steady dividend growth.
[back to Grayson]
And each strategy, we suppose, has its place. But at Grayson
Moorhead, we take a somewhat different approach.

You see, in choosing stocks for investment, we at Grayson Moorhead
have never followed the conventional Wall Street wisdom -- all the
business about price to earnings ratios and dividend payout rates, or
return on common equity. To us, it's something intangible: a feeling
in the gut; a tingle at the back of the neck; a voice whispering in
the ear that says, "These are important companies doing important
things." We want our clients to be a part of it. Companies like:
[Company portfolios are shown]
Crocodile Dundee Smoked Dingo Sausage. Excelsior She-Male Escort
Services. The President Lyndon B. Johnson Commemorative Wristwatch
Company. Goliath Extra-Large Cellular Phones. Rosie Magazine.
Gloria Vanderbilt Jeans for Men. And Enron.
[Grayson sits by the fire]
Most of these companies are now bankrupt. Others have been exposed as
fronts for a variety of criminal enterprises. Every single one of
them has lost staggering amounts of money for our investors. But at
Grayson Moorhead, we have always felt -- and we like to think our
clients would agree – that when you lose your life savings because you
believed in something greater than yourself, you haven't really lost
it all. For when it comes to investing, there are more important
things than making money. If you don't understand that, maybe we're
not the company for you.

Announcer: Grayson Moorhead. Losing our clients' money with dignity
and pride since 1926.
