What the "Smart Money" Says About Kratos
When I was working for the York Daily Record newspaper in York County, Penna., in the late 1980s, I met former President Richard M. Nixon when he visited a park there that was named for him. I got to shake his hand – quite a thrill, I’ll admit – and asked if the campaign team for Republican candidate George H.W. Bush had asked him for any advice. When former President Nixon answered in the affirmative, I knew I had a Page One story. The wire services picked up my piece, and my scoop went global.
The Richard Nixon who stood before me that day in York County – and who shook my hand kindly – in no way resembled the paranoid and emotionally brittle man portrayed in the book written by Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein. And while I’ve never been able to make sense of that disparity, it has never diluted my love of the book and the drama-filled movie.
No surprise to you, I’m sure, is the fact that my single favorite scene in “All the President’s Men” is the famous “parking garage” meeting where Woodward (played by actor Robert Redford) squared off against confidential source “Deep Throat” (Hal Holbrook). Woodward wanted Deep Throat to detail the depth and breadth of the Nixon administration scandal the newspaper had uncovered.
Deep Throat’s response: “Follow the money.”
As I’ve said here before, that’s great advice – for hungry young journalists and for investors looking for a big score.
And today we’re going to “follow the money” to a very big profit opportunity…
