Investment and Statistics

I decided to learn a bit more about statistics and portfolio management and I stumbled on Peter Ponzo's aka gummy stuff website:

gummy stuff ... about Investing (mostly)

"In 1993 I retired, after some thirty years of teaching math at the University of Waterloo. I was fifty-nine at the time and would have received a drastically reduced pension, so I transferred thirty years of pension contributions to a self-directed LIF. That meant I had to learn something about investing. I found most things fascinating ... but confusing. When I thought I finally understood the idea behind some financial concept I'd write a tutorial in the hope that others, equally confused, might find something of interest. The tutorials are not meant for professional investors or financial analysts or capital planners or ... whatever."

Don't be misslead by the graphic, the site is full of tutorials Investing-intro and excel spreadsheets Index of /Excel and Charts.

Although statistic is quite complicated I found Peter's explainations quite easy to catch, his teaching background helped simplify difficult concepts. The excel spreadsheets list is an incredible and must have database collection, to my knowledge is the best info you can get for a home made investment plan. I don't think gummy's stuff was ever mentioned on (formerly BMT), thought someone could be interested.

Off Topic a bit

Great site thank you very much. This guy must have a passion for teaching and found a new way of keeping at it. I am sure this will be a very valuable resource to a lot of people here on (formerly BMT).

Having spent a few years at University my self, and reading how old this guy is when he retired, I get the feeling that on average somebody with a teaching career at a University tends to have a longer life span than average in other careers. Maybe something to consider when choosing a career.
