About Richard Crow After starting life as a milkman and ending up paralysed after a motorbike accident @ 19 years old, Richard started investing in 1982. Mainly punting penny shares and buying unit trusts all went quite well until the 1987 Black Monday Crash where he lost a third of his investments. Undeterred he returned to investing several years later and had good success in the tech boom, selling out early before most of the tech rout. Thereafter, he started investing and trading, mainly in small caps finding many multi-baggers and much greater success. He now runs a very restricted private chatroom of some 260 or so members where members discus the stock news of the day and stock merits and opinions, together with chat and banter re life, gardening, photography and more. He also has a cracking sense of humour and posts numerous great jokes and one-liners, (he wrote that bit).
