My friend Miguel is arranging a conference in Chicago for value investors. I highly recommend that anyone who lives in the Chicago area or can travel goes to the event. There are going to be two great speakers there. Plus Miguel is one of the nicest people you meet and also is a great contact to have. In short you will get some great valuable advice and it will be an excellent event for networking.

I get no compensation for this post, I am posting this because I think readers will benefit and as a favor for my friend Miguel.
