100,000 Jobs Mission

April 30, 2013

Drama. We talk about these companies all the time, and our talk is dry, about investment risk and the price of risk. And we’re going to keep on talking about them – the buck stops here – but we’re moved by these statements from Mr. John T. Chambers, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Cisco Systems Incorporated, and wanted to share them with you because risk is not just about making money in the stock market:

Cisco is committed to connecting, training, and hiring U.S. military veterans. Cisco’s Veterans Program focuses on hiring military veterans, easing their transition to civilian life, and connecting them with educational and career opportunities in the technology field. By 2016, more than 1 million U.S. military personnel are expected to transition to civilian life, including approximately 300,000 by August 2013. Cisco supports U.S. veterans through education and employment opportunities and is a founding member of the 100,000 Jobs Mission, a coalition of more than 80 corporations committed to collectively hiring 100,000 U.S. veterans by 2020.

“Cisco’s true value is not in what we make, but in what we make possible.” – Mr. John T. Chambers, Cisco Systems Incorporated.

Investing in the bond and stock markets has become a highly regulated and litigious industry but despite that, there remains only one effective rule and that is caveat emptor or “buyer beware”. Nothing that we say should be construed by any person as advice or a recommendation to buy, sell, hold or avoid the common stock or bonds of any public company at any time for any purpose. That is the law and we fully support and respect that law and regulation in every jurisdiction without exception and without qualification to the best of our knowledge and ability. We can only tell you what we do and why we do it or have done it and we know nothing at all about the future or the future of stock prices of any company nor why they are what they are, now.
