The Desert Island Investor

Listen to the experiences and strategies of private investor, Mark Atkinson. Mark's long-term investments enabled him to become financially independent and to retire at the comparatively early age of 53. The stocks he reviews are from his actual portfolio, not a 'virtual' one, so these are genuine win-some, lose-some stories. We hope that you'll also enjoy regular feature 'Question in a Bottle' where Mark answers listeners' questions about investing.
