And thanks for sharing, evren. He's my hero too:
" insistent on not having an insurance policy"
While we're on the subject, I first heard about him in 2003. OSTK needed more capital and there was a secondary offering of OSTK shares. Market price was around $8 per share. Well below the recent $13 IPO. And I believe there were no big investors that were interested at that price, or he simply chose to pony-up of his own cash.
Out of consideration for his IPO investors, he put up his own money @ $13 per share and in the process overpayed by multiple millions dollars.
I'm honest. But this guy's out-of-my league.
