Hi, everyone! The Defensive Investor Course has concluded as of September 2012, and the Enterprising Investor Course is now running. If you'd like to subscribe to the Enterprising Course, which includes the new Enterprising Portfolio, you can easily do so from the homepage. You'll need to cancel your Defensive Membership in order to transition (this is due to the payment processing company - they can't change the amount we bill per month after the fact, so you need to sign up under the Enterprising plan) over to the new course. The Enterprising Plan includes everything in the Defensive Plan, in addition to all of the material in the Enterprising Investor Course. We hope to see you there!
