Sam Tabar is becoming a household name in the investing world. He has a unique approach that originates from his varied experiences that I am proud to say my diner was one of. Sam used to stop in to study on Sunday afternoons when he was still a law student. Tabar does not take any of his experiences for granted. He uses all of them to make wise decisions in the investment world. In other words, we still see him from time to time on the occasional Sunday and of course keep up with him through CNBC and all the rest of the news he pops up in.

Tabar and Commodities
Tabar knows that investing in commodities requires research. He advises that each investor explores the history of the commodity. Research allows you to make a reasonable prediction of what the commodity may perform like in the future. Problem products can be eliminated or avoided when proper research is conducted.
For example, Tabar instructed his clients to avoid the US Natural Gas Fund because it was a poorly managed fund. When there were significant losses because the UNG had fallen more than 75 percent, he advised his clients to stay away until they created more shares or resolved the issue in some other manner.
