I have to rephrase that, Bharti has had his successes, Desert SUN, Consolidated Iron Ore, etc. However , they have had dozens of ventures where those companies have gone nowhere but down, and Bharti (Forbes and Manhattan) received excessive compensation. It could be that he has too much on his plate and wants to be paid big no matter how they do their job.
I got my first helping of Bharti investing into Beartooth Platinum. THEY went nowhere but down, eventually getting a few shares of KRIA in a merger of sorts.
Kria went on to merge with Trevali , those same Beartooth shares now worth a fraction of what they were.
