Fred Hager

I have a faded and soiled printout of Fred Hager's projections of the share price of Rambus Inc. that is nearly as handled as a pop star. Unfortunately for long term investors, only one-half of the numbers panned out - worldwide production. The all-important payments to Rambus by the producers are seriously lagging.

It is hard to believe that before the Rambus Inc. AT trial commences in the winter/spring of 2009 that Fred Hager will have been gone for over two years. notes:

In December 2006, Fred passed away unexpectedly. He was 82 years old. Fred died of a heart attack enjoying one of his favorite pastimes. Fred was an avid skier since his earliest days. On Fred's final day he was surrounded by family and grandchildren in Switzerland as they headed to the ski slopes.

Fred's vitality is captured in a photo of him taken on the day before he died He died as he lived, with optimistic courage and the desire to live life to its fullest. Not only did Fred live the American dream but he continued to share that dream and the fruits of his investing success with those that mattered the most until his very last day.
