All opinions expressed are those of the author at the time of writing and do not necessarily reflect the views of sponsors, other writers, linked businesses or sites, or that same author at a different time. CTSI author(s) reserve the right to change their opinions, to hold schizophrenically incompatible views, and to believe in Santa Claus if they really want to.

CTSI offers information for educational purposes only. Neither an individual author nor CTSI shall have liability or responsibility to any citizen, person, or entity with respect to any loss or damage caused, or alleged to be caused, directly or indirectly by the information contained on CTSI properties.

Do not take anything CTSI writes as medical, legal, investment, financial, or tax advice. Though CTSI may address such topics or give recommendations, they are based on CTSI experiences and should not take the place of advice from a qualified or certified expert in that field. For medical, financial, and legal matters, please consult a qualified professional before implementing any recommendations from CTSI.

CTSI author(s) may hold shares of Apple (AAPL), other individual stocks, and/or mutual funds that may hold companies about which CTSI writes or whose products they recommend.
