How Trading Stock Market Stocks Made Nicholas Darvas Millions
It was November 1952. I was playing in Manhattan’s "Latin Quarter" in New York when my agent telephoned. He had received an offer for my dancing partner, Julia, to appear in a Toronto nightclub and me. This was owned by twin brothers, Al and Harry Smith, who made me a very unusual proposition. They offered to pay me in stock market stocks instead of money. I have had some strange experiences in show business, but not in stock market stocks. I made further inquiries and found they were prepared to give me 6,000 stock market stocks in a company called BRILUND. This was a Canadian mining firm in which they were interested. The stock market stocks at that time was quoted at 50 cents a share.
