Howard Gold’s No-Nonsense Investing: Steve Bannon’s father made 3 basic investing mistakes that are so avoidable

His dad, Marty Bannon, who worked for AT&T for 50 years, had accumulated a healthy portfolio of company stock T, +0.40% that became the nest egg for his retirement and a legacy for his five children.
