Geraldine Weiss Dead at 96

Geraldine Weiss, who, after being told by a succession of stockbrokers that she was best qualified for the secretarial pool, devised an unconventional moneymaking strategy that she used in becoming the first woman to launch a successful investment newsletter, died on Monday at her home in the La Jolla area of San Diego.

She was 96.

Her death was announced by her son Martin.

“Gerry’s approach was really unique,” Mr. Wright said, a combination of the two traditional ways to analyze securities: fundamental and technical. “Gerry was the first to meld the two,” he added.

Ms. Weiss’s dedication to her newsletter led to late hours and overnights at the office, but she also found time to play competitive bridge. She played into her 80s and 90s, her son Mark said, in an internet circle that included Warren Buffett and Bill Gates.

Ms. Weiss retired in 2002, turning her business over to Mr. Wright for what Mark Weiss said was a six-figure sum. But she continued to closely monitor the advisory’s output. “The market was her passion,” he said.

Richard Weiss died in 1994. Ms. Weiss’s sons Gabriel and Gregory also died before her. In addition to her son Martin, she is survived by her second husband, Michael Levine, whom she married in 2007; a daughter, Katherine Taylor; seven grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.
