born 1968, followng the stock market since 1992; economics graduate, I became interested in fundamental analysis first and attended a financial analyst master course with AIAF, (italian association of financial analysts) and I passed exams credited by the European Federation of Financial analyst; afterwards I dedicated myself to enhance my technical analysis skills and to study B.Graham and other business valutation models; After working many years on several technical analysis tecniques i decided to adopt a less stressfull approach. My current advised investment approach has three pillars§; ValueAveraging, Dollar Cost Averaging and Automatic investment plan; I use Value Averaging on indexes (ETF) considering the investment macro aspect and possibily considering the long term trend; while for stocks I combine fundamental analysis ( valuation and specific competitive advantage) with automatic investment plan. Core Holdings are on large value sometimes growth stock with strong leadership and competitive advantage bought at attractive prices and possibly with a growing prospect of incresing dividend yield. The third pillar is made up of deemed profitable special situations candidate.
