Amateur Investor / All Investments for Own Account I have about 15 years experience investing and trading my own account. On the whole, I have lost money. I have studied fundamental analysis, technical analysis, quantitative investing, etc. My biggest strengths are analyzing financial statements and evaluating major trends. My biggest weaknesses are discipline, cutting my losing positions, and relying on other's opinions instead of doing my own due diligence. For my educational background: I have an undergraduate degree in finance and accounting, a JD, and a LLM in taxation.
Investor, Entrepreneur, Financial Historian, Austrian School Economist, Investment Analyst, and Contrarian. Co-founded the investor education, financial education and consulting company, Wall St for Main St, LLC in 2009. I've taught beginners how to invest and also consulted for high net worth individuals worth 6-8 figures helping teach them how markets are changing. Became interested in the stock market and investing after the 2008 crash. Woke up then started taking back control of my financial freedom. I've read over 100 books on investing, entrepreneurship, etc and also increased my financial education through thousands of articles, thousands of podcasts and over 100 documentaries. Over 10,000 hours of market research. I more than tripled my investing capital while I learned how to invest and I've made 10 times my money on some stocks in my young career. Double major in history and political science from Virginia Tech. Law school and MBA program drop out. Learned investing after college without having to unlearn Keynesian Economics and other bad academic theories that don't work in the real world.
I've also interviewed and argued with hundreds of big name investors like Jim Rogers, Dr. Marc Faber, Rick Rule, Ross Beaty, Doug Casey, Vitaliy Katsenelson, David McAlvany, Todd Harrison, etc on Wall St for Main St podcasts.
I've worked in the past as an IAR/RIA (fancy name for a stock broker) at a very large retail firm and as a full time investment analyst at a well known paid newsletter company for retail investors for my day job.
