I have been occasionally investing, as my personal time and money permit, via long positions over the course of 10 years. I don't work for a brokerage firm, and I'm not a professional trader. My interest has been predominantly within the biotechnology and energy sectors. I'm a CPA licensed in Maryland. I have Bachelor degrees in both Accounting and Finance.

I am a long time buy-and-hold investor from Cleveland, Ohio, with approximately 6 years investing experience.
I primarily target Value stocks, but on occasion am open to "growth at a reasonable price."
Ideally I prefer to invest in Mid-Cap stocks over large-cap or small-cap.
I believe the two best sectors to invest in during the next two decades will be Health Care for growth and Financials for value.
I tend to ignore the opinions of hedge-fund managers or so-called "experts"....rather, my investment philosophy values the opinion of simple minds that come from humble backgrounds.
I am always on a look-out for secular trends; I look for companies that benefit from aging baby boomers, rising interest rates, organic eating, and increased adoption of electronic payment systems.
I tend to pay more attention to a company's qualitative aspects rather than quantitative.
