I AM A NUMBER DUMMY!!
A term I use for the general public MIDDLE CLASS. We are the financially uneducated, unexposed to the stock market and financial investments. Most of us don't even know what the fiscal cliff is. One woman thought it was 70 ft. tall! WOW!
I for one, think we should start teaching our kids financial responsibilities in schools, at an early age. How about a REAL education for once.
Why we need classes like home eck is beyond me. Cooking & sewing?? Read the box & microwave it! I for one support a small tax on investment income to support financial education in public schools. Could help save America.
I'm coming to the game late, so I'm quite aggressive towards growth.
My thoughts on the fiscal cliff?? Shove ur scare tactics where the sun don't shine!!
As for investing, I shoot from the hip. I go with my gut. Common sense goes along way. I don't buy hype. EPS what? What ticker is that?

I am a student of the market, and have been blessed to make a living doing my hobby - researching and investing in stocks. I am a patient, long-term investor who likes to capitalize on misperceptions, short-term dislocations, and an occasional risky stock too unsavory for polite company, but with sufficient upside to warrant taking the risk.
Private Investor. 30 years in the debt capital markets. Bias towards out of favor stocks and bonds. Sector focused investor. Time horizons have shortened for me in this environment. Each day in this market per Fed, algo trading, US budget deficits, and manipulation in energy and gold markets... approaching each day in this current climate ready for battle!
