Investing on my own since 2007. Investing successfully is the most challenging activity I have ever undertaken. Books that inspired me to fire my investment adviser: The Big Investment Lie, Michael Edesess; and What Wall Street Doesn't Want You To Know, Larry E. Swedroe. The Snowball: Warren Buffet and the Business of Life, Alice Schroeder: made me realize that as smart and persistent as Buffet is, he is not the genius some make him out to be. He is a flawed man, he is human, he received a lot of help and benefited from starting out in the pre-internet era. Not all his investments were successful and he uses his financial muscle to great advantage, something small retail investors cannot do.
I am presently a PhD Candidate in marketing at the Schulich School of Business in Toronto, Canada (is.gd/weO3eP). I've been investing since 2005 and am an avid reader of (and occasional commenter on) Seeking Alpha. I think Seeking Alpha and its contributors offer great ideas on and insights into both how and where to invest.
From a research perspective, I am Interested in how investors - on forums such as Seeking Alpha - work together to make sense of and understand (and give sense about) the uncertain and ambiguous movements and signals of the market.
If you would be willing to help out with this research, I would be appreciative of your assistance. I'm interested in interviewing contributors (authors and commenters, such as yourself) to the site about how and why they use, contribute to and benefit from Seeking Alpha (e.g. What role does SA play in your investing? What contributions do you benefit from the most? What goes into making a contribution on the site?). Any interview would occur at your convenience (over Skype or phone) and would last approximately 60-90 minutes. Your responses will be instrumental in the development of research that will be targeted towards a top-tier academic journal (and will help me out with my dissertation!). In order to maintain anonymity, unless you specifically indicate otherwise, any direct quotes reported from your interview will be attributed to a pseudonym.
If you're interested in assisting with this research (or just finding out more about it), please send me a note here or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your consideration!
Attended Texas Tech University 97-02, I began trading the stock market a few years back and I must say, im addicted. I love learning and reading everyone's opinions and research articles. Keep up the good work.
i am a software engineer, self taught stock trader, i've been trading for 4 years with mixed success. i began trading gold stocks because i found a friend that i trusted and learned how to trade from his sage advice.
i like to use my own TA to enter trades in the PM sector, choosing stocks that are advised from people i trust who've done the fundamentals on those companies.
i've been applying my own fundamental, technical and sentiment analysis to technology stocks with some pretty good success over the last year.
looking forward to sharing trading ideas.
