I have been a practicing CPA for too many decades, now on Puget Sound near Seattle, but an economist at heart (Masters deg from CSULB) I am an investor, a big Seahawks fan and I really enjoy discussing macro econ topics.
I am an independent investor. My investment philosophy stems from the teachings of Benjamin Graham, Warren Buffett, Charlie Munger, Seth Klarman, Philip Fisher, and Peter Lynch (among others). I tend to favor quality stocks with favorable future prospects that can be acquired at reasonable or cheap prices.
