CGI was founded in 2004 by refugees from the large online stock infotainment world. Our goal is to counter the advertising and marketing driven financial media with behind-the-scenes, below-the-surface common sense. We run three real-money portfolios. Two are recent but the longest-running one, our Active Value Portfolio, has since its value-focus beginning January 1, 2003, returned over five times the S&P 500 (at writing 10/13/09, 176% versus 34%, updated in real time at www.CompleteGrowth.com). All trades are made with real money and announced to subscribing members first. Our goal is a long-term relationship with our members to increase their knowledge, confidence and results. We are value-oriented portfolio managers offering deep value (Buffett investment fund), defensive value (Graham's Intelligent Investor/Buffett Berkshire Hathaway days), and Growth at a Reasonable Price in our subscription investment service CGI Growth & Value Focus (paid service), and monthly investing for the novice or time-limited investor in CGI Blueprint Investor (free service). We also offer investment education emphasizing value through CGI University, featuring video on demand webinars, books, DVDs, live seminars and live podcasts. Our upcoming event is our small cap value and growth conference Oct. 23-25. You can attend in person or via pay-per-view wherever you are. www.CompleteGrowth.com/LasVegas Join us at SeekingAlpha and www.CompleteGrowth.com!

Founded in 2009 by Ryan J. Morris - as a founder of a bootstrapped software company prior to being a full time investor, I have a great appreciation and respect for the operational details and entrepreneurial efforts underlying the financial numbers of a business.
By day I work in accounting, by night I moonlight as a investment analyst.
I know a bit about business valuation, financial analysis, value investing, the history of investing, hedge funds, etc.

Above Average Odds Investing is dedicated to the premise that there is a “better way” for the average investor to protect and grow their wealth over time. Hopefully, AAOI – through real time investment analysis and commentary, as well as a variety of helpful resources - will act as a “catalyst” for those investors who for far to long have invested in a manner contrary to their best interest (i.e., where the odds are significantly stacked against them).
