I am an individual investor and an RIA for a small group of elite clients. I have over 30 years experience in the markets from a stint as a stockbroker to individual investor. I like to look beyond any headline number to figure out what is really going on behind the scenes whether it is a government report or a company earnings statement. Too many times the public in general and investors in specific run with the headline information and this can produce bargains to be snapped up by others with patience and foresight. My style is to use all inputs fundamental, Technical and Political\Geopolitical to formulate opinion based on what these items tell me.
