I have been actively investing in individual stocks for 8 years, ever since I landed a job that offered a 401K. That sparked a passion for investing that is unshakeable. I have a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration with a heavy emphasis in financial analysis.
I believe in investing in businesses you understand and companies that make products or provide services you use. I believe, as consumers, we have insight that often is not applied to financial analysis because the stock market seems so intimidating.
I specialize in teaching people to leverage the knowledge they already possess to assist them in making sound financial decisions.
I have been an independent investor and trader in the Forex, Stock Market, and Commodity markets for 10 years. I also serve as the managing director of a charitable fund.

Jason Cimpl is a Research Analyst at Wyatt Investment Research who focuses on stock analysis and active trading. His financial career also includes auditing and mutual fund research.
Jason started at Wyatt Investment Research in 2007 and has been the lead researcher for several of their newsletters. His most popular service was TradeMaster, a swing trading service that ran from 2008 to April 2012. Under Jason’s guidance, readers of TradeMaster participated in astounding yearly gains during the newsletter’s lifetime - such as 44.5% in 2010 and 63.2% in 2011.
Today, he invests his personal time studying aggressive swing trading strategy and remains the lead equity analyst of Top Stock Insights - a post he's held since its inception - and a daily contributor to The Daily Profit.
I have been analyzing and trading stocks for over 10 years. I have primarily studied and followed value investors like Warren Buffet. However, I also believe that technical analysis can play a role in analyzing a stock before making an investment. I have found that solid financial analysis, combined with the ability to understand current market psychology is key to investment success.
I also find the best trading spot is far away from Wall Street, my favorite place is a sunny beach in Mexico.
I am planning to form a small private equity company which will focus on activist investing and possibly buyouts of smaller capitalization companies.
