Investing Infuences - Peter Lynch, Warren Buffet, and Rich Dad Poor Dad
I retired as CEO of an Automotive Parts supplier, and manage an investment portfolio for myself and family. I have a BA in History from Royal Military College of Canada and an MBA from the University of Western Ontario. My first career was as a fighter pilot in the RCAF, and, following my MBA I joined McKinsey & Company, Inc. leaving them for Canadian GE. I left CGE as a Vice President in 1984 and founded The Enfield Corporation Limited ("Enfield") which grew from 243 employees in 1984 to over 10,000 in 1989 when Enfield was taken over and I was replaced as CEO. In 1989, I acquired control of Algonquin Mercantile Corporation, renamed Automodular Corporation in the late 1990's when I turned it to focus exclusively on automotive parts sub-assembly. Along the way, Algonquin turned a few ageing drug stores into Pharmx Rexall Drug Stores Ltd., sold to Katz group in 1997 and today a major Canadian drug store chain. I have been a private investor since 1971 both directly and through a private company controlled by myself and members of my family.
Recently: Learning how to play options/warrants.
Just another retail trader from Europe seeking for more knowledge about markets and stocks in general. My lessons so far:
1) "Never follow the trend" - You will just get ripped off by the big sharks.
2) "Expect the unexpected" - Especially during QRs and product presentations.
3) "Be patient" - So far 90% of my judgement was correct long term.
4) "Accept the game rules" - Hedge funds and other large institutional investors influence the markets in their favor, not in yours.
5) "Don't hold onto your losses in defiance. Reflect your judgement." - It is never wise to love your stocks. You want to earn money, not to sport a tattoo of your favourite band.
I consider myself conservative in terms of risk management and look closely to P/Es and book values.
I consider the following stocks long: $BBRY, $BMW.DE, $EBAY, $TM, $V
I monitor: $AMZN, $AAPL, $FB, $HLF, $INTC, $JCP, $LNKD, $NFLX, $NVDA, $QCOM, $TSLA
