I am a retired 35 year semiconductor professional who worked in manufacturing management, planning, and production control. I must say that I have always been fascinated by the business cycle and it's effect on production, profits, jobs, and of course the stock market.I am very data driven so you could say my investment style is as a fundamental investor. I would characterize myself as a swing trader.
I am a physician and attorney (UChicago '88) who became interested in finance somewhat later in life. Prior to this, worked briefly for large (>700 atty) law firm. I very much appreciate the postings here-- the articles, commentary, etc --- that I utilize to think and study from on a host of topics that interest me. I am considering registering for an online MA in finance from a non-profit business school for the fun of it. Advice? Presently I am enrolled in challenging online investor education program that has been an enormous help in understanding the various markets --- but alas, I'm not someone who was introduced to this world at age 13 by my parents. Would appreciate comments anyone has about "must-read books" and other cues.
