Their only common thread is a shared parent company, Agora Inc. Agora Inc. was named in the suit by the SEC and was exonerated by the court, and thus dropped from the case. Stansberry & Associates was found civilly liable for a matter that dealt with one writer’s report on a company. The action was not a criminal matter. The case is still on appeal, and no final decision has been made.
I started investing some of my savings in the mid-1970s into the stock market as a High School student who had saved up some money from working odd jobs. I earned a college degree from LEHMAN COLLEGE in 1981 and have been an avid follower of the US economy and the stock market since then.
I suffered through the serious BEAR MARKET of 1980 – 1982 when interest rates spiked to double digits on US Treasury Debt. Then the BULL MARKET of my life started in August 1982 and thanks to President Reagan’s wise Economic Policies which were PRO-SAVINGS and PRO-INVESTMENT rather than Economic Growth through DEBT CREATION and CURRENCY DEVALUATION.
While working full-time at the Social Security Administration in the 1980s I earned an MBA degree in Finance and Investments from Baruch College. I want to stay open to new ideas and receive feedback on how I can improve my investment results. I used to be big into chart patterns and watching the minute-by-minute movements in the market, but now I want to follow companies I feel comfortable with holding for up to several years. Originally visited Seeking Alpha several years ago to read Conference Call Transcripts. Now enjoy the differences of opinion that we can profit over. I hope to start contributing more articles on different topics going forward.
I love charting and swing trading! My interest are in economics (macro/micro) I'm both long & short the markets! I don't care much for fundamentals, or story telling--that is unless you can put pen-to-paper and prove it!
I am an 81 year old retired lawyer and real estate developer.
I got into the securities "game" via the back door ( bankruptcy proceedings) when I took control of a NASDAQ (small cap) listed company in the late nineties.
Dealing with the disciplines which move the market and the regulatory agencies (think SEC)
was a learning curve I don't wish to revisit. However it was a grand education and an experience which propelled me into the market as a totally uninitiated investor. I am fascinated with the vagaries of the market and expect to return to solvency if I can only learn the art of discipline...a big challenge for me.
I AM A NUMBER DUMMY!!
A term I use for the general public MIDDLE CLASS. We are the financially uneducated, unexposed to the stock market and financial investments. Most of us don't even know what the fiscal cliff is. One woman thought it was 70 ft. tall! WOW!
I for one, think we should start teaching our kids financial responsibilities in schools, at an early age. How about a REAL education for once.
Why we need classes like home eck is beyond me. Cooking & sewing?? Read the box & microwave it! I for one support a small tax on investment income to support financial education in public schools. Could help save America.
I'm coming to the game late, so I'm quite aggressive towards growth.
My thoughts on the fiscal cliff?? Shove ur scare tactics where the sun don't shine!!
As for investing, I shoot from the hip. I go with my gut. Common sense goes along way. I don't buy hype. EPS what? What ticker is that?
HISTORY; 20 yrs. prototype machinist. 12 yrs. construction labor, management, owner.
Current; Investments & gardening (yes, profitable..gardening that is ;)
Usually, I try to trade the stocks' of the companies, whose products I understand. Most of them are technology related.
Sometimes, I trade the stocks which I believe has a momentum, and has a possibility of appreciation if it reaches a certain technical level.
I believe stock market is not the best place to invest your money, and it is not for everyone. I try to trade responsibly, and sometimes take a little risk to spice up my portfolio.
I manage investments for high net worth individuals and defined contribution plans. I have worked for 25+ years as a commercial banker, private equity analyst and investment adviser. Undergraduate degree in finance from Indiana University, and MBA in accounting & finance from the University of Chicago. I do my own analysis of all investments, and have a strong value bias.
