I am a 25 year old professional, currently working with Vulcan Materials Company for their Technical Services Department. I serve in a "roving" capacity - covering locations in MD, VA and NC. I run various geological tests in order to ensure that our product meets all state and customer specifications and provide data that is useful in designing job-mixes for asphalt and concrete applications. In the past I have also held positions of; laborer, rail-car switchman, scale-clerk and procurement specialist. After my first year with VMC (due to family and situational circumstances) I took 18 months and earned a sports nutrition certification from the National Sports Nutrition Association and a personal training certification from the National Strength and Conditioning Association. NSCA is currently the only personal training certification that requires either a bachelor's degree or a recommendation for testing. My pre-requisite education was received at the National Personal Training Institute (NPTI) school in Colorado Springs, CO. After completion, I worked as a trainer at Gold's Gym and privately for various personal clients. I am most interested in biopharmaceutical, tech and industrial stocks. I am a small-scale personal income investor and also manage a portion of my 401K as part of my stock-portfolio.
VFC is just a guy with an opinion. VFC's Stock House brings new ideas to the table and opens discussions for a broad spectrum of investors, with a strong focus on - but not limited to - the biotech, pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors. VFC's Stock House provides research, informational and opinion-based coverage of various companies and stocks in multiple sectors.
The information contained within the pages of VFC’s Stock House are not intended to be taken as advice, but as a starting point where investors can follow up with their own DD and devise their own entry and exit strategies. Do not Buy/Sell based solely on VFC's ideas or opinions.
The goal of VFC's Stock House is to 'call it like I see it' - while bringing new ideas, companies, and discussions to the eyes of investors and readers. This is supposed to be fun and new investors should not invest with the idea that this will 'pay the bills' or with the belief that a stock will just keep going up. DD is paramount, but so is sticking to pre-conceived entry and exit strategies and not letting emotional trading get in the way.
Goals must be realistic, if it sounds far fetched, then it probably is. Let the big boys eat the cake - the small investor is just trying to pick up some crumbs, and there's nothing wrong with that!
