"In investing, what is comfortable is rarely profitable." - Robert Arnott I am a "Value" and "Growth" retail investor, looking for opportunities in emerging and undervalued stocks, often counter to conventional thought. I use fundamentals to back up my argument, and also like to point out stocks which I believe to be overvalued. I have enjoyed nice gains from using my strategies, finding value in Research in Motion, SuperValue, ZipCar, and ClearWire (before they all jumped 60% or more). I have been actively trading for more than half a decade, studying mostly stocks. Having the privilege of living in New York, I have attended investor conferences, and sector exhibitions - I am particularly interested in the technological sector. Being a small business owner, I like to see first hand how certain stocks affect their consumers, by doing research in the public and on eBay (where I sell some of my inventory). There are always good investments, and I try to find them through both growth, opportunity, and value.

Hello investors! My favorite thing in the world is stocks, because of the risks, probability, but most of all the rewards. Most people think that the market is an unpredictable monster, but I believe that there is a sort of predictability that can help tame and control it. If history has taught us anything, it's that nothing is for sure; but the largest noticeable trend among success stories are two things: a whole lot of research with a little bit of luck.
I can't help with the luck of course, but I scrutinize and obsess with research. I mission is to be accurate and precise.
