"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.

"The real key to making money in stocks is not to get scared out of them." -Peter Lynch
This simple quote epitomizes how to make money in the stock market. One of my favorite T.V. commercials is T. Rowe Price’s “How can power consumption in China impact wool exports from New Zealand or textile production in Spain?” As any good investor can explain, this complex global economy is interwoven and any one stock will directly impact others. Living a few miles north of Wall Street in New York City has given me tremendous exposure and insight into investing. I am a "growth" investor, seeking out stocks that have either been undervalued or have unthought of growth opportunities. I think about the logical impact and chain of events that will take place between different events and markets.
When a certain event happens, however big or small, any company is susceptible to being affected by it; I like to find out which.
