I am an individual investor in a quest to minimize portfolio rotation.
I am agnostic in terms of growth vs value, but lacking the time, the resources and (most importantly) the brains, I tend to look more among the latter set of opportunities.
I am professionally versed in the European upstream O&G arena, but skeptic on its future (and optimist about the clean-tech momentum of California).
One could argue I should have an edge in European stocks: I am from Spain and based in the UK, but like Buffett says, it's far better to buy a wonderful company at a fair price than a fair company at a wonderful price. So my portfolio is OW US and UW Europe.
N.B. If some of my comments are overly cynic, don't be offended, just an invitation to look after your $ more carefully.
Very young (25 years) retail investor, recent graduate of Architectural Engineering in Budapest, Hungary.
Born and lived 5 years in Bavaria (Germany), 15 years in the USA (east/west coast), 3 years in Hungary, 1 year in Slovenia, and now currently in Sweden. Can speak 3 languages fluently (Hungarian, English, German) and have a reasonable knowledge of Swedish. "Global citizen" and "third culture kid" are accurate labels to my way of life.
I assume that people know something I don't and therefore look for those with specific information rather than feel-good analyses written from lofty perspectives.
Capital markets are like forests and jungles. I have lived in them for more than 20 years. I am striving to be like Tarzan. From rope to rope, feast to famine, a desire to another, it is really hard to emulate the boy in a cloth
"When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it."--Frederic Bastiat
