Nick is a former marine, current finance student and independent trader, who is 100% self taught. Nick has particular interest in the offshore drilling industry and prefers to trade in the offshore drilling industry. Nick blends conventional methods of analysis with unconventional methods of his own. One such unconventional method is average forward earnings per share, which utilizes the average analyst estimates of operating efficiency and profit margin to determine a foreword EPS average based off of actual performance. Although a majority of his focus is on offshore drilling, Nick has a diverse interest in investments. Aside from using precise mathematical calculations, he is a value investor, a momentum trader and a dividend investor. His writing will reflect such diversity. "Spend each day trying to be a little wiser than you were when you woke up. Discharge your duties faithfully and well. Step by step you get ahead, but not necessarily in fast spurts. But you build discipline by preparing for fast spurts. Slug it out one inch at a time, day by day. At the end of the day - if you live long enough - most people get what they deserve.

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?

born 1968, followng the stock market since 1992; economics graduate, I became interested in fundamental analysis first and attended a financial analyst master course with AIAF, (italian association of financial analysts) and I passed exams credited by the European Federation of Financial analyst; afterwards I dedicated myself to enhance my technical analysis skills and to study B.Graham and other business valutation models; After working many years on several technical analysis tecniques i decided to adopt a less stressfull approach. My current advised investment approach has three pillars§; ValueAveraging, Dollar Cost Averaging and Automatic investment plan; I use Value Averaging on indexes (ETF) considering the investment macro aspect and possibily considering the long term trend; while for stocks I combine fundamental analysis ( valuation and specific competitive advantage) with automatic investment plan. Core Holdings are on large value sometimes growth stock with strong leadership and competitive advantage bought at attractive prices and possibly with a growing prospect of incresing dividend yield. The third pillar is made up of deemed profitable special situations candidate.
