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.
