I am currently a student at Johns Hopkins University majoring in Economics. I will also complete the requirements for the Entrepreneurship and Management, Financial Economics, and Applied Math Minors. I have aspirations to eventually go into a field of finance (capital markets, investment banking, venture capital), politics, and eventually non-profit organizations. I started gaining interest in the stock market after reading a couple of books by Michael Lewis. "The Big Short," really opened my eyes to not only why our "Great Recession" occurred, but also to the lifestyle of those on Wall Street. Since then, I have followed the markets and begun to analyze stock options through Salant Investment team. On this team we review potential investments from multiple sectors by utilizing research reports, 10-K’s, and 10-Q’s of firms and utilize this research for stock pitching. We then build multiple valuation models for each potential investment including discounted cash flow models, comparative company analysis, and market multiples If you have any questions or would like to get in touch with me, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'm just your average guy with no formal investment training, but have started to manage my own investments. I've been contributing to my 401k and buying some stocks here and there for years, but not with any real direction. In early 2013 I discovered SA and DGI, and decided it was time to learn about truly investing for my future, and not just guessing about it. I have been on that track ever since.
