The clatter of 24/7 investing information has made it harder and harder to focus on the core principles of smart investing. With stock tips rocketing across Twitter and the market’s every nip and pop warranting team coverage on cable TV, it’s not easy to find thoughtful information that will be useful in the long term. The Portfolioist Blog is a forum for intriguing ideas about long term investing and portfolio building. Articles are written by Geoff Considine and edited by Lauren Tivnan. The blog is made possible by the sponsorship of online brokerage Folio Investing and Folio Institutional. Geoff Considine and Lauren Tivnan are both employees of Folio Investing.
Lived in Peru for a few years, hence the moniker (LLamaLima). Received some stock from my Grandpa about 20 years ago and that got me interested in investing. Have been reading and researching investing every weekday now for over 16 years. Passed the CFP exam four years ago, but don't advise for pay anymore...
I have a retirement portfolio (moderately aggressive) and a college portfolio (conservative) that I manage for my son's (see pic) education. Just started an aggressive portfolio for my next car so I can purchase in cash in hopefully 6 years. Between the three portfolios, I am invested in TIAA-CREF, mutual funds, stocks, a REIT, a MLP, a commodity fund and some foreign stocks. I trade maybe 2-3x a month.
Very interested in continuing to learn more about the markets and investing. Currently have subscriptions to Morningstar and Seeking Alpha.
