I belive in analysis but not analyts. Market is driven by so many forces, funds and funds, analysts, finacial headlines, insiders, .... etc. We can not be the mercy of those guys. We need analysis, analysis and analysis... I trade on my analysis and faith.
Interested in technology and financial markets. Undergrad in engineering, MS in Comp Sci and an MBA in finance. Building tools for individual investors to make more informed decisions about the stocks and mutual funds they choose.
Identify businesses that have long-term sustainable growth opportunities and are trading at a good value.
I am a Financial Analyst and maintain my own Site http://www.everythingaboutinvestment.com where i put the articles regarding investment so that it can help each and everyone around the globe to get an detail insight into Investing and Investment.
Retired Navy/GS-Civil Servant, small potatoes investor/trader trying to make sense of all the data I digest from various "experts/analysts." When I first started back in late 90's I relied mostly on gut instinct and articles in magazines and TV. Just bought and sold at Market and held stocks for at least a year and enrolled in DRIPs. That made me some nice profits mostly. Got out of the market in summer of '09 completely when I fell victim to the doom/gloom predictors of major crash up-coming, etc. Jumped back in in FEB '11 and been losing money steadily throughout the year. "The more I read, the less I know." Ready to exit the market again for good this time if I can get out with minimal loss during the next year. (It's all a rigged game with the little guy always left holding the bag--by the time we read the info/news reports, the play has already been made by the big players who await peasant investing to up the price before slamming the hammer down.) Article writers and subscription sellers have it right -- sell so-called expert advise and information via "subscriptions" without the risk of investing. Always some sucker will pay big bucks for the next big tip that will hopefully make him/her rich -- of course it is always elusive and just one subscription away from reality. How many subscriptions does the small-fry need? -- just one more!
Recently read book,"Throw Them All Out...," by Peter Schweizer.--Highly recommended!

Former managing director in the Fidelity Investments group of international companies, with long experience in Asia and Europe, also commodities and commodity-driven economies. Now a private investor in shares and property around the world. May not find bonds attractive again in my lifetime!
I am a fundamentally oriented value investor who complements this with technical analysis to help optimize price points selected for buying and selling.
I like companies with
* significant price to free cash flow
* high return on invested capital and return on equity
* book-adjusted earnings or cash returns exceeding 10%
In terms of geographical focus, I am willing to invest in most markets worldwide. I am skeptical of most Chinese companies trading outside of Hong Kong.
I have been charting global market trends on the internet since 1996, focusing initially on Asia and the US and extending coverage in recent years to the whole world. I use classic tops and bottoms as expounded by Edwards and Magee. Over the last fifteen years I have foreseen the Asian Financial Crisis of 1997, the tech top of 2000, the subsequent bottom in 2003, the crash of 2008 and the subsequent bottom of April 2009.
