I AM A NUMBER DUMMY!!
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?
HISTORY; 20 yrs. prototype machinist. 12 yrs. construction labor, management, owner.
Current; Investments & gardening (yes, profitable..gardening that is ;)
Been an active trader for less than a year for something to do in my elder years instead of blowing my retirement in Vegas [although, I can analogize poker to trading - experience, learning, knowing when ' to play-em & to holdem' & the motives of fellow players].
More later: Market about to close & then a time for a nap.
BTW: I have a degrees in philosophy, psychology & MBA & started, own & invested in 'mucho' businesses. Plus VN Vet & know the language. Also, I have a real estate broker's licenses & insurance licenses & served on a number of boards & taught for SBA + colleges related to marketing, instructional tech & more. Did consulting for a number of 'traded' companies.
Favorite: Biotech because I have a strong chemistry, biology & physics studies.
S.A. is an excellent forum for an eclectic analysis of various markets..
Not a high-falutin' Pee Aich Dee economist.
Just a lowly physician tryin' to make sense of these Interesting Times.

I am but a bemused and conjurepated skeptic in a world of majestic deceptions.
