Full Time Private Investor
2012 YTD Return (as of 9/13): 54.7%
Former software developer, analyst, manager, and consultant. My largest investments are in hardware and software. My primary focus is on mobile and enterprise/cloud companies.
My predictions and forecasts have yielded positive returns and I am long on the following investments:
AAPL, CRUS, AMZN, TIBX, GOOG, YELP, SPLK, VMW, V, VOD, FB, RAX
I am formerly long, but am presently negative on the near term prospects for the following: CTXS, QCOM, OCZ, ZNGA
Buying AAPL, RAX, YELP, & FB on dips
FIO: A decent prospect, but I tried to get too clever with market timing. Thought it would drop more and sold off with plans to re-enter lower. Instead it went back up. Oops.
ZNGA: I don't really get social gaming but thought I was missing something. Lesson learned.
Industrious 47 year old Pre-press Computer Operator in the Packaging field of graphics. I work for a major Graphic Arts Pre-press firm in the USA. I love God, Family, Friends and Freedom and will give the shirt off my back for my neighbor. Working hard to have a decent retirement through my self-directed 401k plan.
I am a physician and attorney (UChicago '88) who became interested in finance somewhat later in life. Prior to this, worked briefly for large (>700 atty) law firm. I very much appreciate the postings here-- the articles, commentary, etc --- that I utilize to think and study from on a host of topics that interest me. I am considering registering for an online MA in finance from a non-profit business school for the fun of it. Advice? Presently I am enrolled in challenging online investor education program that has been an enormous help in understanding the various markets --- but alas, I'm not someone who was introduced to this world at age 13 by my parents. Would appreciate comments anyone has about "must-read books" and other cues.
