Long a buy and hold investor, I now believe that buy and hold has to be re-evaluated in a world of ever increasing, instant information and huge gyrations in markets all over the world. A value investor at heart, I anchor my portfolio with conservative funds and blue chip dividend stocks, but have enjoyed great returns by utilizing a portion of my portfolio on microcaps, cleantech and new technology stocks. That change in sentiment resulted in a 471% return over two years.

Hope someday very soon to move abroad. Very sad and heartbreaking to see what this country has become
' It is what it is "
Each day we live is a gift, so thank God in the morning for another day of life, and thank God in the evening for getting you through the day. Tomorrow is not a promise, merely a chance.

Purely amateur investor trying to survive the artificially rigged monetary system we are living in where 'socialised' healthcare to protect the average, is bad, but the state bailing out the very wealthiest people and financial institutions - indeed the people who have profited directly from wrecking the financial system with billions of tax dollars - is totally fine. Apart from that, I find investing fun :)
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?

I am a wedding planner living in the Vancouver B.C. area who became environmentally aware as a result of the oil spill in the Gulf Region. I believe the world must end its dependency on oil and I look for investments that are home runs in solar, clean tech, wind energy and technology.
