I am a very selective, patient, long term investor. I seek opportunity in going long stocks that I feel are undervalued for a multitude of reasons. I am currently (11/15/12 ) holding only two stocks that I feel are misunderstood and under-appreciated to such an extent that I believe the risk/reward prospects are quite favorable. I don't trade out of the stocks that I buy (barring a fundamental change in its core business) and am willing to ride them to $0 if my theories ultimately prove to be incorrect.
I managed large box retail stores for 30 years. I then retired from retail, studied for several years and opened a financial services firm. I was a registered representative for ten years and recently sold my financial services business. Core holdings: EPD, MMP, APTS, BIP, HASI, BX, COR, CVS, DLR, CELG, AMGN, HTGC, JNJ, LMT, MAIN, MHLD, NEWT, NRZ, OHI, RTN, UNP, WPZ, OAK, SIR, SXL, SRLP, TEP, UTX, WPC, MPW, and BIF. As a former Registered Rep, I now own zero mutual funds after seeing how they were destroyed in 2008.
I am a successful Day Trader who plays GAP Strategies.
I call out my trades real time on twitter and stocktwits. My blog contains various patterns that I trade and provide reasons on how to trade them. I offer to teach my strategies and everything you need to know from a Day Trading perspective.
My trading DVD tittled " Stock Trading Success - Mastering the GAP Strategy" focuses on my strategy, terms and indicators that are needed from a day trading perspective. It can also be used for short or long term trading ideas.
