I am currently a college senior interested in finance and investing for the long-term. I view every day as a learning and improvement opportunity. In the past I have worked as an analyst on a repo desk and have also worked as an investment banking summer analyst. My goal as a contributor is to provide an unbiased, easy-to-follow summary of my findings of the selected corporation(s), and to increase my own knowledge of markets and companies through research and practice. I generally contribute based upon my own portfolio and analyses I find necessary - constructive criticism is always welcome and I will do my best to respond to comments.
Iam a very astute and avid investor with over 40 years experience. Started with very little and have managed to amass a very large portfolio. Also a very seasoned and experienced bond buyer. Always searching for the next "Grand Slam Homerun".
Retired CEO and principal owner of equipment manufacturer now focused on personal portfolio, investing in equities and trading options. Harvard graduate (economics), Columbia masters
(marketing and finance).
I am projecting that the US govt is near insolvent and that we will be facing a new Bretton Woods currency agreement bringing gold back into the monetary system in combination with a sudden fiat currency devaluation (across the board-most currencies) against gold over a long weekend or an outright sovereign debt panic by 2020-2025. The least expected outcome double digit inflation is very likely sometime in the future. The Fed PRO-POVERTY policies are going to crush the poor, fixed pensioners and lower middle class since disposable income growth is limited. Beware middle class and retirees your purchasing power will drop dramatically when everyday necessities absorb a larger % of your income. To spread the word to the brainwashed American drones that this economy is one big illusion ponzi scheme and you are infact broke. Issuing more debt to solve a debt problem is crazy. I am accepting nominations for those that played a major positive and major negative impact on our economy.
