Providing long and short ideas blending macro, seasonality, technical and financial analysis. Sitting for the CFA Level 1 exam in June 2017.Self-starter, independent, creative, eager to learn. Looking for an internship opportunity in the investment industry in the Boston Metro Area.
I am a retired foreign service officer now living in Europe. I have been a self-directed investor for more than 30 years, part time, and I am now managing my portfolio full time. My major focus is buying into world market growth through both non-US and US stocks that benefit from such growth. This includes U.S. large cap as well as small cap stocks with good export potential.
I have been investing my personal money for the past five years. I have also been able to gain great experience interning at an asset management firm in the research department and will hopefully soon begin a career in finance after my final year of university.
Having recently started building a long term strategy for a dividend growth portfolio, I am interested in improving and learning better ways to identify and evaluate the future great dividend stocks.
I put a lot of faith in numbers and math, but where I need improvement is avoiding this garbage in and garbage out tendency and better understanding FCF valuations and projections.
