An academic biochemist in the UK by trade but with a passion for investing. I got burned a little by tech stocks in the dotcom bubble and then spent the following 5 years reading a lot before jumping back into the market. Influenced heavily by Ben Graham's books but also Peter Lynch, Phil Fisher as well as Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger. Now I mainly buy-and-hold the stock of good quality companies and count myself as a dividend investor, although I'm not averse to investing in a good growth stock if I can acquire it cheaply.
Long loser trader. My stocks tend to tank. Fortunately, I'm too poor to lose much. During the Bull Run, I would lose by being too conservative, but as the market appears to be peaking I'm more of an impulsive buyer. This strategy should keep my taxes in check.
