I am currently a 5th year Doctorate of Pharmacy Candidate at Northeastern University. I began investing when I was 8, and have always found the markets fascinating. My adage has always been to find the great companies - not the great stocks. I prefer to research, analyze, and master the inner-workings of a company before I invest - targeting those with the potential for growth. I also enjoy delving into the roads-less-traveled by exploring companies that are not exactly "on the radar." For me, long-term investing is key, and I do not hesitate to scavenge for the "next big thing."
