I am the Executive VP of Zacks Investment Research in charge of Zacks.com and all its services for individual investors. I have a top down investment approach with a focus on value and upward earnings estimate revisions. And there is nothing I enjoy more than sharing insights with fellow investors.
“I started off being interested in [Engineering / Technical Field] back and thought I would do that for a few years. But after getting exposed to stock market I realized that I was much more interested in pursuing a carrier in investment profession because I want to make an impact and work in something much faster-paced. Currently Pursuing by MBA in Finance Analysis. CFA Level 2 Candidate.
20 year old Irish student. Focus on finding penny stocks with massive upside potential and low downside risks. 95% of small cap stocks are garbage but there are some diamonds hidden in the rough.
I own a diversified portfolio of blue chip investment properties and stocks. I like to invest into companies that have a deep & wide moat - when selling at reasonable prices. My stock portfolio is concentrated with Berkshire Hathaway being the largest position.
Graduated from college with a Business Degree and a Major in Finance. Self-made. Retired 12 years ago. Began investing in MLPs, REITS, & Preferreds in 1996. Active personal investor for the last 27 years, which includes the Crashes of 1987, 2001, and 2008. The key to investing is time; investing for the long-term requires patience & commitment while we struggle in the short-term with emotion & logic. Dividends reward me for being patient. I prefer to buy income producing assets when they at the lower end of their trading range; the closer to book-value the better. I tend to buy and hold, unless the valuation gets out of whack, in which case I hope to sell, follow, and re-invest at a later date, post correction.

I am a 20 year old fresh HRM graduate based out of the Philippines and am very keen to learn more about the stock market coz I have recently developed great interest on how to invest, sell and track analysis. I am new to stocks and I'm really interested to learn more about how it all works.
I have a few friends who follow the same industry unfortunately no one has the time to walk me through on how it all works.. Having said that i am here to interact with people on my own and learn the trick of the trade. Will really appreciate if anyone can teach me the basics and how to get started. Look forward to making new friends and sharing ideas.
