I am a value investor. I like to daytrade and ride stocks upward on good news and earnings beats. 2013 had a lot of those, but 2014 - not so much. I am very new to investing and trading, and got into the market in late 2012 after pretend-investing for a few months, but I have had good luck so far. I recently decided to try my hand at article writing, as I often leave rather detailed and lengthy comments on other articles. The amount of revisions required to get an article published was a bit discouraging, and did not allow me to mention opportunities in a timely fashion, so now I am back to just commenting. In 2013, I was the windshield.
