I've been a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional for many years, and I've been fascinated by stock investing for over two decades. For my 22nd birthday, I requested and got a Value Line subscription, back in the days when they snail mailed bulk pages weekly and you added them into the massive three ring binder. In the decades since, I've learned many painful lessons about investing. I've made and lost money in value stocks, growth stocks, domestic, international, emerging, small, mid, and large, with options, futures, funds, convertibles, etfs and more! I rode the irrationally exuberant elevator up in the nineties, plummeted to the depths in 2002 and 2008, and been buoyed up in between and since. Through it all, I've figured out a system that works for me and that I don't find represented in the newsletter marketplace. I'm quite excited to put my hard won lessons to work for you and share the wealth!
