I have a B.S. in Economics from the University of Utah. I work as a financial analyst. I enjoy creating linear regression models based on company fundamentals and variables that I think are relevant to the pricing of a particular stock. I follow macroeconomic news very closely. Although macroeconomics can seem too political at times, the more information you have, the more relevant your views on the market should become.
I am a long time buy-and-hold investor from Cleveland, Ohio, with approximately 6 years investing experience.
I primarily target Value stocks, but on occasion am open to "growth at a reasonable price."
Ideally I prefer to invest in Mid-Cap stocks over large-cap or small-cap.
I believe the two best sectors to invest in during the next two decades will be Health Care for growth and Financials for value.
I tend to ignore the opinions of hedge-fund managers or so-called "experts"....rather, my investment philosophy values the opinion of simple minds that come from humble backgrounds.
I am always on a look-out for secular trends; I look for companies that benefit from aging baby boomers, rising interest rates, organic eating, and increased adoption of electronic payment systems.
I tend to pay more attention to a company's qualitative aspects rather than quantitative.

I am a retired elementary school teacher teaching all subjects in grades 3-6. I am a graduate of Grand Valley State University. I completed my M.A. at Michigan State University. I started Investing in 1960 with the help of my father who was an accountant. Currently, I manage my mom's account, four of my accounts, my two children's accounts, and I advise some friends.
I am a value investor to the greatest extent possible. I also favor dividend stocks. I try to be a buy-and-hold investor, but sometimes I can't avoid the tempation to ring the register or to accumulate the inevitable tax loss. The main thing I have learned is that I have lost more money by selling too soon than for any other reason. I reside in Henderson, NV.
I have been in business for the last twenty years, and have an import and distribution company. We mainly deal in womens accessories, that we design, manufacture and distribute to big box retailers like Walmart, Sams club, BJ's wholsale, Costco, JC Penny, Sears, Kmart etc. Thinking about selling and retiring in the nex few years, and looking at different strategies to generate income during retirement.
