I'm an individual investor, I read up on companies before I decide to invest, I make my own decisions so that I can only blame myself for any mistakes I may make! I do find it strange when people on these advice sites run down companies that they have no investment in, and rarely give a positive as well as negatives. It makes me wonder if they have an ulterior motive for running down companies that they say they have no interests in! I think when an investor with a following has a bad beat, they look for excuses as to why this happened, when instead, they should take it on the chin admit they got it wrong and move on! These investments can go down as well as up! That's what I read everywhere! That's the only thing that is true!
My real name is Frederick Bruckman. ("Paimon" is depicted in the Ars Goetia as a "King of Hell" and expert in the mysteries of the mind--but is also a truly awful pun.) I've completed a B.A. in Economics at the University of Illinois at Chicago, "class of 2013" (enrolled 1989-2012!). I try to buy stocks that are making new highs.
I am a wedding planner living in the Vancouver B.C. area who became environmentally aware as a result of the oil spill in the Gulf Region. I believe the world must end its dependency on oil and I look for investments that are home runs in solar, clean tech, wind energy and technology.
