I am a student at Middle Tennessee State University. At age 12, I started watching Fox Business during the 2001 market crash. I begged my mom to put my allowance and savings in Starbucks. I mostly stayed busy with school and work, while keeping a loose watch of the market. That was until mid 2013. I sold my Starbucks for a HUGE gain and started investing in 3D printing, oil fracking, and alternative energy. Currently my interests are primarily 3D printing and fracking. I focus more on analyzing strong companies built for long-term growth than on day-to day prices. My first screens are based on fundamentals, then I look at technical data.
