We've been investing in securities and bond markets for decades. We own or have held: stocks, bonds, inverse functioning securities, mutual funds, rental props, REIT's, CEF's, ETF's, MLP's, ETN's, baby bonds, etc. We do advise other traders, DGI's, non-DGI's, and manage monies for various other entities, in addition to managing our own. We're here to learn, participate in constructive commentary, share successes and failures, and contribute content. We've remained in the Cxx and/or executive level suites for a number of years at various corporations and LLC's, but like all of our fellow investor's, we started at the bottom of the totem pole with little investing experience & only a small handful of dollars.

Hi, I am new to investing and I have just learned the basics of financing. I am a follower of Warren buffet who is one of the best in the financial world(in my Opinion). I am 24 years old and I started my journey after reading articles on Warren buffet. I am here to help you find value and improved investments from all around the world. Hope you guys will enjoy reading my blog.

My blog is http://tonyp4idea.blogspot.com.
Retired early from IT and work full-time in investing. Develop strategies to trade. It is my passion to check out why some strategies work and why some only work in certain market conditions.
I am a management consultant learning to be an independent investor!
I have been testing different investment methodologies, techniques and philosophies including but not limited to long/short, value, growth, merger arbitrages and others. I have been investing in the equity market for over 5 years.
In my professional life I am a senior equity analyst. In this role I am responsible for analyzing European listed companies and their peers on strategy and financial performance. In addition, I execute research in the field of finance and investing. I am especially interested in (back) testing the risk and rewards of value strategies.
I have completed several Master programs in the field of economics and finance, and I am a Certified European Financial Analyst (CEFA, this is the European equivalent of the CFA). Although I learned a lot and these studies form the basis of my knowledge and skills, many of the subjects were quite theoretical and not of much use for investing in practice (I had to learn the Greek alphabet to grasp all the unnecessary complicated math formulas…).
However, in one program at Columbia Business School (Value Investing) I learned about the simplicity and power of the value approach (invented by Benjamin Graham and further developed by Warren Buffett/Bruce Greenwald). So in my articles I will usually use the value approach to describe what I see as attractive or unattractive investments.
Personally I have been investing in equities for over 15 years and I focus primarily on value stocks that are listed in Europe.
Netherlands based non-professional stocktrader with a private portfolio; good at stockpicking; not good at options. I prefer companies with a good ROI, ROE, PEG-ratio, good and inspiring management, a durable competative advantage. BUY AND ACCUMULATE (B&A) is my approach. I'm in the market for the company's profit, not the stockprice in the first place.
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.
