I am currently a Computer Science major with Business minor at Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Massachusetts. My investment philosophy is carefully following the teachings laid out by Benjamin Graham in The Intelligent Investor and Security Analysis and also the teachings of Philip Fisher to find good, solid companies trading less than they are worth. The market is almost always efficient (the word almost is key) and it is advantageous to the intelligent investor to find and profit off of the erroneous price quotations proposed by "Mr. Market" on a daily basis. I am a general partner of an investing club that seeks to put the techniques of security, business and financial statement analysis to practical applications. Disclosure: I am long: BP, CALM, and TRN
I just graduated WPI with a degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering. I work full-time as a Systems Engineer and will be pursuing a Master's Degree in Systems Engineering. I have recently become fascinated with investing. For me, its a different way to look at and analyze whats around me. My goal with investing is be able to fund traveling the world.

Here's hoping 2014 is a great year!
Drop a message or email Bryan_Myers@icloud.com. I'm always interested in chatting with other people about investing, business, ideas... anything.
Been interested in stock investing ever since early teens when I read "Beating the Street" by Peter Lynch. Invested in mutual funds throughout my teen years as I learned more about picking individual stocks. Started picking my own stocks recently after seeing little to no growth with my mutual funds and getting tired of the large expense fees. I focus on investing in large cap dividend growth stocks. Goal is to create a well diversified, dividend growth portfolio to be used to retire early.
I am a first time investor who is learning the tricks of the trade. My preferred strategy thus far is buy and hold with an emphasis on sustainable dividend yield. I am currently long MSFT, COP and JNJ. I am very concentrated because I am still in the building phase of my portfolio.
I am a substitute teacher currently working on his school librarian certification. I have an intense personal interest in technology, which I try to avoid investing in too heavily because I understand that my interests could blind my judgement.
