9+ years of watching the markets every day. I opened an investment account the day I turned 18 and have not looked back since. I focus mainly on value-based investments focusing on long term capital appreciation and a passive investment style. I also enjoy writing to teach new investors the basics of investing (see blog linked below).
My great grandfathers greatest investments were that of the early investments in Ford Motor Company. His investment discipline has been passed down the family tree and likely is woven into my DNA. I have made many initial mistakes investing, but have learned from each event. I have become addicted to stock research and analysis over the last year and a half. My biggest stock analysis asset is my perceptions. I use my eyes much as the preaching's of Peter Lynch.

We have been profiling companies in the small markets since 1999, we have had many winners and have made lots of subscribers huge money of our trades.
We try to pick the “Best” penny stocks or small caps in the market, companies that are on the verge of a break through or that have been gaining momentum in a Hot Niche sector. We focus on real companies and will cover them indefinatly if we feel they have a shot at graduating off the over the counter markets.
We look for news events or triggers that will be a catalyst for an upward surge, and hope to cover the same picks over and over again, giving everyone a chance to profit and never leaving anyone in a company with no coverage.
We know stocks go up and down, so we are not interested in covering companies that are overvalued; zero plus zero is still zero. We look for bargains and over looked and undervalued companies and send them out to you.
Usually around 100 companies graduate or move up annually, this means that most of the companies on the OTC are never going anywhere, and most are usually nothing more than a slick marketing job. We will sometimes pick something for a quick scalp or day trade, but our focus is picking companies we love, with real products and real plans that can be executed.
There is no new form of mathematics, so while a slick marketing campaign will get notice of traders, most real investors who buy these stocks miss the move and lose money because they believed the hype.
Invest in good ideas and companies that you love, and if you stick with them long enough they can become winners too!
We invest in lots of small companies and put our money where our mouth is, we look forward to telling everyone what companies we are investing in next, and keeping you all posted on their progress and opportunities.
