I began investing in 1987. My first four investments were Budweiser, American Barrick (ABX), MCI Communication and General Dynamics. Not bad for a newbie. I'm a buy and homework type of guy. In the Jim Cramer vein. My key area's of interest are Tech, Biotech, Energy, Financials and commodities. I run my own money, eat my own cooking & I don't take prisoners'.
