MBA from UNLV. Intrepid stock follower for over 20 years. Have constructed several mathematical models for following stocks. Primary model: evaluate highs and lows of most or all applicable stock stats by dates identifying unique stocks and most desirable cycles for further investigation or investment. Actual desired mathematics: curve fitting to the discovered cycle, identify maxes, mins, and inflection points by taking the mathematical derivative of the discovered function. Project these functions and points forward or into the future through a range of realistic possibilities generating several most likely realistic future scenarios. If the confidence level is high on the data, at least 90%, preferably 95% or higher, making the investment is probably a good idea.
I have been fascinated with finance for the better part of last 4 months. I am currently saving up to start investing, learning different valuation techniques and trying to understand market trends. I read many articles on a daily basis to strengthen my understanding of the macroeconomic trends, company analysis and industry trends. I also enjoy writing and I have been writing for the past 3 months.
New to the investing world as previously our accounts were in mutual funds offered by employers. Attempting to carefully select strong dividend payers, entering on pullbacks to increase yield. Goal is to provide stable income in retirement. Also dedicating part of the portfolio to a few select closed end, high yield funds and strong growth companies to increase the portfolio size. Eventually, the high growth/yield investments will give way to steadier income producers down the road.
Really enjoy learning and have done so reading SA. Thanks, all!
