My investment philosophy is two part: 1st - ‘Money in Motion’ = If you don't play you can't get paid. Sometimes it’s quite easy to make money pretty quickly, you can do things like momentum invest if you wish or trade and gear-up with a set plan when an explosive growth opportunity is discovered. The biotech sector has shown it can be extremely rewarding. 2nd - ‘money in cash’ = By not doing anything (staying in cash) you are making a decision and sometimes it's the wise decision. Learning not to lose money and knowing quick money is not sustainable. For me it's harder trying not to lose permanent capital. Overpaying for assets, will take away anyone's game plan. My game plan: Double my money every five years, it’s quite a tough goal. I'm just simply not trying to overpay for any asset that I invest in. That’s my philosophy. It's doing just rational things and not to getting caught in the so-called value traps. I need to say why do I like this business, what do I think the long-term prospects are? I understand the value of sharing trading ideas and try to remain teachable and not right all the time, hence I know the value Seeking Alpha currently offers investors and have joined :-)
