Strategic trader, interested in stocks with value and good growth potential, also interested in larger macro trends. I actively trade options and may buy or sell options at any time.
I highly urge everyone to look at the following two websites:
I am not affiliated with either site. All I know is they have both helped me tremendously. Best to you in your investments and reaching your goals.

I'm an Independent investor with a passion for equity research. I'm usually long term minded, but occasionally engage in short term trades.
My trading style focuses primarily on fundamentals, with short term technicals occasionally commanding my attention. I believe that making money in the market requires forward thinking investment objectives, patience, confidence, and a trading ethic that embraces the opportunities presented by short term downtrends.

I live in beautiful British Columbia! As an outdoor enthusiast raised by an uncle and a father who were avid BC outdoors people, BC is a perfect home for myself. My uncle a geologist travelled around the province for his work, and sometimes took an excited me with him, to go on adventures! He had a great regard for geology, investing, sustainable resource development, was involved in the development and success of several British Columbia mining projects and he loved and admired BC wildlife! A percentage of his capital gains he donated to wildlife rehabilitation centres throughout BC, a tradition I continue. He had a marvellous collection of wildlife photos, including photos of very shy/elusive, gorgeous animals such as the lynx. Today I continue his tradition of donating some of my investment proceeds, for wildlife conservation/rehab ie. injured animals or for instance orphaned bear cubs from sports hunting, which is primarily hunting animals for fun (it is illegal in several nations i.e. Kenya, Botswana, Costa Rica...) not sustenance. In my spare time I actively research companies seeking value added opportunities in well managed companies with growing EPS, whose management is shareholder friendly, ie. dividends but also invests in innovation and R&D for future growth. I also consider sustainability practices such as in house recycling and other responsible/progressive practices. I studied economics and environmental science at Simon Fraser Univ. and have worked in venture capital lending for new technology start-ups in BC. Due to a personal commitment to ongoing learning I often upgrade my work skills, take more courses ect... and personal development workshops. I like to inspire others to do the same. I like researching and the due diligence process of selecting stocks to trade/invest in however I do have a very focused outlook on long-term profitability and dividend growth. I hold or have held shares in Apple, Hains, Micron, Lennar, Delta Airways, Wells Fargo, Whole Foods and many others. Financial health is important but so is physical/emotional health to overall wellness, so please all remember to exercise regularly it is fun, eat healthy, and drink lots of water. When you are healthier your cognition improves, ie. exercise increases blood and oxygen flow to the brain key for clear thinking. The key is research, facts and learning from other people such as other traders and investors on Seeking Alpha. All the best! Erica Denison
