I am currently studying finance at Northwood University. I am a member of the Northwood Mock Trial Team as well as newly elected president of the Finance Association of Northwood University. I plan to graduate May of 2016 with a bachelor's degree in finance.
I have savored the sweet taste of success as well as swallowed some bitter pills since beginning my investing career in August of 2013 but, I have learned a lot and made a little money.
In my quest for knowledge and profit I have become ensnared in the philosophy of value investing. Cheap prices, a wide margin of safety, and caution are the watchwords of the day. I am particularly drawn to special situations but have fared well by simply buying and holding cheap stocks.
My thinking has been strongly influenced by the writings of Ben Graham, Howard Marks, Joel Greenblatt, and SA's very own Chris DeMuth Jr.
