As an investor I am a fan of fundamental analysis. I run the Curious Cat Investing Blog. For more on me see http://www.johnhunter.com/ I manage 2 portfolios on Marketocracy (they track performance for you - it is free) and have beaten the S&P 500 by a a few hundred basis points a year. http://curiouscat.com/invest/investingclub.cfm Largest holdings are Google, Danaher, Apple, Amazon and Toyota. I don't trade much so that could easily still be the case 5 years from now (though I do think Amazon may be a bit overvalued - it is my most likely sell, I have lightened the position some already).
