I worked for a Fortune 100 manufacturer for 16 years, and before that for one of the nation's largest natural gas pipeline companies. My specialty: financial communications. I prize well-written pieces on SA that give me good ideas. I dislike those that rehash the same old large-cap stalwarts when there's really nothing new to say. I've been doing my own investing for 10 years in retirement. I'm basically a deep value DG investor, but occasionally can be a swing trader (with a small portion of my portfolio) when the opportunity presents itself. I operate primarily through 3 different IRAs, and at any one time, I'm probably following about 30 stocks, which I monitor constantly.
"Demonstrated success is the one outstanding fact which justifies confidence in the outlook for any particular business, and thus the investor will always, as a first test for an industry security, carefully consider the results already obtained." - John Moody
As an editor on the SA PRO team my job is to help find the best content for PRO, to provide feedback and develop talented contributors, and to work with other departments to strengthen the platform.
I have studied to ply my trade in finance with a bachelors in accounting. In 2014, I developed an app to access corporate disclosure materials at the SEC. My grandparent’s home was filled with valuing investing paraphernalia and, naturally, I became interested in the stock market.
