Ten years of Engineering experience are the foundation of my versatile background and knowledge base. I've worked at AAA levels within the Manufacturing and Entertainment industries and have a passion for technology and understanding people and their perceptions.
I've lived in both the US and Mexico and have work experience in both. I'm bilingual and studied French, German and Japanese because I figured they'd come in handy for business later on. I moved around a lot growing up and have experienced both the highs and lows of life in five different states (GA, OH, TX, NC, FL), so I'm comfortable around and understand all kinds of people.
I believe in quality and excellence in everything I do, so it pushes me to always investigate topics fully and produce the best results possible. This attitude is what drove me to start two companies and learn about Finance, Stocks and Investing on my own. As such, I grew a struggling portfolio that was coming off of heavy losses at the end of Q3 in 2015 by 23% and managed to beat the S&P by 13% in 10 months.
My experiences and personality have built up to give me the ability to model and predict the future of technology and entertainment and I use that ability for all of my stock picks and general investment strategies/direction. Thanks for reading.

I started getting into the stock market at the young age of 13. I have been determined ever since then to learn how to make money in the stock market. By the end of high school I was known has the stock market “kid.” For my graduating class my teachers created a new award for one student to be awarded each year due to my passion in the markets. I am proud to be my high school’s first Warren Buffet Award Winner.
My reputation continued in college as have tried to help others learn what I know. I became President of our school’s Financial Management Association, Treasurer of my fraternity Sigma Alpha Epsilon, and also Treasurer of the Inter Fraternity Council. Through the power of leadership I have continued to help others learn the basics of the markets.
I have traded full time using financial derivatives which was very lucrative until the recent market turbulence. I have developed additional risk management rules that adapt to six sigma type events which I share with those close to me. I am now trading again full time with a focus on risk management, profit & loss, and statistical management. Trading is my passion so I strive to utilize 110% of my potential through the continuous commitment to the innovation of the portfolio management profession. I earned my Bachelors Degree in Business Administration as a finance major in 2009.
I now own my own market research firm Shane Edmund Group LLC (www.shaneedmund.com) and help with my father's company in business development/operations management involving the quality end of high-tech manufacturing applications (www.accutechmeasurement.com).
