Just your average Joe individual investor who believes that no one will take care of my own money like myself, just need make due diligence of my own investment decisions. Been investing for myself for over 25 years, went through the '87 crash as a young investor, seen the best of early and then late '90s dot.com rush and bust thanks to Greenspam, my most hated financial figure. Was fortunate and took advantage of easy lending practices to start construction business and rode it and got out right on time, and put lots of $$ in stock market in early 2009 when no one had the fortitude to do so. Now just looking to maintain and preserve my portfolio against the inflation onslaught coming in. AAPL and TBT are my single best ideas for investments at this time. For myself, I own 4 companies in a broad range of construction, magazine publishing, and biodiesel venture. This wonderful country has always been the greatest for starting your own ideas and working hard to make them work and see them through, hope it will always continue doing so even though I am totally opposed to the current administration's views.
