Millennial. Financial Analyst for a private mid-size company in Boston. Former property Asst. Controller for Marriott property owned by SunStone (SHO) and LIHTC analyst.
I have been investing my own money since the fall of 2011. Constantly trying to expand my knowledge. I try to follow as much as possible, but tend to concentrate on hospitality REITs, oil & gas royalty trusts, and equities. Generally a long only focus.

I'm a final year undergraduate student at the University of Warwick and I have interests in Quantitative Financial Modeling, computer programming, pure and applied mathematics, statistics and financial trading.
I have been working on a quant model which provides forecasts for stock prices on a daily basis. Check out my blog as I will regularly put up forecasts for stocks I like!
All information provided herein and in all further posts is to be used for educational purposes only and not to be considered as advice or recommendation of any sort. I cannot guarantee the accuracy of the forecasts I put up as the method I am using is still under development and testing. Consequently you should not base your investment decisions on these forecasts, and I will not be held liable for any losses incurred as a result of using these forecasts.

Age 80, retired transportation planner, afterward owner/operator of a small general used book store in Lancaster, PA. Had owned mutual funds but never had any real exposure to equities until October 2008 -- at which point I became aware of the fact that it was unlikely that I would not be able to mess up our finances any worse than the pros had done. Six years later, I'm certain I've made just about every rookie mistake in the book, but our investments are still in the black and I think I'm becoming more prone to judgement than enthusiasm. (I think I've finally overcome the fatal attraction for microcap biotechnical firms...)
