Jets fan (obviously). Individual Investor/Trader. Paradox? No. Don't turn a trade into an investment/investment into a trade? Admittedly I have never understood this very popular Investing Cornerstone. Therefore I don't subscribe to this theory (blasphemy?) as I don't trade stocks that I wouldn't own for the long term and don't invest in companies that I wouldn't trade in the short term. Quality Real Estate= "Location, location, location." Quality Stocks ="Growth, growth, growth."
