Born and raised in Minneapolis, I'm an Econ double major working to become an equity research analyst. While my formal experience is minimal (e.g. none) I have spent a tremendous effort learning the art of investing, actively and creatively building my own portfolio. In his youth, Buffett returned 50% annually. Had it not been for his billions in Berkshire, he'd have continued to do so. Therefore, so can I.
I am engaged in stocks and options investing from an entrepreneurial perspective. How is a company disrupting its field? How efficient is its management? Additionally, I only invest in stocks with valuations that can justify high future returns.
