I am a value investor. I like to daytrade and ride stocks upward on good news and earnings beats. 2013 had a lot of those, but 2014 - not so much. I am very new to investing and trading, and got into the market in late 2012 after pretend-investing for a few months, but I have had good luck so far. I recently decided to try my hand at article writing, as I often leave rather detailed and lengthy comments on other articles. The amount of revisions required to get an article published was a bit discouraging, and did not allow me to mention opportunities in a timely fashion, so now I am back to just commenting. In 2013, I was the windshield.
I have been researching and investing in stocks and options in my own accounts since 2006. I finished my MBA in 2007 and then worked as the Finance Manager at a start up for 7 years. I'm currently self-employed as an online marketing consultant, but investing is my true passion.
I've found that my skill lies in taking the time to read 10-K and 10-Q reports carefully and being able to then create realistic future projections. As a value investor I tend to look at cash flow as much as if not more than earnings and revenues.
My investment horizon is typically at least 5-10 years, and ideally I place my money into investments which I could see myself holding through retirement. That said, I do also enjoy allocating a small portion of my account to short term options plays.
In our free time, my wife and I love to travel the world. We've each been to over 45 countries and relish the opportunity to see how people live all around the world.
just an average joe investor . Change from aggressive growth to growth income so I could pay the bills.
But had to still keep one hand towards capital gains . Enjoying reading the posts and comments.
Been with SA almost from their start . I have a beer can for a brain so I thank everyone for filling it up with investment ideas and knowledge .
I have degrees in philosophy, political science and business. Started investing for myself about 6 years ago. Primarily oriented towards energy investments, including innovations which will reduce energy consumption.
I am a retired commercial banker and financial planner who manages his own portfolio. My portfolio consists almost entirely of fixed income securities, largely preferred and "baby bond ($25 par)" issues, generally below investment grade. My focus is on credit worthiness. I rely heavily on information provided in 10Qs and 10Ks.
