Been in the Gaming industry since '88. Before that construction and Jacobson/Club Car dealer. Did my first trade on US steel, bought the calls based on advice from my dad that the strike would end and the price would go up. That was in the '80's. I have a good batting average as far as picking winners, but I am a terrible timer of when to get in and out. I tend to look for mispriced stocks, growth, or dividend plays with a good chance that the stock will appreciate also.
