I consider myself a value investor. I seek trends in the market an follow them with a keen sense of direction. My education is self taught. I have read books ranging from value investing for dummies to a integrated circuits. I am familiar with some histories and know how's of past markets and sustained future markets. I understand federal reports such as the beige book to fed tapering and consumer sentiment. I feel that I am confident in my findings and stand tall with a portfolio that has stayed strong for the past 4 years.
