I'm a young man who has a hand full of years in business. I've also studied extensively about business, economics, and governmental policies. I have a small following on Facebook and email. I have not yet started here, but I use Seeking Alpha for a lot of my research on current stocks. I also subscribe directly to the stocks' investor email newsletters that I am interested in. So far since I began at the beginning of this year, my predictions (which I've been carefully recording) have been 87.5% accurate. Not bad for a novice. If my followers have followed my advice they would have gained a 30% growth on their investments.
