I am a value & growth investor.I also trade Stocks, Options, Equities & Gold Long & Short. I have been investing since 1993, I base my investments & Idea's from doing extensive homework and research on the company's that I am consider investing into. I also am a big proponent in researching and making sure the appropriate management team is in place. ''Do your home work.'' Take as much luck out of your stock picks as possible.. I believe that it does not matter if a cat is black or white, as long as it catches mice"..
