I am currently working as a Project Manager for an engineering firm. I have BS in engineering and I am currently enrolled in an MBA program as well. When I can find time away from responsibilities at my day job I focus my attention on my passion for investing. Since 2001, I have been an active investor and been closely monitoring, researching and studying financial markets and global economic trends. In my personal investments I primarily take long term positions with US equities at this time. In the footsteps of Warren Buffet and Benjamin Graham I am looking to buy good businesses at a good price for the long term. For stock selection I take a bottoms up approach seeking out value or growth (at a reasonable price). I am also interested in diversification among assets classes. For asset allocation I take a top down approach. In my research, I like to investigate diversification alternatives other than stocks, bonds and cash. I also like to follow developments and research global central banking and government actions. The global markets today are volatile and at times unstable. It will be those ready to adapt that will stand to benefit from any major seismic shifts in global markets that might occur in the coming years.
