I have been investing in stocks for 11 years now, most of the time in my native Bulgaria. Over the past few years I focused on the REIT sector and in 2016 I started investing in precious metals companies. No leverage, no short positions. I have a bachelor's degree in Finance and a Master's degree in International Business. I like reading Pratchett and Michael Lewis. Regarding the opportunities that I cover, please take into account that I'm an admirer of legendary fund manager Peter Lynch so I tend to follow a lot of his investment philosophy. My return over 2017 was just above 30%, but don't look too much into that as I play the long game. - Disclosure: I am not a financial adviser.
