I AM A NUMBER DUMMY!!
A term I use for the general public MIDDLE CLASS. We are the financially uneducated, unexposed to the stock market and financial investments. Most of us don't even know what the fiscal cliff is. One woman thought it was 70 ft. tall! WOW!
I for one, think we should start teaching our kids financial responsibilities in schools, at an early age. How about a REAL education for once.
Why we need classes like home eck is beyond me. Cooking & sewing?? Read the box & microwave it! I for one support a small tax on investment income to support financial education in public schools. Could help save America.
I'm coming to the game late, so I'm quite aggressive towards growth.
My thoughts on the fiscal cliff?? Shove ur scare tactics where the sun don't shine!!
As for investing, I shoot from the hip. I go with my gut. Common sense goes along way. I don't buy hype. EPS what? What ticker is that?
HISTORY; 20 yrs. prototype machinist. 12 yrs. construction labor, management, owner.

Tony Abbate, CFA is founder and Managing Director of Granite Value Capital, a Hanover, NH based investment management firm. The firm has $80 million in assets under management. Tony received his BBA in Finance and Business Economics from University of Notre Dame in 1992. He received his Chartered Financial Analyst designation in 1997. Prior to starting Granite Value Capital, he worked for nine years as a Portfolio Manager in Fleet/Bank of America's Private Wealth Management division. Tony has thoroughly studied the teachings of the value investment philosophy set forth by Benjamin Graham during the 1930s and 1940s and expanded upon by Warren Buffett and other investors in the second half of the 20th century. In 2000 he completed a study of every publicly traded company with a minimum market capitalization of $25 million (over 5,000 companies) in the United States. From this study he created a universe of about 1,100 stocks that he continuously monitors. Tony's equity investment selection process focuses on minimizing three elements of risk: business risk, balance sheet/bankruptcy risk, valuation risk. Tony looks at stock ownership as owning an interest in a business. His goal is to own a portfolio of companies with return and risk characteristics that are superior to the broader market.
