I am a long time buy-and-hold investor from Cleveland, Ohio.
I tend to invest in large-cap and sometimes mid-cap stocks.
I believe the two best sectors to invest in during the next two decades will be Health Care for growth and Financials for value.
I tend to ignore the opinions of hedge-fund managers or so-called "experts"....rather, my investment philosophy values the opinion of simple minds that come from humble backgrounds.
I am always on a look-out for secular trends; I look for companies that benefit from aging baby boomers, rising interest rates, organic eating, and increased adoption of electronic payment systems.
I tend to pay more attention to a company's qualitative aspects rather than quantitative.

I'm only a beginner in my study of investing, mostly here to watch and learn. For the past fifteen years I've been a small business owner in Michigan, selling Japanese and Indian incense by mail order, as well as other gift items from Asia. I'm involved with the arts community intent on revitalizing Detroit, primarily in small film and photography projects. One of my ongoing goals is to partner with animal shelters to give discounts on my products to people adopting pets, which is good for my business and will help to save the lives of some of the many animals who were abandoned when the recession hit and millions of families were thrown into poverty.
