I earned a bachelor's degree in accounting and finance from DeSales University. I started my career with Deloitte, and earned my CPA (inactive) while working as an auditor. I currently work in accounting in the entertainment industry. I engage in passive and active investing, and writing for Seeking Alpha helps me come up with different investing ideas. I mainly look for bargain stocks, and I prefer to invest based on fundamental values using the techniques taught by Benjamin Graham. Follow @snyderfinance on twitter where I discuss news in finance, post links to my finance blog, and share my latest Seeking Alpha articles. Disclosure: I'm not a financial advisor. All articles are my opinion, and they are not suggestions to buy or sell any securities. Please use your own due diligence and consult a financial professional before trading.
