I am a musician in the United States Army Band. Investing is a hobby and a passion of mine. I am a voracious reader of all things stock market. Value strategies resonates with me, and I try to have a big picture, long-term view of investing. I thoroughly read annual reports to identify the best companies and then wait for the right price before buying in. Quality of earnings, in my opinion, is one of the most important aspects of fundamental analysis, but also one that gets routinely over-looked.
