Independent investor with extensive financial experience. Numerous years of trading securities, personal portfolio manager. Main interests are in tech and banking. Personal focus is on tech growth opportunities and deep value plays in the banking sector. Happy to respond to article comments, but often unable to do so because of hectic work schedule.
I am retired and trade daily. I manage about 60% of my net worth and have the pro's manage the rest. They used to manage about 90% but I was doing as well as they were - if not better.so I took over more funds to manage. I would much rather be taking a motorcycle trip to the Florida Keys like I have in previous years but this winter's weather in NJ is just intolerable.. Plus I have a MC trip planned for the summer to Alaska. I think I trade to keep my brain active and I may be a trading junkie..
I’m Ken Faulkenberry, MBA graduate, and founder of the Arbor Investment Planner. My passion is to educate and empower the individual investors to manage their own investment portfolio.
The Arbor Investment Planner is a value investing portfolio management guide for those individual investors who choose to manage their own money. I focus on ideas and concepts important to the self directed investor; but put special emphasis on risk management, value investing strategies, and proper asset allocation and diversification.
I am the portfolio manager of the Arbor Asset Allocation Model Portfolio (AAAMP), a real time portfolio for the benefit of my premium service subscribers. I share my portfolio asset allocation, individual assets, and trade alerts to provide an easy to follow portfolio management guide.
I am an investor.
I've written in years past about the investment implications of economic events, properly understood from the perspective of Austrian School thinking. Recently, I have revised my ideas somewhat. Today, I refer to the ideas I hold to in economics as "Austrian-Classical", thanks to the spectacular work of economist George Reisman. Dr. Reisman's masterpiece
"Capitalism", which consists of 1,100 pages of luminous explanation and reasoning, revised and improved my understanding in profoundly important ways.
In years past, I published articles for investment publications and newspapers, including an article in The International Advisor in August, 1984 predicting and explaining the basis for the long bull market in bonds; an article in The International Advisor in June, 1985 that explained why a big rally in foreign currencies was imminent; an article in The Market Chronicle of October 26, 1985 that explained why real estate prices across the country were about to decline; the front page article in Personal Finance, October 29, 1986 that explained why a major pause and correction in the bond bull market was about to occur; and an August 1986 editorial in the Orange County Register that explained why tax reform would boost the economy. I also published quite a few other articles recommending a few stocks and gold, based primarily on top down analysis.
My education was also helped enormously by Harry Browne, who never knew me. But I knew Mr. Browne, or imagined I did, having poured over every issue of his newsletter for about 25 years.
Now I hope to resume writing and active investment analysis. I have no blog yet, but I plan to create one soon.
