Most of my investment knowledge is self-taught. 20+ years of experience managing my own money has given me perspective. Suffering from multiple severe drawdowns like in the dotcom crash or the financial crisis and enjoying some multibaggers have been part of my investment journey. Books, SEC filings, annual reports, analyst reports, blogs, free MOOCs (I recommend Mr. Damodaran's), message boards, podcasts, conference calls and newspapers like The Economist are my main sources. To close knowledge gaps resulting from my serendipitous learning process, I have entered the CFA program and passed the three exams on first try. It was fun. I have not applied to become a charterholder. My academic background is in engineering and management. If you point out an honest mistake in my writings, you can always PM me and I am grateful for the feedback. I even like short reports on my long positions. Behavioral finance and all the biases encouraged me to try to stay objective and incorporate new facts.
