Joseph Citarrella is an undergraduate at Yale concentrating in Economics. He began studying the discipline of investing when he was 16, largely to debunk family misunderstanding about what was considered a mystical and arcane field. To that end, he devoured every piece of literature he could find on finance, the stock market, investing, and economics. The process consumed him, and he became borderline obsessed by the countless theories on and challenges of investing. Visit his site: JoeCit (http://www.joecit.com/)
My academic background is in Engineering and management.
Besides one basic accounting course at university my investment knowledge is self-taught.
Reading books, SEC filings, annual reports, analyst reports, blog posts, MOOCs, message boards and listening to select podcasts and conference calls has helped me enormously to evolve as an investor.
