I am an inquisitive individual investor who believes in fundamental analysis and a thoughtful approach. I have a voice and a plan to use it because of a natural urge to put forth my two-cents. Little wonder that I chose writing as a career. Much of my work involves analyzing companies and the markets that they are in. I have a particular interest in the metals and minerals industries and I will likely have a lot to say about them here. I believe diversity is important, both in my portfolio and in my work, so it is also likely that I will have a thing or two to say about a broad range of stocks, ETFs, markets and maybe even some economic issues.
