I have been trading part time for the past 10 years, focusing on swing trades and identifying how different stocks will "inhale and exhale" through the market. My primary targets are in the $2-$10 range, averaging over 2 million shares traded daily, and looking for an upswing. My goal is to average 10% per month, but will hold on for the long run with stocks that I believe in.
I'm 62...single...retired....living in Kentucky. My background is mining engineering, so I don't have any financial or accounting expertise My focus is simply to look for low PE "value" stocks, with a dividend if possible. I like to trade a stock within a few months.
I've been learning about the stock market for the last two or three years or so. I studied the computer before I became interested in the stock market. I started studying, building and networking computers in 1992. I started playing the guitar in 1983 and the keyboards around 1989 or so. I'll start studying music again in the near future.
Small-Cap PM and Analyst. I love to be first at bat, hitting the micro/small cap stock home-runs. I'm a portfolio builder and stock picker w/o the fluff, one who likes to avoid the crowds and the stock of the day. I'm not a stock collector (market dynamics have changed, love affairs with stocks are so yesterday)--today, a buy and hold strategy must come with an expiration date. I'm forever a thematic player; I carve out positions with an eye on tomorrow's horizon--what technology or medical break-through is going to define a sector over time. The merits of my investment selection is proven worthy only if other investors (horses) eventually follow my lead and find my watering hole.
