Investing has always been a passion of mine. Inspired by Benjamin Graham's teachings, I find the the process of investing, especially value investing to be rewarding. I believe strongly in the efficient market theory in that it is necessary to perform individual due diligence without relying solely on main stream investment media. Utilizing this approach, I've found that the "small guy" or individual investor is often at an advantage versus the large institutional investors when comparing returns. I trend towards an aggressive posture in my investing thesis while keeping in mind that capital preservation should be utmost importance. Beyond that, I love sharing and discussing all things securities. I welcome any and all constructive feedback.
