Private Investor - Actively manage my investment and retirement accounts.
Trading Methodology - Always looking to hit home runs while slashing singles and stealing bases. (ie I look for long opportunities (GARP) and swing trade while following the major trend. Sometimes use options to gain leverage or safety.)
Trading Frequency - Yearly, monthly, weekly and daily. Differing strategies and time horizons for different stocks and situations.
I am a sixty-year-old Techie. I am long AAPL and RIMM on the Tech side. I own products from neither company. The majority of my investments are aggressive type with some growth and most income-focused. I am a former Edward Jones employee of some 5 years plus. Invested for the medium term.
I am a reformed MD, now with a finance MBA, and studying valuation independently by developing some conservative DCF models using FCF per share. You can make any investment work if you set a low enough discount rate.... that's one of the discouraging things about doing anything other than passive index investing. Forecasting isn't too accurate, those darn standard deviations are too wide. Margins of safety and alpha are rare and hard to separate from the noise.
