The Virtuous Cycle is debuting The Prime Portfolio and The Action Portfolio while building them from the ground up, with complete transparency, and in full public view.
Follow The Virtuous Cycle to watch my story unfold on Seeking Alpha and at www.virtuouscycle.com. All of my current stock holdings can be found at the website, along with analysis and the performance of my holdings, which is updated approximately once per month. I welcome reader engagement at my website, on Seeking Alpha comment threads, or through private messages. Also feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm happy to communicate regarding feedback, questions, or simply for networking purposes.
My goal for my involvement on the site is to help others learn through teaching my investment approach, while also receiving key insights and ideas shared by others.
My name is Jason Rowland, founder of The Virtuous Cycle and forever a student of a business with a passion for investing and a voracious appetite for learning. I bring the following with me to the field of investing:
- A strong understanding of financial statements: As a licensed CPA with approximately five years in public and private accounting, I received the top score in my state on the CPA Exam among 32 four-part passers during my testing window.
- Sound judgment, deep thinking, and careful decision making: As evidenced by 96th-99th percentile scores on multiple nationally-ranked critical thinking skills tests.
- A competitive spirit with a passion for business and investing: In my MBA program, I achieved a tie for the #1 worldwide ranking in the McGraw Hill Business Strategy Game as benchmarked against the performance of nearly 5,000 student teams at 300 colleges on 4 continents.
I look forward to sharing this journey with you and, as always: Be Virtuous!
