I Know First is a financial services firm that utilizes an advanced self-learning algorithm to analyze, model and predict the stock market. Co-Founder Dr. Lipa Roitman, a scientist, with over 20 years of experience created the market prediction system. The algorithm is based on artificial intelligence, machine learning and incorporates elements of artificial neural networks as well as genetic algorithms to model and predict the flow of money between 8,000 markets from 3-days to a year: stocks, ETF's, world indices, gold, currencies, interest rates, and commodities. The algorithm outputs a predicted trend as a number, which in turn, is used by traders to identify when to enter and exit the market. While forecasts can be used for intra-day trading, the predictability tends to become stronger over longer time-horizons such as the 1-month, 3-month and 1-year forecasts. Visit us at iknowfirst.com
Retired general contractor. Began investing roughly 25 years ago. Started with a portfolio of mixed ETF's, growth stocks, and index funds. Gradually reallocated portfolio to dividend based investing through REITs and Dividend Champions for future income, with the occasional risk taken on something new.
Don't owe a dime to anyone. Worked hard to get here.
Retired HR administrator.
Financially and politically Conservative
Thoroughly disgusted with the current chaotic economic climate, as well as the overwhelmingly self-serving and irresponsible tax-and-spend whackaloons of every political stripe with whom we are presently afflicted.
Longterm buy-and-hold DRIP stock investor.
I've held a lifelong interest in individual investing, personal finance and retirement planning. I'm an attorney who is transitioning to a career as a Certified Financial Planner. I am continually seeking to improve my knowledge with respect to estate planning, retirement planning, taxation, investing and finance; this is a lifetime journey.
I very much enjoy reading articles and comments from the members of the Seeking Alpha community; I think that there are many interesting perspectives shared here, and even some pearls of wisdom dropped, on occasion!
Sites that I read for retirement planning and investing info -- Forbes, the Wall Street Journal, Barron's, Fox Business, Businessweek, the Motley Fool.
Light trader interested in dividend growth stocks. I own every S&P dividend aristocrat, and then some. The aristocrats form the foundation. I have ownership of more companies that I have placed on that foundation. I have several general rules about stocks. Rule #1: Do not buy a stock to sell it. Rule 2: Do not sell a stock you bought. Rule 3: If I am unsure if I should sell a stock, see Rules 1 & 2. Rule 4: If I really am going to sell a stock (fundamentals change, dividend frozen or cut, etc.,), then just sell it and do not look back. Rule 5: no foreign tax withholding (I do not want the money back later, I want it re-investing now, There are plenty of US and British dividend companies) and Rule 6: drip. drip. drip.
