What was your first job and how did you become interested in investing?

I began as an auditor for an accounting firm. Interestingly, I was able to get exposure to many different industries through this position, which triggered my interest towards analyzing companies. I started with investing in resource stocks and mutual funds back during an up-cycle in metals. I did extremely well and was instantly hooked.

What is your most memorable moment in your investing career thus far?

My most memorable moment in my investing career has to be going through the 1999 bull run and watching the subsequent meltdown. Having seen what happened then, I instantly recognized the opportunity for investors to buy on weakness following the 2008 credit meltdown that crushed the stock market.

What is your investing mantra?

Bottom up. I look at companies rather than a sector and I always combine fundamental research with technical analysis to get the full picture before I invest.

CSCO Stock Appears to Be Going in Right Direction In 1999 and into early 2000, the technology sector was making ridiculous upside moves that saw many unproven small companies skyrocket from penny stock status to mid- and large-caps. At that time, the top networking stock was Cisco Systems,…

Weak Sales Could Crimp AAPL Stock The debut of the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) next-generation “iPhone 7” was as expected; it’s nothing really that special to make you want to shell out up to $750.00 to upgrade from the “iPhone 6.” At least that's my view on Apple’s…
