What was your very first investment?

I bought my first stock when I was just 17 years old. Unfortunately, I quickly saw my $2,000 of hard-earned savings from summer jobs dwindle down to $1,000. Needless to say, I was determined not to lose money on a stock again.

How did you come to be so successful in investing?

After losing half of my first investment at 17, I started researching the market intensely. There was no Internet back then, so I read every book I could find on the topic and took every course I could afford. It didn’t take long for me to start making money with stocks, and that led me to launch a newsletter on the stock market.

How did you come to write Profit Confidential?

Back in 2001, I started a daily e-letter on the economy and the stock market—that was Profit Confidential. At first, I would send my daily “rant” to my colleagues and customers of Lombardi Publishing Corporation. As the popularity of Profit Confidential grew, I brought in two senior investment analysts, George Leong, B.Comm., and Mitchell Clark, B.Comm., to expand the breadth of Profit Confidential, along with guest economic opinion pieces from analysts affiliated with Lombardi Publishing. Today, daily circulation of Profit Confidential is in excess of 400,000.
