Where did you get your start in investing and how did you invest your first dollar?

I began following the stock market at 16 years old. Trained in finance/economics desiring to be a stockbroker. I learned that investment products are mostly sold, not bought and that investment banks care more about themselves than individual investors. I’m the world’s worst salesman.

My first dollar invested in the stock market was based on someone else's stock tip, and it promptly lost 100% of its value. It was a valuable lesson to have a strong adherence to investment risk and not to listen to anyone else's recommendations. My best capital gains have come from real estate.

What investing advice do you live by?

Invest in what you know with a strong adherence to risk. The only opinion or view worth following when investing is your own. It’s good to hear an expert’s opinion, but you have to do your own homework, too.

What led you to join Lombardi Financial and Profit Confidential?

Lombardi was just a natural fit after quitting being a stockbroker. The investment bank I worked for offered me another position, but I wanted to focus on U.S. equities, which was not their business. At the time, Michael Lombardi was looking to expand Profit Confidential, so I just happened to be looking in the right place and at the right time.

Immediate term outlook:
The bear market rally in stocks that started in March 2009, extended because of unprecedented central bank money printing, is coming to an end. Gold bullion is up $1,000 an ounce since we first recommended it in 2002 and we are still bullish on the physical metal.

Short-to-medium term outlook:
World economies are entering their slowest growth period since 2009. The Chinese economy grew last year at its slowest pace in 24 years. Japan is in recession. The eurozone is in depression. With almost half the S&P 500 companies deriving revenue outside the U.S., slower world economic growth will negatively impact revenue and earnings growth of American companies. Domestically, America’s gross domestic product grew by only a meager 2.3% in the second quarter, which will negatively impact an already overpriced equity market.
