To find out more about me feel free to check out the about me page to get more information on my shares and stock market dealings, but let me quickly tell you who I am and what I do.
I am a
thirty forty something husband and father and live in the UK and have been investing in stocks since 2001 using value investing principles.
At their core my strategies can be described as based on old-school Grahamite value-orientated investing.
In plain English I buy the stock of listed usually mid to large cap companies when my research determines them to be undervalued and sell them when they reach intrinsic value or if a good management team is likely to realise value over a longer time frame I’ll hold for a bit longer.
In 2012 I launched The Shares and Stock Markets Blog to focus on all things stock market investing and to share my experiences.
Shares and Stock Markets.com
The Shares and Stock Markets Blog is where I share all of my stock market opinions, articles, research and portfolio updates.
I use the investment style of Ben Graham looking at balance sheet strength and visibility of earnings with an emphasis on developed market mid to large cap stocks. Whereas Graham preferred the group approach towards the end of his investing life I’m happy to buy stocks on an individual basis to make up a diversified group.
The Shares and Stock Markets Blog takes a ‘do it yourself’ approach by providing information and resources to help investors increase their chances of stock markets success and by independent stock market analysis and opinion.
