Sorting the truth or likely truth from the noise is a key attribute of the successful investor. My commentary reflects this effort. See my profile, articles and comments on Seeking Alpha: http://seekingalpha.com/author/robert-mcdonald/comments
Its not about the money, its about planning for both possibilities and sticking to that plan without rationalizing. I call it how I see it. When I'm wrong I accept that reality, and find something else to be right about.
Trading since 1986. I prefer large-cap global leaders with great fundamentals. I believe that the game is totally rigged against retail investors and also that many CEOs and BoDs are self-serving and obscenely overpaid.
