Former college professor with interest in finance. My serious trading began with IPOs in the nineties, then moved to hunting for high volume "popular stocks" with somewhat regular price swings. I do not short and stay away from options.

I invest in companies that have good 10Q fundamentals & I do read the SEC Reports. I look for trends, and scalping stock prices isn't my thing. Long term gain is my goal. I do prefer NYSE stocks, but NASDAQ sometimes I'll look at.
