@sullivanmp18 Hello Mike . I have been following your posts ; they are insightful and wise. I am a newb . Starting with $75k . I read your post where you mentioned you started with 80 k as a hobby and more than tripled it. I read that you like buying beat down stocks and wait for them to recover . I would want to get any advise from you in terms of strategy or any other tips that I can take from your experience . I am just a mid level engineer and whatever I do , I can never be financial independent with my salary coz engineers are not paid that well . I wanna focus on stocks and would appreciate your help .
