In my beginnings as a novice investor in the market, many years were spent trying to identify a particular investment strategy that worked for me.

As you well know with any company in the global markets, research, education, and constant due diligence are essential tools in evaluating a potential candidate for your portfolio. I want to share with you some of my findings.
