A Modern Fable

Some years ago I received a version of this in an un-credited e-mail. I wish I could take ownership of these wise thoughts. They are worth repeating for anyone who hasn’t seen this. Politicians often exclaim; “It’s just a tax cut for the rich” and that is just accepted as fact. But what does that really mean? The parable that [...]

Don’t believe everything you read.

Today’s Wall Street journal featured an article about man’s life expectancy throughout history.  They included this handy chart… I was especially curious as to how the data for the Cro-Magnon Era and the Renaissance Period were verified. I guess they simply used government census data but you never know, do you?

These glorious insults are from an era before the English language got boiled down to 4-letter words.   The exchange between Churchill & Lady Astor: She said, “If you were my husband I’d give you poison.” He said, “If you were my wife, I’d drink it.”A Member of Parliament to Benjamin Disraeli:     “Sir, you will either die on the [...]

Hello. My name is Mike Swanson. I’m the best-selling author of the book Strategic Stock Trading. In a former life I used to run a hedge fund from 2003 to 2006 that generated a return of over 78% during that time frame. In fact it was ranked in the top 35 out of 5,000 hedge funds in 2005.

After I retired from the hedge fund world I setup this website and blog. If you sign up for my free weekly email list below I’ll send you an update on average about once a week on my views of the current stock market trends and share with you actionable investment ideas.

Now I cannot promise you that every stock I find will go up in value. I can’t promise you endless 100% returns as others claim they do and as all the disclaimers say past performance does not necessarily predict future performance and you can lose all of your money in the stock market.

This is reality.

What I can promise you is my dedication to doing the best I can for you.

You see the key to making money over the long-run in the stock market is to manage your risk. Once you sign up to my newsletter I’ll send you a series of educational videos and writings showing you how I use stop-loss orders to cut any potential losses and how I use my two fold formula system that combines fundamental and technical analysis to pick stocks. My goal is to risk one dollar to try to make at least three dollars in my trades by looking for stocks that are priced cheaply on a valuation basis, have high earnings growth, and have excellent chart patterns.

So join my list below and let me help guide you on your journey in the stock market.
