Of course, this is a mutually beneficial exercise as I only research stocks that I feel are worthy of extra consideration from investors in general. As I, hopefully, teach readers about a stock I am also very much teaching myself about the same stock. Some of my best investing ideas have come from writing articles, including Discovery Communications Inc. (DISCA) at ~$60 and Boston Beer Co. Inc. (SAM) at ~$150.
My main goal with investing is to make money, and avoid losing it, in the long-term. So, for as long as I write finance articles, be assured that I always have readers' best interests at heart, because often times the readers' interests are the very same as my own!
