Adam Galas

I am a 28 year old who has been passionate about investing since my dad introduced me to this way of life at the age of 12. As I grew as an adolescent I used my life savings to try to earn my fortune in the thrilling world of high finance. Along the way I've made and lost several small fortunes through option speculation and aggressive growth investing and learned valuable lessons that I want to share. I am passionate about long-term, buy and hold, income focused investing. History teaches us that this approach is the most powerful means available to build long-term wealth and income. My goal is to teach my readers how to find, research and follow the kind of companies that will make their financial dreams come true.

Re: Was Williams right to reject $53 billion?

I must respectfully disagree. MLP mergers and acquisitions have always been a major part of the business model. For example, EPD and MMP made big news when they bought out their GPs back in 2010 and 2009 respectfully.

Re: Week 27 portfolio updates

Thanks for the link Bill. A few comments.

1. While the FS score modifications they made are interesting, I think that the back test they used has a problem.

Specifically Pioatroski said 7-9 are good stocks, while their back test [more]

Re: Some good low oil price stocks

Some great points. Most bigger oil companies don't get caught up in false bottoms because they plan longer-term, its the small independents that might need the cash flow and are more likely to jump the gun.

That's where the 4,000 or so [more]

Re: Evidence that oil has bottomed

One can never fully explain any oil stock but my best educated guesstimate is that Saudi Arabia and OPEC announcing that they are going balls to the wall with oil production has capped any short-term chances of an oil spike.

Re: An interesting short-term investment idea

Note that I'm not advocating investing in just any stock that has a sky high short-interest and short-ratio. Make sure the company is a good company first, which we know LNN to be, because it passed our extensive screening process.
