Chad is a self professed tech nerd and has been investing for over 20 years. He follows nearly everything in the technology and consumer goods sectors, and is a huge fan of the Peter Lynch investing style. Chad's style is to dig into the numbers to try and make sense of strengths and weaknesses of each company. He doesn't believe shorting stocks is ever a good idea, and is a long-term investor who is less interested in what happened this quarter, and more interested in where the company will be in the next few years. The greatest compliment Chad can ever receive about his writing is when someone who doesn't follow stocks reads his article and says, "You made that simple enough to understand." He is a lifelong football fan and collects football cards somewhat obsessively. He enjoys comedy of all types and loves to laugh, guffaw, and that laugh when no noise comes out.
