Reuben Gregg Brewer

Reuben Gregg Brewer spent 15 years at world renowned Value Line, the publisher of The Value Line Investment Survey, before joining The Motley Fool Blog Community. He started at Value Line as a Mutual Funds analyst After graduating from Columbia University with a Master's degree in Social Work. That role required him to discuss investment tactics with professional asset managers and to analyze a vast array of investment tactics. Although he had been an avid investor since his late teens, being thrown into the fire with “pros” provided an investment education that no school could have provided. Reuben Gregg quickly rose to the management ranks, earning an MBA from Regis University along the way, and eventually ascended to the role of Executive Director of Research. This position left him with the managerial responsibility for all of Value Line's research and publishing efforts, including the company's newsletters in the equities, mutual funds, convertibles, and options spaces. Although his roles at Value Line didn't deter Reuben Gregg from his own research and investing efforts, it did impose material limits on his flexibility to invest and write. Unconstrained by those limits, he is now publishing his thoughts with The Motley Fool.
