Brian Anderson

I began taking investing much more seriously in the summer of 2009, as the market was rebounding from its collapse. My grandfather, a child of the depression, taught me the patience and common sense that is required for intelligent investing. Benjamin Graham solidified those concepts in his timeless writings. I am an investor, not a speculator. I went back to school to improve my buisness intuition and analysis skills. I got my MBA in Ohio and now am working on my PhD in Finance in Texas. I look forward to sharing investing insights with the community, and hope that together we can identify great assets to invest in.
