Personal Quote:
I've been a self-directed investor since 1994, and have been learning from TMF since 1997. I consider my core competency to be in valuation-oriented analysis, but I look for companies that exhibit a combination of value and continued capacity for growth. (Used to post on the TMF boards as hedden, for those interested.)
