Welcome to My SoundBridge Thoughts Blog

MC910215899[1]If you are like me, you focus… on your personal interests as well as your financial success.  I am creating this series of articles, my thoughts, to inform and educate my clients and interested investors. I read voraciously every day. I stay informed of Global events and how they affect our financial future. I study history.  More importantly, I read the published academic and professional investment literature to stay abreast of financial insights. There is a lot of good information out there.

I have conducted my own in-depth professional research in the behavior of markets and investing for twelve years. My investment studies cover value, growth, trend following, momentum, business cycles and risk management. It is important to use basic theoretical ideas and judge success with empirical evidence.  My research involved creating many hundreds of hypothetical portfolios to test investment hypotheses.  The studies have covered various time periods depending upon the availability of reliable data. Some studies go back to 1999, others to 1987. My earliest research goes back to 1915 to understand investment behavior through two World Wars, depression, the market euphoria of the 1920s and 1990s and the challenges of the recent decade.

I will also provide ideas on executive compensation, retirement and other topics from my studies in the Accredited Wealth Management Program.

I will try to give you useful insights. If you find my thoughts interesting, please let me know. Send me an email. If you would like me to discuss a particular topic, I would be glad to, if I have the knowledge.

Quality long-term investing for your financial success.  That is my goal.

Thank you for reading.
