Medium
Risk Tolerance:
Medium High
Investing Style:
Value Investor
Portfolio Size:
Medium (4-12 Stocks)
Types of Investments:
I prefer to buy companies that are small and watch them evolve into medium and large players in their field. Some of the stocks in my portfolio are meant for their drowing dividends to finance future investments. Others are there for pure price appreciation as the business expands and evolves. I prefer to hold less than 20 stocks but am willing to go over that limit if situations call for it.
Stocks I Own:
BRK-B, BWLD, CMG, KO, MKC, MKL, MSFT, PNRA, SBUX, NFLX, WFC

Investing Favorites

Stocks:
Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) is the company I am most interested in when thinking about the business itself. The new Asian concept, ShopHouse Kitchen, seems to be a real hit and hopefully will be expanded to more areas of the country. The growth hooks for CMG have propelled its valuation into the stratosphere, which is keeping me at bay in terms of adding more shares.
Industries:
The restaurant industry represents a large portion of my holdings. This is one where I can physically go out and try the product, get reviews from others, and have a good idea about expansion.
Boards:
None in particular, any information about quality businesses grabs my attention.
Books:
The most rewarding was The Intelligent Investor, though I have read many more that have played a part in forming my investment philosophy.
Newsletters:
TMF is the only one I subscribe to. I use it as a source of information and ideas, not as a final source for stocks.
People:
TMF1000 has been an excellent ally in building confidence and investing wisdom here at TMF. I hope he finds the Fountain of Youth and sticks around a few decades :)
