I've sold my last business so I can spend more time
with our 4 girls. I enjoy trading in the stock market. I love the action, the market presents
opportunities every day. But don't be confused, it's not a casino, YOU CAN WIN if your careful and
In Galt's Long Term Portfolio, the first question to
ask, "Is this a business I want to own?" Next question, "Does management execute well?" I want businesses
that "sweat" profits! Growing businesses with good cash flow. I stay away from companies I don't
understand. I like management that works to improve shareholder value. Preferably, management that has some

I don't like companies that dilute shareholders with

new ride". The Pony Express didn't deliver the mail with one horse! We want to take quick profits, then
find the next opportunity. We hold stocks for days, weeks or months. I don't like losing gains back!
The market movements are making quick profits for my readers right now!
I am an open book. The stocks I recommend are my

don't like to hold onto losers. I don't like to hold forever. Make the money, go onto the next idea. I'll
give you some good ideas to think about for your trades. It's your money, it's not easy, but it's a heck of
a lot of fun when your making money! I do not accept money from anybody to "pump" any stock. What you
get from me is my honest opinion, not hype.
