Utu Posted February 26, 2014 Share Posted February 26, 2014 Hey guys, I've been viewing these forums for awhile now; I respect and liken to the philosophy of value investing and have been looking to learn from experts and peers. My basic question: how did you guys get started? What would you recommend? I've been working in corporate finance and institutional asset management for 2 years, have my CMA, sitting for the 3rd CFA exam in June, have recently read The Snowball and The Intelligent Investor (loved it!), and currently breezing through One Up on Wall Street. I have a good amount of capital sitting in a savings account earning a measly 14bps since I began working and want to start putting it to work. My goal is to grow my value investing knowledge and confidence to begin making individual stock investments. My current weakness; I can only devote 10-20 hours per week until after my June exam and I have no investing experience beyond my studies and institutional work experience. It goes against my conscience to try to time the market between now and June, but I've sat on my capital for long enough. I'm thinking dollar-cost-average into index funds until after June when I can start moving out into companies I've thoroughly analyzed. Thoughts?
