written by reader Sharing your investing strategy/philosophy

By rollthereddits, February 11, 2021

Hello all,
I’m a recent Irregular member after lurking for a month or so. I’m also a PU subscriber, so happy to share any insight from that and appreciate all the wonderful people that share their experience.
On that note, I thought it would be helpful to have a thread that discusses investing strategy/philosophy, especially for individual stock selection. I have all the ‘long term/retirement’ accounts funded and going well (I think anyway), have my feet wet in crypto, and have recently turned attention to learning how to better select individual stocks, and trying to learn things like options, etc.
I’m willing to bet the more seasoned and savvy members would have a lot to contribute towards helping to better understand topics like:

How do you decide when/how much to invest into a company’s stock? Say if you have $5k, do you spread it evenly amongst 10 companies?
What technical analysis / charts do you study before investing?
What does it mean to be a fundamentals / value investor?
What’s your take on when to exit a position?
Do you buy whatever a particular subscription says to? Or do you buy what you ‘know’?

These are just some of the examples of things we could all share information/insight on in this thread. Hopefully it proves useful to those that read it. Thanks for contributing!
