Our Investing Philosophy: Be an Owner, not a Trader!

We encourage all shareholders to adopt a long-term, ownership mentality. When you buy shares, you’re buying a piece of a business, not a stock ticker. Companies need time to grow, and during that time, there is plenty that can go wrong. That’s why we believe it’s so important to understand where you are putting your hard-earned capital.
