Contrary Investing Report
Hi, I’m Brett Owens – and I’m a financial junkie. My “problem” started in college, when I got a little dose of the stock market – man, was I hooked…in no time, I was reading the Wall Street Journal religously. After graduation, I also “graduated” to following less traveled publications, stuff you couldn’t find in the mainstream. I then started trading commodities in 2005 – fortunately ahead of the big crowd – after reading Jim Rogers’ classic book, Hot Commodities. Along the way, I’ve had a lot of fun – I’ve made some nice money, I’ve lost big too – and I’ve come to a couple of conclusions: You have to invest opposite the mainstream to make any money, and I really dig sarcastic financial coverage So on this blog, I try to dig up stories that fulfill one or both. I hope you enjoy, and that you’ll sign up for our free daily newsletter. Finally, this blog is a labor of love more than anything. My “day job” is running a time tracking software startup called Chrometa – we’ve got a really cool cutting edge app that captures your time automatically. I really enjoy and benefit from the balanced perspective that I get in the day-to-day trenches of early stage entrepreneurship. If only the jokers running our nation into the ground had similar types of experience!
