It seems like you're an engineer, but it also sounds like you work in broadcasting. Either way, it makes more sense now.
Pretty close! I have two degrees, Chem Engr and Broadcast Engineering. Yeah, a bit mixed up but I got the BE degree first after starting Chem Engineer studies, later finished the Chem Engineering and went on to be a plant mgr in a small chemical company. It was privately owned and when the owner retired, closed the place, I changed careers and combined two hobbies, photography and scuba diving to start a TV production company that got me into TV advertising after I quit diving.25 years in chemicals, 22 years in TV advertising production. Top TV shows I did were the TVShopper, Running the Road, Local Leaderboard, and American Angler, plus 4 other one season shows that didn't work out. I did all the technical and worked with talent and sales people. I've done everything from soft porn for Penthouse to Playboy, to NFL cameraman, to tech director for some full length features and a slew of documentaries I produced myself.
I retired decided to close the ad business as I got tired of traveling ( for business) winding it down, paying off the debt, and selling the equipment, and in 2010 I fully retired to my new career of managing my portfolio. So in a small way I do what you do like a job. My strategy in the market is I trade around core positions. I don't do options but I understand how to use the option chains to select when to buy and sell. I pick based on fundamentals, decide when based on the charts. I have huge positions in some of the biggest names with a well diversified portfolio, holding about 35 positions at a time. I'm first a student, and I read on average of one book on investing in the market a week ( audible.com so I can work while I listen to the read) But I buy the books too so I can view the charts.
Was that quote you posted from the website link that I posted?
Yes, it was a pull quote from the real or fake link.
You mentioning these "experts" who write about technology, but know nothing about it, are in every industry. Same thing goes for my industry.
Agree! I get tons of them all the time. I do have a couple of guys I read that list on "seeking alpha" who specialize with analysis on a couple of stocks I hold long. I follow as a student of Jim Cramer and was a subscriber to his service for a year. Most of his basics I follow as they work for me. I do not follow his stock picks blindly but then he says not to do that. I also follow CNBC's Fast Money for tips and ideas and Options action once a week. I'm happy to learn of any others, I promise to check out. I'm never an expert, always a student forever. I pick my teachers carefully.
One thing I guess I don't understand about the market for 3D equipment...
Competition and the fact that no technology is perfect for all people. Eventually, all TV systems including projection will be glasses free because the industry is seeking that level as the Holy Grail. We have had usable glasses free displays for over 4 years now but they all have limitations. The biggest and best right now is from Ultra D but it too has some problems and is not a perfect solution. I use a passive here in the edit suite, a Sony projector in the home theater with a roll up screen, and use autostereo glasses free for my field production work ( my hobby ). When I think the price bottoms and the technology peaks, I will get serious and upgrade my Sony 3D projector to the top of the line 4K model.
