Investing God's Way
My approach to investing consists
of a three-layered process.
Every layer is critical.
Understanding Economic & Market Trends
God's Spirit provides me with guidance on broad economic trends and market dynamics. He faithfully reveals important aspects to me because I have been called to this as an occupation. These form the background for all subsequent investment decisions. The Biblical basis for this is discussed in my Investing with God Series.
God's Spirit guides me on specific investments in conjunction with my own research. My primary focus is individual stocks. Years of His instruction have yielded an entire array of companies from around the world that I follow. From a practical standpoint, this is how the life of the Vine flows through the branch.
I conduct ongoing research to intimately understand industries and companies. Many of my writings on the True Vine Letter and Seeking Alpha are a product of this research process. This yields further understanding from the Holy Spirit on when and how much to invest.
I have developed a proprietary stock evaluation model that includes inputs from the first two layers of my investment process and also incorporates Biblical economic cycles. This model serves as an ongoing guide for selecting the investments that constitute my clients' portfolios.
