Skip to the bottom if you want to know who I am exactly and what credentials I have. This part is explaining the direction of the Primepick, and what I’m going to be doing with the blog. You should read it too.
Alright so for those of you that don’t know, I started the PrimePick when I was 13 years old. Every single stock I’ve ever written about on here (yes ever) has gone on to be profitable – at least for that recommended time frame.
I have been very active on Quora.com recently (it’s a great website, seriously check it out), and was repeatedly asked to write about my stock picks and stock advice, as well as business, consulting, and marketing advice. It started getting to the point where on every single one of my finance posts one or two people would ask me to write somewhere.
I didn’t realize that I would ever be this in demand (because after well over 2 years, this site hasn’t broken a 1000 views), but now I think it’s time that I started writing about my investments again.
EROS went up to $13, when I recommended it at $6 in January (that was my last post, and I onl wrote it because I was trying SUPER hard to get back into this and failed miserably). On Quora, I recommended ARO (Aeropostale), days before it exploded 50% to go as high as $0.39, from when I called it at $0.2. People were calling me “unqualified” and telling me that I didn’t know what I was talking about because I was only 15.
They never came back to that post (because who really wants to talk to an unqualified 15 year old right?), but that was it. I got like 15 people who saw that messaging me that I absolutely had to write, so that’s what I decided to do.
One of the guys on that post reminded me that I had called Netflix in Jan. 2014 before it ran up 86% THAT WEEK! After reading that I realized this could be my resume for my first job, or something that I show to future investors interested in giving me their money.
I will be writing 30 posts in 30 days (or less) about running a business, investing, consulting, marketing, basically anything finance related that you can think of, I’ll write about it.
It’s going to be hard, but I’ll do it. After that, I’m going to write 2-4 posts a week, and keep you guys updated every time I am going to buy a stock.
My name is Sudarshan Sridharan and I’m 15 years old. Last year I made 24% on the stock market, and I have never made a trade for a loss in my life. This year I started a business in January, then after that started running itself (because of good management from people who weren’t me), I started a website design and app creation company. I am extremely business minded and I plan on LLC’ing both companies under an umbrella company sometime in June of this year before I turn 16.
I have been into stocks since I was 7 and a half years old, and I have been investing with real money since I was 11. I turned my Google Finance Play Money Portfolio into my first pitch deck when I asked my dad for real money to invest with.
I don’t use math to justify my trades. Stocks like ARO (read above if you don’t know what I’m talking about) just don’t cut it at a fundamental level, but using my methods and intuition (yeah, my gut feeling), I can find and invest in stocks people don’t expect to ever turn a profit on again. I also invest in high flying tech stocks (although all my normal ones like AAPL, GOOG, NFLX, TSLA, ADBE, FB, all seem washed up. AMZN is probably the only one that I can depend on to make me like ten bucks a share in a day), and extremely risky stocks that could either go sky high, or crash.
My least favorite trades are the ones I always find myself stuck in for months (like the ones I’m in right now with NKE and V), but companies like those, with little to no downside and high upside are the ones I tend to go into after I’ve made a lot of money and want to cool down.
Anyways, I understand that you may have trouble accepting advice from a 15 year old who doesn’t use math to justify any trades, but I do have a very strong and established track record, a strong demand (which I hope translates into views on here), as well as a strong set of principles that I invest off of and follow religiously. I’ll write about them on here one day.
If you ever need something answered on here, just message me using the Contact Us page and I’ll write about it.
Thanks for reading, here’s to a new beginning and a lot of money.
