T. H. RAPKO AND COMPANY, LLC’s managing member Thomas H. Rapko launched his Wall Street market blog Invest Like A Farmer. This blog presents Tom’s insights and thoughts on the markets using his unique approach of addressing economic events in terms of agricultural principles and techniques.
“I wanted to start a blog that helped investors take a look at current events independent of the existing financial media’s obsession with manufactured crisis and rapid fire trading strategies; I think we need to pause, take a step back, and pursue a completely different approach, a very agrarian approach,” Tom commented.
“Invest Like A Farmer leverages my investment experience,” Tom continued, “which has been meaningfully influenced by Warren Buffet’s annual Berkshire Hathaway shareholder letters, Edwin Lefevre’s seminal work Reminiscences of a Stock Operator, and the Crisis of 1837.”
The combination personal investment experience and meaningful historic influences helped Tom create the Invest Like A Farmer methodology. The value of crop rotation, climate, tillage, the planting cycle, and many other farming themes are incorporated into this unique approach to investing.
“Invest Like A Farmer will address a variety of subjects, from security selection to portfolio management. Its goal is to cultivate life-long financial literacy and internalization of the investment process through the eyes of a financial farmer rather than a fast-trading speculator,” commented Tom.
“I want to offer the investing public an alternative approach to investing, one that is rooted in fundamentals, long-term holding periods, and cash flow. That’s what Invest Like A Farmer is all about,” smiled Tom.
