Chris Markoch is a freelance financial copywriter who is passionate in finding the story behind the stock. A stock chart and fundamental analysis can show and tell investors what is happening. But for long-term investing success, the question that has to be answered is “Why”?

To help answer that question, Chris brings a marketing background to his research and writing. Writers by nature are curious so Chris will often look at a stock’s performance and like any marketer ask, “So what?” Good stocks don’t suddenly become bad. Bad stocks don’t suddenly become good.

Stepping back from the “what” allows Chris to bring perspective that helps investors make wise decisions based on their risk tolerance and investing timeline.
