In Vigila sic vinces

"In watchfulnes thus will you conquer" - that is the most common translation of, "In Vigila sic vinces", the early family motto of the Price's.  I include it here not only as a connection to my family but as a general motto that I believe is worth consideration; I believe "In watchfulnes thus you will conquer" can be applied to every faucet of life. To control something you must be able to measure it, without the measurement, you can not know if you are improving, you can not know if you have conquered your goal.

In measuring our current state only then can we know if we have conquered our goal; "In Vigila sic vinces",  "In watchfulnes thus will you conquer".

Investment Analysis
 

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world: indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.”

-Margaret Mead, 1978

That may be a bit intense for a page on investment analysis but, oh well, the meaning still holds true. Never take the current state of a body of research as a given. Time and time again our understandings of areas of research that were once thought to be known have been challenged.

That quote also applies to where the current state of our industry is and the accessibility of quality investment analysis to the general public. If we want to change that we need to take action.

Following that thought:

The Wall Street Bull

charging-bull-silhouette-6.png

The bull in our website header reflects the original intent of the artist; a representation of resilience, courage, and a model of integrity as well as an antidote to privilege, greed, and excess.

Arturo Di Modica created the charging bull without the involvement of the city, funding the $360,000 project himself in the aftermath of the 1987 market crash. In Dec. 1989, he brought the charging bull to the city and installed it under the Christmas tree in front of the New York Stock Exchange, as a gift to New York. NYPD briefly impounded the sculpture, but after the public protested, the NYC Parks Department officially installed it in Bowling Green Park a week later.

The charging bull represents the courage and can-do spirit of Americans and New Yorkers in particular. In a melting pot of backgrounds and experiences, Arturo Di Modica installed the bull as an antidote to the causes of the 1987 Wall Street crash: privilege, greed, and excess. He believed the statue’s representation of resilience and courage was a model of integrity.

What is the Website Footer?

The footer on this website is one of the Price families, my families, coat of arms. I can't trace my family history directly to one singularly. Therefore, I chose the one I resonate with: In Vigila sic vinces. The most common translation is "In watchfulness, thus will you conquer".
