Jordan Kimmel B.A., M.S.
Jordan Kimmel is the creator of the MAGNET® Stock Selection System. His ability to identify companies he believes will outperform the market is demonstrated by the decades of sub-advising to several major well known institutions, through the Magnet Stock Selection System.
Mr. Kimmel began his career as an investor at the age of eight with his first purchasing thirty five shares in H.J. Heinz Co., the people who made the ketchup for his hamburgers. This stock purchase was the catalyst for his love of the stock market. The MAGNET® Stock Selection System had its genesis during Mr. Kimmel’s undergraduate experience.
Following five years in the Office of Management and Budget for the City of New York, Mr. Kimmel refocused his energies on portfolio management and stock selection for high-net worth clients, having been employed by several leading brokerage firms including AG Edwards, Paine Webber and Dean Witter. Over the past twenty years, the MAGNET approach to investing has been used by major institutional clients and has been applied in selected institutional portfolios.
Mr. Kimmel is also the Market Strategist for National Securities Corporation and an Investment Advisor with National Asset Management. With offices throughout the US they are one of the oldest and largest independent brokerage firms in the country.
Mr. Kimmel is a regular contributor to numerous investing related periodicals, and his stock selection process has been featured in Forbes Magazine. Mr. Kimmel also makes frequent guest appearances on ABC News, CNBC and FOX Business, and hosts his own radio show on Voice America.
He is a graduate of the prestigious Bronx High School of Science and the State University of New York at Stony Brook, where he obtained a BA in Economics and an MS in Urban and Policy Sciences.
Stan Weinstein, Editor and Publisher, Global Trend Alert writes "Jordan Kimmel's newest book..."The Magnet® Method of Investing takes on the important issue of diversification, which has been oversold to Main Street. This is yet another example of the need to 'go against conventional thinking' if you want to achieve superior results."
