Charles got his start in the industry at EF Hutton in 1985 as a stockbroker. After four years he then switched gears and accepted a position with a small research firm GreenTree Securities in 1989. It was there that he first saw a niche for independent and timely equity advice, which led to the creation of Wall Street Strategies. Due to the success of his guidance and stock selections, Charles has become well sought after by many highly respected finance-oriented radio, web and television programs. He is widely recognized in the media as a leader among the analyst community, and is routinely contacted for his market opinions by several prestigious news organizations.
