More About John

John portrays Col Ralph E. Twitchell for a
skit benefitting the Fairview Cemetery Preservation Association.

Now with Raymond James & Associates, John R. Adams has served his clients for over twenty years after working twenty-two years in economic research and development of the hospitality industry. As a professional investor his recommendations reflect his personal experience in investing and guiding the fortunes of this generation of his family. John's goal is to align his interests with those of his clients so that they experience a win-win solution to their investing challenges. John doesn't follow fads and contest promotions for investment ideas; to earn repeat business, “you have to treat each client the way you want to be treated. Whether commissions or fees work better for the client, I'm on their side.”

John states his investing philosophy as follows, “I believe that owning a part of corporate America is the only way to maintain purchasing power in the long run. As a value investor, I also pay attention to the behavior of investors and exercise greater care in the extreme market highs and lows, always preferring to buy low and sell high. Proper diversification and planning for taxes and emergencies plays an important part in preserving gains.”

Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss. Investments are subject to market risk, including possible loss of principal.
