Approaches:Dogs - No, unless you can tell me what to look for besides that tilt; even with greater knowledge, unlikely that I would bet on dogsHorses - Yes, but I will take out today's Daily Racing Form from my desk and you will have to walk me through some races with real precision and insight.Black Jack - Yes, but I will call people into my office and we will play a few hands; you better be good!Dice - Maybe - can you recite the probabilities for me? Unloaded, one loaded, both loaded?Computers - If you can tell me how you would build a cluster that would hit or exceed Linpack benchmarks, yes. But you will wind up in IT, not the front office. You can assume that I will give you a desk, a computer, some pencils and paper if you start here. I might even throw in some post-its and a stapler.T4A makes good points on defining the client and the time horizon. But you still have to answer my question. I can see you are stalling...Lottery tickets - my assistant can do that for me; with you brand new uni degree, you are overqualified.(Actually having seen jawabean's later post, I agree that the ticket could take you to a comfort zone, if you are conversant and clever with behavioral finance.)My bank's stock - You'd better be joking. I hate that kind of career-services coached response. We need thinkers with a bias for action, not syncophants around here.
