    As CEO of Fisher Asset Management, Fisher has developed an investment approach and philosophy that cites supply and demand as the primary movers of markets. Particularly, he believes that interpreting and possessing information that other market participants do not have is key to a successful investing approach. Fisher developed the notion of a price/sales ratio in the 1980s and has also published academic articles in behavioral finance. I don't know him personally but I don't like him.
