It's worth it when you're trying to move companies, since employers and clients alike want to see it on your resume. I've has some clients request for staff to have a CAMS certification

I think it is good broad based and well recognized certification. If you have experience in the field it requires a bit of studying but is not overly onerous. If you work in AML / CFT I think certainly worth doing

I’m really good at picking stocks because of my background even though my business skills are not as strong. Maybe I’m thinking about this wrong. Any help is appreciated.
