After spending a dozen years making a big name for herself as a highly respected investigative reporter in the financial arena, Melissa Davis took a chance on her longtime dream in 2015 by becoming her own boss so that she could pour even more time and energy into uncovering the truth about suspicious public companies by conducting the deepest research of her award-winning career. At that point, Ms. Davis had already established herself as a fearless journalist with an impressive talent for exposing corporate fraud. Most recently, she served as the founding editor of TheStreetSweeper, a financial news website dedicated to warning investors about risky stocks that she essentially built from scratch. Under her leadership, TheStreetSweeper soon earned steady applause from some of the biggest names in the business and continued to flourish for years. Prior to launching that well-known website, Ms. Davis spent seven years on the staff of TheStreet.com -- an even more prominent financial outlet founded by "Mad Money" host Jim Cramer -- where she quickly rose to become one of the leading investigative reporters on a large and impressive editorial team. Already the recipient of numerous awards by the time that TheStreet.com hired her away from the largest newspaper in her home state, Ms. Davis went on to land a national prize for enterprise reporting from the Society of American Business Editors and Writers (SABEW) by the time that her tenure there came to an end. Today, she spends her days (and, when necessary, plenty of late nights) trying to do what she has always done the best even better: revealing the dirty secrets about publicly traded companies that investors desperately need -- and inherently deserve -- to know! (She also smothers her adorable granddaughter -- the other great love of her life -- with plenty of hugs and kisses at every available chance.)

Financial writer with comprehensive experience in the financial services industry. Experience includes article writing on investments and economic trends as well as in-depth product analysis on global passive equity index funds. Master of Science degree in finance from Boston College. Bachelor of Science degree in finance from the University of Arkansas.
I started writing for Seeking Alpha in early 2012. With an interest in both fundamental and technical analysis, and a strong belief that both should be used when investing, I try to incorporate both in the bulk of my articles.
My goal is to bring a fresh viewpoint to the table on the equities I cover. I'm always "learning." Never stop! I encourage readers to do the same! I believe you can learn a lot from the 30 year veterans, but even the veterans must keep an open mind to the new guy. Each remains closed minded at their own peril.

I have been analyzing and trading stocks for over 10 years. I have primarily studied and followed value investors like Warren Buffet. However, I also believe that technical analysis can play a role in analyzing a stock before making an investment. I have found that solid financial analysis, combined with the ability to understand current market psychology is key to investment success.
I also find the best trading spot is far away from Wall Street, my favorite place is a sunny beach in Mexico.
I am planning to form a small private equity company which will focus on activist investing and possibly buyouts of smaller capitalization companies.
