Individual investor just trying to do my best. I started reading about finance and investing in January 2013. I began buying stocks in Apr 2013 and my eyes were opened to value investing in the summer of 2013 when I found oldschoolvalue.com and read F Wall Street.
When I began reading I knew nothing of finance so I just started with something I'd heard of -- Rich Dad Poor Dad. After realizing that was not for me I moved to Jim Cramer. Cramer is much too fast paced and broad for me so I moved to Buffett books. That's when it began to make sense and I bought my first stocks. F Wall Street was next and finally someone told me when to sell as well as buy so I was hooked. I moved on to Graham, Greenblatt, and Klarmen and I keep on going.
I am interested in any stock and any sector. As long as I can understand the company or situation and explain why the stock is too cheap then I will invest. I prefer micro caps because I feel I can generate an edge with the smaller stocks that isn't available with the large stocks that everyone is looking at.
I am constantly learning and my style is evolving. I believe that children are the ultimate test of patience but owning stocks is not too far behind. I am fine with holding stocks for years or months, it all depends on the situation. I prefer less activity to more and when in doubt, I do nothing.
Value investor focused on micro-caps.

I am an investor relations consultant with 25+ years experience steering IR strategy and outreach for over 100 companies across a range of industries. We launched Catalyst Global in early 2012 to serve as a platform for innovating the IR role to better address the radically different dynamics and needs of public companies and investors.
Catalyst's mission is combining senior level experience and counsel with targeted outreach and efficient communications to deliver real change and share price results for "smidcap" companies in today's markets. We understand relationships and credibility take time, and we root all our work in integrity, candor and a focus on ROI.
I post on Seeking Alpha to expand the reach of client and other investment stories we like - and to understand the nature of these new channels of communication. Networking ideas and working with new media is integral to the IR function - plus it's fun.
CG Focus List is a separate service we use to highlight specific investment stories brought to us by some of the really smart investors we know. Profiled companies can be clients, ex-clients, non-clients or desired clients - but they are stories that offer very attractive investment potential and commensurate risk (there's no free ride in investing!)
My posts are NOT endorsed by the Companies on which I write - client or otherwise. We believe in truth and fair play at all times, and at all costs, and gravitate to those who share that view.
