I like to research companies and determine their intrinsic value, inspired by the likes of Buffet, Graham and Greenwald. I focus on high quality, dividend paying companies. My investment objective is to maintain and grow my capital with protection on the downside (and the upside will take care of itself). The preference is on maintaining a small and focused portfolio of blue chip stocks. Seeking Alpha provides the opportunity to share my research and analysis with others. I am married to a wonderful, beautiful and intelligent woman and am currently living in Shanghai. I work as an IT manager at a Fortune 500 company.
