I am an individual investor who cares a great deal about realistically analyzing companies. I generally disagree with the idea that the market is quick to 'price in' events correctly. If the market does react to events, I believe it tends to overreact, creating buying or selling opportunities. This philosophy tends to leave me slightly out of touch with the market, since it ebbs and flows to highs and lows that I find unjustifiable. I enjoy criticism, because it makes me a stronger investor with a clearer view of my goals in investing.
I work as a contractor for Verizon.

Demonstrated success is the one outstanding fact which justifies confidence in the outlook for any particular business, and thus the investor will always, as a first test for an industry security, carefully consider the results already obtained. John Moody

I have studied to ply my trade in finance with a bachelors in accounting. In 2014, I developed an app to access corporate disclosure materials at the SEC. My grandparent’s home was filled with valuing investing paraphernalia and, naturally, I became interested in the stock market.

I didn't work in anything related to my investing interests.
My trading varies:
Usually a mix short to long term, often to not often.
Usually long term but when events are about to happen it can work out.
I prefer penny story stocks but may follow for years before investing if at all.
I manage a $1B+ portfolio for a family office. Our investments include bonds, equities, hedge funds, and private investments with a wide geographical and asset class dispersion. I have a J.D. degree from Yale Law School and practiced for 30 years as a trial lawyer in commercial cases.

Stock investors are always asking what is the catalyst for value to be realized? I originally thought like this which lead me to take too much risk. I now focus on being patient, controlling risk, and minimizing permanent capital losses. These steps have lead to significantly better returns. Even when there is no clear catalyst, an undervalued stock is eventually its own catalyst.
I think the benefits of communicating on Seeking Alpha are enormous. Many times I have a strong financial view of a company but do not understand the specific industry or industry competitive dynamics. I can often interact and read insightful comments from engineers, scientists, and technology experts. These experts offer great free advice and I try to add value in my specific areas of expertise. One area that I have been specifically helped is the energy sector.
While some investors are very negative of people who short, I view shorting stocks and posting factual information as noble. The focus of course is on truthfulness and accuracy of this information. Anyone who is posting rumors, lies, or other unscrupulous behavior (long or short) to manipulate a stock should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
