Born and raised in the USA, graduated with a degree in Finance then worked at a multi-strategy global hedge fund for about 4 years analyzing stocks all over the world. In 2007 I left the USA and moved to China to study Chinese and start a business. Now, I am the CEO and Co-founder of eFin which provides wall street level research to main street investors via a proprietary algorithm. Our eFin scoe that takes into consideration hundreds of factors to provide the best period of time to make an investment in a stock.
Nevertheless, my experience working at the hedge fund and running my own business has improved vastly my investment making decisions. I believe Warren Buffett said it best “I am a better investor because I am a businessman and a better businessman because I am an investor”. I have had my share of busts and winners and have gotten wise enough to always look at both sides of every investment no matter how negative or optimistic the situation is.
I am an individual investor.
I started doing dividend growth investing then moved to a more broad spectrum of investing including value, garp, and also investing with special management. I am especially interested in outsider type companies (but not only).
I will try to take a broader view of the business and strategy instead than a short term one and hope to spark some discussions about the fundamental value and development of these companies.
Some of my positions are based on third party analysts that I found compelling. I wish to remain anonymous to keep my work life separate.
We are a 2 partners team managing a concentrated portfolio, with the intention to hold our investments for as long as the fundamentals stay intact. We do not chase, nor wish to participate in the short-term race for returns, choosing instead for the best opportunities to invest in. The time we do so is the time we invest big, taking outsized stakes in what we call the “misguided & misunderstood” investments. Contrary to many, we subscribe to the notion of low risk, high return.
I am a Special Situations/Value Investor, I invest in Relative value arbitrage situations, Bankrupt and Distressed situations, I have 20 years Experience as a bankruptcy/ legal consultant, Financial/ White Collar Fraud Investigator.
Best investments include (GGP) General Growth Properties (HPY) Heartland Payment Systems (WMIH) Washington Mutual Inc. (NFLX) Netflix. I am currently Long Fannie Mae (FNMA) (FNMAS) (FNAMT) Sears Holdings Inc.

I run a small, private long/short portfolio. I focus on long term value, with a full expectation of showing paper losses in the short-term. Agnostic on the topic of catalysts. Wary of false precision. Usually ignorant of quarterly results and analyst forecasts. Seeking durable insights on business models and industry trends, and general wisdom.
