Cabeza Howe holds two M.S. degrees in engineering. He has extensive career background in science, engineering and software development. He is a self-made financial analyst and manages his own investment as a business. Focused value investing is his passion. He coined the term "two-in-one" stocks to describe stocks with both growth and value characteristics. He believes in achieving exceptional long-term return through investing in those stocks. Through lessons learned and experience gained over the years, Cabeza believes the "two-in-one" stocks should be found mainly in large and mid caps. He views small caps as unproven and prone to perpetual decline even following days of glory. So he mostly believes trading instead of investing in small caps, with only rare exceptions. He was born and grown up in China and used to trade and write about Chinese small caps. He now thinks Chinese small caps are in particular an area to avoid due to the well known accounting issues. The way Chinese regulators handled these accounting issues along with reported wealth of high ranking officials also convinced him that China is to an alarming degree ruled by kleptocracy. From first hand knowledge, however, Cabeza is still a big believer in Chinese consumers. He thinks the best way to benefit from it is through investing in multinationals like YUM, MCD, NKE, DIS and AAPL.

I was formerly EVP of a major International Investment Bank, and prior to that SVP of a Wall Street retail brokerage firm. I've "retired" to Florida where my involvement with stock and real estate investments takes almost as much of my time as my Wall Street work days.
For over five decades I have been analyzing and investing in stocks and have been through it all, the boom times as well as the crashes. My initial investments were while I was in college pursuing an engineering degree and then an MBA in Finance, and I've been an active investor ever since.
I take an analytical as well as pragmatic approach to investing in stocks with a particular focus on undervalued companies in promising industries. My concentration is with long term growth investments as well as with short term special situations that display promising potential. If the potential with a stock in the latter category materializes, the investment either moves into my long term portfolio or is liquidated with the proceeds plowed back into other worthy investments.
Employing all aspects of technical analysis and market timing, I analyze, evaluate and synthesize individual company profiles, financial data, news releases, market and industry trends, "Stock Watch" lists, analysts’ research, information provided by companies’ Investor Relations staff, etc. I tend to favor firms with rapidly growing sales, a solid balance sheet, high potential product(s) and pertinent insider buying/selling activity.
The lesson that I have learned over the years is NOT to make investments based upon emotion or the hype of the moment, but rather to do due diligence on the relevant facts. If I find that I have made a bad investment decision, I sell it and move on. Emotion should be restricted to loved ones, not investments.
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.
