I am a former securities analyst (financial companies & biotech) and portfolio manager. I largely avoid security analysis (though not underlying statistical and mathematical analysis or industry related work) because for the last several decades I have become increasingly uncomfortable with the level and tone of government regulation of the Industry.
I've worked in aerospace and industrial process businesses for over 30 years with roles in Sales and Operational Planning, Business Intelligence, Competitive Intelligence, Business Development and Information Systems. This perspective I think has provided me some insight into operations and cash flow management of successful manufacturing businesses. A while back I helped start up an investment group of individual investors formed on the basis of friendship and a mutual desire to study the inner workings of successful corporations ... and to make money. I plan on writing periodically on small group investing and hopefully contribute some knowledge and analysis on some of the multi-national industrials for long term investing.
