Value investor. Have a Master's degree from Carnegie Mellon University. Working at a financial group as an associate in New York City. Twelve years as an independent analyst and investor. Focus on small-cap and large-cap companies. May be on the long side or short side. Interested in privatization deals and investor activism.
I am an individual investor looking to find trading opportunities in small to medium sized companies. I primarily focus my attention and research towards stocks which I feel are severely mispriced. I also consider myself a value investor looking to capture opportunities in larger cap companies which I believe to be mispriced.
Value investor at heart and credit analyst by training/profession.
Having been an investor and credit analyst for the past 7 years, I have been and continue to be passionate about value investing and similarly, I enjoy engaging in a deep dive analysis of companies.
Without any qualifications and experience, I managed to convince Temasek Holdings' credit investment arm: ST Asset Management, of my passion and join them in 2007. During the 6 years span there, I was instrumental with their investments in global structured products and was also entrusted to manage two structured credit portfolios of over USD 500 mn. Notable achievements include firm-wide record return (IRR) of 84% in a distressed debt investment and the structured credit portfolio under my coverage returned 26% in 2012.
In 2013, after having read an incredible sample report (see HeidelbergCement report below) from Lucror Analytics, an independent research firm with a focus on High Yields, I decided to join Lucror to work with the best credit analysts (Felix Fischer, Head of Research and Charles Macgregor, Head of Asia) I've ever come across. Charles and I are developing the Asian coverage for Lucror, which had focused purely on European High Yield earlier. Lucror covers over 100 names in European High Yields and over 40 names in Asian High Yields at the moment. Please visit our website at www.lucroranalytics.com for more details.
I'm excited to discuss and exchange ideas about any names in the Asian High Yield markets (for work) as well as any global stock ideas for value investing (for personal).
As a lifelong learner, I read lots of books, especially in the topics of value investing and cognitive biases. I am always keen to gain new knowledge and insights and look forward to exchange ideas and books with like-minded people.
Worked in the Tech industry for over 7 years. Started investing over 6 years ago, focused mostly on Tech, industrial, Consumer Discretionary and Financial sectors. Value and growth play. Stern MBA and Umich BSE & MSE.
"One of the best ways to do well in this business is to go to areas that have been unexploited by research capability and work them for all you can." -Julian Robertson Managing partner of the Schildpad & De Haas partnerships. Seeking Alpha PRO contributor since the library's inception in 2013. A special selection of investment ideas is available through the Exclusive Research service.
I post writeups of investments in my personal account on Seeking Alpha. I prefer to focus on small-cap ideas that have limited coverage from the investment community. My approach is bottoms-up and fundamental. I believe value investing works because market participants can be overly enthusiastic or fearful, and so I keep a long-term time horizon with a close eye on valuation.
