Small-Cap PM and Analyst. I love to be first at bat, hitting the micro/small cap stock home-runs. I'm a portfolio builder and stock picker w/o the fluff, one who likes to avoid the crowds and the stock of the day. I'm not a stock collector (market dynamics have changed, love affairs with stocks are so yesterday)--today, a buy and hold strategy must come with an expiration date. I'm forever a thematic player; I carve out positions with an eye on tomorrow's horizon--what technology or medical break-through is going to define a sector over time. The merits of my investment selection is proven worthy only if other investors (horses) eventually follow my lead and find my watering hole.
I am a retired Chemistry and Physics teacher (and ex- Little League second baseman from the late 50's. I have been studying markets and price action for 10 years and am a positional trader who uses ETF's and individual stocks. I like to have about 5-8 positions working and while I am very familiar with bar charting with a few key indicators, I recently decided to go deeper into Point and Figure methods to reduce my workload. Hey, I'm retired.
