I'm the author of five published books, an investor and a cancer survivor. I got my start thirty-two years ago doing research for a UCLA economics professor who wrote a stock-picking newsletter. I have been involved in information technology, dental and medical research (former clinical editor with Dentistry Today magazine) and software design. Right now, I'm finishing my sixth book, and writing articles on Seeking Alpha for others who (like me) enjoy doing extensive investment research and profiting from it.
I am a twenty year investor in equities. I watch a mix of technical and fundamental indicators, attempt to buy low in a stage one base, when the long-term trend is bullish. I have read and studied Dow Theory. Over the past years, I have experimented with buy-and-hold, dividend investing, and pattern trading. Currently, I am doing medium-term value trading.
