I am a petroleum engineer by degree and focus mostly on oil and gas related stocks. I intend to use my education and experience in the oil and gas field to help other investors properly evaluate oil & gas stocks and funds. I welcome any comments, thoughts, or suggestions!
Netherlands based non-professional stocktrader with a private portfolio; good at stockpicking; not good at options. I prefer companies with a good ROI, ROE, PEG-ratio, good and inspiring management, a durable competative advantage. BUY AND ACCUMULATE (B&A) is my approach. I'm in the market for the company's profit, not the stockprice in the first place.
just an average joe investor . Change from aggressive growth to growth income so I could pay the bills.
But had to still keep one hand towards capital gains . Enjoying reading the posts and comments.
Been with SA almost from their start . I have a beer can for a brain so I thank everyone for filling it up with investment ideas and knowledge .
I have written 2 dutch books on value investing: "Aandelen selecteren als waardebelegger" and "Beleggen in bull- en bearmarkten". See bol.com (search for the titles). As a mathematician (Ph.D.) I am most interested in investment strategies with statistically favorable returns. In particular I invest in net-nets (20-30% average annual returns). I find companies with low Enterprise Value/Earnings before Tax and Interest (EV/EBIT) and strong balance sheets (20% average annual returns) also very interesting. Since such stocks are rare I invest globally. Send me a message with your email address to get example articles of my premium research on Seeking Alpha.
I have had a forty year career in business, banking and finance. I retired as a financial advisor with Prudential Securities and have managed our personal investments in retirement for the past ten years. I have a B.A. in economics and am a graduate of the Prochnow Graduate School of Banking program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I also was organizer and president and CEO of a community bank in suburban Chicago prior to it's acquisition by a major national bank.
I am a long only investor with a balanced portfolio of growth and income equities as well as a mix of REIT, MLP, CEF and ETF investments.
I joined Seeking Alpha as a Senior Editor in June 2012, and left to pursue other opportunities in late 2016. I managed the Dividends, Income & Retirement and Expert Insight platforms. D&I focuses on income investment strategies and dividend investment-focused content for investors from the accumulation stage to retirement. The purpose of Expert Insight is to expand and elevate the quality of Seeking Alpha's content by including articles from an industry insider's point of view, designed to help investors make more informed decisions as they consider specific sectors and trends within those sectors for their investing strategies, e.g., utilities or technology. Expert Insight articles offer more of a macro, 30,000-foot-view that goes beyond investment analysis or stock recommendations. I also curated the Dividends & Income Digest, a bi-weekly publication that takes a look at a question that is compelling and relevant to the community, showcases the responses of DI thought leaders, and serves as a round-up of top DI articles. I have a particular interest in retirement-related content, particularly with regard to using a dividend strategy to create a steady income stream for those golden years.
