Trading and investing full time for personal account and consulting with a money manager firm with assets of over $55 Million. Worked on Wall Street for 18 years at two wirehouses and one boutique investment banking firm. Investment discipline includes taking advantage of Wall Street's tendency to act quickly in herds and overdoing it to the upside and downside, along with standard long term investing in companies with good management that exceed financial expectations. Small companies that have yet to be followed by research analysts and investment firms are of particular interest, as the potential for above average returns, often in a short period of time, exists. Trading strategies are employed when a sell off or a price spike attracts attention for a quick opportunity.
