Just another investor, trying to foolishly think he can outperform the market in the long run. :)
While the bulk of my portfolio is diversified among dividend/growth stocks, a healthy international allocation and some preferred stocks for my 'fixed income/bond' allocation, I also dabble in deep-value investing, along with some purely speculative plays with a small % of my portfolio.
Originally from Israel and currently reside in Sacramento California. I was a competitive swimmer for 15 years, including in college, and swimming just like investing is all about patience for the right moment and hard work. Currently, I work in the reinsurance industry as a Risk Analyst on the buy-side.
I'm a German event-driven investor with a combination of both Merger Arbitrage and Distressed Securities. Mainly experienced in Corporate & Investment Banking for a French bank and asset management for a german investment company. Graduated in Finance with a main focus on event-driven studies and financial restructuring.
Street educated small investor who has been a stock picker since 1980. My accountant likes to tell me that I am one of only a very small group of clients who actually make money on my trades.
Motto: I invest in undervalued (i.e. cheap) well-established companies trading at a below market multiple.
The companies that I invest in are large stable companies with proven track records. My goal is the highest total return possible with the least amount of risk.
Professional Background: I am a healthcare practitioner with extensive experience in the pharmaceutical sector. I have a passion for investing honed over the past twenty years through various market cycles.
