Fifteen-plus years professional experience in securities markets has shown successful investing and surfing to be a lot alike. Predicting the waves means you're a quarter of the way there, but the real skill comes from riding the large swells when they hit.
In the end, in the words of Buffett & Munger, all intelligent investing is value investing; acquiring more that you're paying for. You must value the business in order to value the stock.
I focus on investments in the oil & gas sector with an eye for dividend income and long-term capital appreciation. I typically allocate a portion of my own portfolio and devote some of my Seeking Alpha articles to small and medium sized companies offering compelling risk/reward propositions.
