I am visionary entrepreneur and investor in law. Having spent the early years of my career as a entrepreneur, launched many successful businesses, and the later part in the field financial auditing. My entrepreneur and auditing experience has given me the willingness to accept investment risk if I feel the return justifies it; also, an interest in applying risk management to my portfolio. From an accounting point of view, I am comfortable reviewing financial statements and developing various analyses in an effort to understand a company’s results.
I started investing in November of 2002, looking for value in beaten down stocks. Because I had invested in companies with strong balance sheets and real earnings, my portfolio recovered rapidly along with the market. Starting in 2005, I began seriously studying literature on investing, experimenting with various approaches and applying what I learned from a variety of authors. I enrolled to University and in 2007 graduated as BA in Business finance and in 2009 was granted MSc in Business Finance.
My investment philosophy has been shaped by reading many macroeconomics and financial textbooks. I think that the small investor can outperform the major indices on a regular basis, provided he is willing to do the work and use some common sense and emotional control.
I make my selections by a combination of screening and listening to the recommendations of investors I respect. I complete a systematic review of 10 years of financial figures, using an Excel spreadsheet to ensure that I have looked at the required minimum amount of information. I rely primarily on 5 Year Average EPS and a 5 year history of Price/Sales Ratios. For candidates that look attractive on that basis, I read their financial statements and press releases at the SEC website. I compare them to their competitors and develop some familiarity with their industry and any company specific issues.
The past ten years have been challenging. In early March 2009 I had the memorable experience of watching an account that had been worth more than my house dwindle to where it was worth maybe two cars. It has since recovered. In today’s market, I think many large, strong (and safe) companies are undervalued because investors have been chasing more glamorous and risky fare.
My strategy: I make my investment decisions based on macroeconomics standpoint, selecting between variety of investments instruments like ETFs and stocks. I never gamble with options.
