I'm a value investor for the long term primarily focused on firms in the S&P 500 that produce solid free cash flow and pay dividends. I look for undervalued firms using a discounted cash flow model. I reinvest dividends and track performance on a total return, risk-adjusted basis. Five years experience as a SBA lender. B.A. Applied Mathematics, M.B.A. Business Administration. Presently seeking a position in finance. firstname.lastname@example.org
I am a trader by instinct but a fundamentalist at heart. I seek to know the instrinsic value of a stock/company, but I know at my core that its value is primarily determined by what the market "expects".
I am a 25 yr old self educated investor in Stocks including fundamental analysis and options. I am a US Navy Veteran who runs his own own consulting firm. I also am also a marketing and Real Estate consultant.
Mr Gekko is a genuine 68er and native to nothern Germany. With 23 he made his degree in "Computer science" at the University of Hildesheim (near Hanover).
Having worked 15 years in various huge banks and insurance companies as an IT consultant, he quit his job to have more time for his familiy and his hobbies. Guess which is one of it......
He considers himself as an enterprising investor in the terms of modern Grahamology and Buffetology, searching for the crumbs left over by Warren Buffet because the market cap is too small as to be of interest to him.
I am a value investor to the greatest extent possible. I also favor dividend stocks. I try to be a buy-and-hold investor, but sometimes I can't avoid the tempation to ring the register or to accumulate the inevitable tax loss. The main thing I have learned is that I have lost more money by selling too soon than for any other reason. I reside in Henderson, NV.
I'm an investment analyst at a public pension fund that invests via a multi-manager structure. I don't manage money professionally, so this is just a hobby for me. I'm a CFA charterholder.
I have a B.A in Economics from Illinois Wesleyan University, where I also played football and ran track. Lately I've been getting into crossfit as a way to continue my athletic pursuits. Outside of investing, my main hobby is cooking, which I truly enjoy doing, especially for my wonderful wife and daughter.
I have an engineering background and work in the tech industry in Silicon Valley. Value investing has become a passion of mine and I love finding under-valued, under-followed companies with great management that excels at allocating capital.

I trade trends, emotions, fundamentals. Dividends, the threat of bankruptcy, and potential compensation (buyouts, stock buybacks) are the only tether between stock prices and fundamentals. I invest in beliefs.
Investing quotes I try to keep close to my head:
"...time is a limited resource that you're always investing. Will your investments pay off?"
"Trading one asset class with one directional bias would be like a professional baseball pitcher deciding to throw nothing but fastballs. You have many options and pitches – utilize them all."
"Nothing in life is to be feared. It is only to be understood."
“markets can remain irrational longer than you can remain solvent”
"Plain dealing does not appear intelligent. It is simple arithmetic. But this fact does not necessarily make intrigue the more intelligent option. The man who is always scheming suffers from the delusion that he knows all when he only knows much. He is quite different from that wiser sort which accepts a limit to the intellect."
By the time you've learned the rules, the rules have changed. Except when they haven't.
