Full-time value investor living in Tulsa, OK. Finance graduate from the University of Oklahoma; active in startups since 2007 and using Value Investing principles since 2004. President and Co-Founder of ValueMyStock.com, a website with proprietary Value Investing formulas, stock screeners, blogs and analysis. Follow my ideas on Twitter @ValueMyStock. Lover of Rottweilers and the outdoors.
Semi retired and exploring as many financial sites on my spare time to see if there is any real value or interesting opportunities to be found. Been privately investing in short to long term opportunities in resource, energies, internet and communication technologies for over 16 years.
Use to invest in start ups and mid stage companies as part of the mix, but now only focus on well capitalized growth opportunities in resource or energy, strong market and management based projects if tech related or well established companies with years of historical performance. I believe in investing the old fashioned way, research, understanding your investment arena, the people behind it and lots of hard work.
I'm a fundamental driven value investor that likes to look at companies and special situations. I don't have crazy expectations of returns, but I like consistency. I have a long term view, but sometimes may do a short term deal if the market is overreacting.
I like to start with simple metrics such as Price to Book, Price to Earnings, EV/FCF, EV/EBIT, Price to Sales. I look for investment opportunities anywhere as long as the reasoning is in depth and sound. Because I live in DFW, I tend to get exposed to a lot of companies based in Texas and Oklahoma.
