I'm a small investor. As such I focus on the nano to small cap range. As this area generally seems to be under-researched. I'm probably wrong about as often as right in that I fully reserve the right to be very wrong. I'm currently working as a physicist by trade though you'll find no quant articles from me. I consider myself committed to fundamental analysis. The extent of my direct finance background simply consists of the 20 or so credit hours of economics I took back in college. That and managing my (very) small portfolio.
I've held a lifelong interest in individual investing, personal finance and retirement planning. I'm an attorney who is transitioning to a career as a Certified Financial Planner. I am continually seeking to improve my knowledge with respect to estate planning, retirement planning, taxation, investing and finance; this is a lifetime journey.
I very much enjoy reading articles and comments from the members of the Seeking Alpha community; I think that there are many interesting perspectives shared here, and even some pearls of wisdom dropped, on occasion!
Sites that I read for retirement planning and investing info -- Forbes, the Wall Street Journal, Barron's, Fox Business, Businessweek, the Motley Fool.

I try to carefully trade weekly & monthly stock options with expertise in mining companies & traditional manufacturers. Speak & write fluent Portuguese and speak good Spanish. Resided twice in Brazil and once on Guam Island. Employed at the same large foreign-owned Distribution Center the past 15 years & completely 100% Pro-NAFTA. Smart individual investing is the preferred solution to improving one's economic future, as opposed to vast & vague government handouts. Seeking Alpha is the #1 best financial blog because of honest opinions & superb organization.

Full-time investor searching for talented operators, clean capital structures & scalable growth. No cigar butts or conventional wisdom. My investment philosophy is similar to how I live my life: acquire a few prized possessions at the right price, minimize clutter and maintain flexibility. Twitter: @indievestments
Love the stock market. Look for shorts and longs that are both mispriced and ripe for moving. I've been investing in the stock market for over ten years, primarily on the hedge fund side. I've worked in private equity and like to think about the market, the economy, and society in a broad, sometimes slightly unorthodox way. While I do trade rather actively, and if I had more time, I would increase the level of my activity, I spend a lot of time looking for long-term holdings. I see trading as another asset class for my overall portfolio.
