I am an individual, self-taught investor with a Masters in Economics. I like playing with data and mostly focus on finding companies that are undervalued and provide good opportunities for investment, but at times will also look into high growth companies with compelling stories despite their valuations.Please note that I am not a professional financial adviser and anything I write or post is not professional investment advice. You must always do your own research or consult your financial adviser before investing.
I come to the finance world after finishing my career as a captain in a large NJ law enforcement agency. I am working on a second career as a writer and armchair investor. I have published numerous interviews with Inspiring Women from around the world working in a broad range of domains for the Women in Business section of About.com.
I recently published a short story and have completed a full-length novel currently under editorial review.
I am a self-professed news junkie as evidenced by my Twitter feed @hefferonjoe

Retired in 2014 after working for two components of the Dow Jones Industrial Average. Despite my work history, my investments are primarily in small cap companies where I believe the markets are less efficient and individual stock selection can be more rewarding.
Education: MBA from The University of Michigan. BA from Skidmore College
A Chinese value-investor who aims to provide research articles with critical views. A qualified CPA and FRM, as well as a CFA Level 3 candidate. Besides a value investing philosophy, I occasionally make opportunistic trades when I identify market inefficiencies. I am currently focused on identifying any good opportunities in Chinese stocks listed on the U.S. stock exchanges.
