Individual investor interested in learning more about the markets. I mainly look at small cap stocks with limited analyst coverage. Ideal opportunities involve catalysts that may unlock value and overreactions to short term, temporary events. I also enjoy looking at companies with a wide moat in the Warren Buffett sense and Ben Graham 'Net Net' stocks. Background: After attaining a degree in Engineering, I pursued my Master's Degree in Finance and have worked in various finance roles since 2011. In addition, I have passed the CFA Level II exam.
Born and raised in the USA, graduated with a degree in Finance then worked at a multi-strategy global hedge fund for about 4 years analyzing stocks all over the world. In 2007 I left the USA and moved to China to study Chinese and start a business. Now, I am the CEO and Co-founder of eFin which provides wall street level research to main street investors via a proprietary algorithm. Our eFin scoe that takes into consideration hundreds of factors to provide the best period of time to make an investment in a stock.
Nevertheless, my experience working at the hedge fund and running my own business has improved vastly my investment making decisions. I believe Warren Buffett said it best “I am a better investor because I am a businessman and a better businessman because I am an investor”. I have had my share of busts and winners and have gotten wise enough to always look at both sides of every investment no matter how negative or optimistic the situation is.
I work in Energy Project Development & Energy Project Finance, while I went to school to study engineering & economics.
I have been interested in the equity market for some time and continue to seek out ways to learn and improve my investing theses and idea generation. I am always looking to improve - please don't hesitate to offer ideas, suggestions, comments, etc.
CIIA certificate holder who has worked several years for leading financial institutions. Passionate about analyzing any kind of stocks to find out their real value (at least what in my opinion is their real value). When good undervalued stocks are found, they are usually personally acquired (and I am used to short overvalued stocks with put options).

I following value investing mixed with some GARP and special situations, all in a macroeconomic and thematic viewpoint. I like to find companies with sustainable competitive advantages that seem undervalued or unknown by the market, in rising industries with tailwinds at their backs.
I look for market misperceptions, recent news and drastic price changes, and new management strategies that will lead to differentiated returns.
