I graduated from the University of San Francisco with a BA in Experimental Psychology. I've been a long time investor. My first speculations weren't in equities but in gold and silver in 1979. My analyses focus on joining investment opportunities to geopolitical realities and attempting to discern when critical turning points are imminent in each.
Retired from education after 28 years teaching mathematics in grades 7-12. Bought first stock (MO) in 1964 and no, I no longer own it but which I had all these years.Have long-term in IRA SBUX, ABT, BAX, and a few others.Use non-IRA for trading.
Options obviously appeal to me , but I lean heavily toward selling them which has served me well the last 2 years.
I am Seeking Alpha's CEO and Editor-in-Chief. My love for the stock markets goes back to when I was a kid. Who else remembers combing through the stock quotes at the back of the business section of your local paper?
I joined Seeking Alpha in 2006 and launched Wall Street Breakfast and Market Currents, our top-of-class short-form breaking news for investors. In 2010 I became editor-in-chief and in 2015 I became CEO.
I live in Jerusalem with my wife and a bunch of exceptional kids. Most days, you'll find me making the commute from Jerusalem to Raanana. Occasionally I get to work from my home-office, from where I keep an eye on the beautiful Judean Hills.

carefully investing but more often investigating; have had 6 decades of remembered losses in both public markets and private placements. Still a board member of a nonprofit and still holding shares in companies seeded long ago but not yet having reached their investor exits. Trying to be thoughtful about investments and enjoying the experience. Becoming less current all the time, likely finding me to be a doddering old fuddy duddy for anyone reading what I post here.
