I'm a professor and data scientist who has developed scorecards to detect fraudulent bank transactions. As an investor I look for fraudulent stocks and other stocks that aren't what they seem.
I have been handing the family portfolios since 1991. Being an expert poker player has helped me maintain a clear, concise and unemotional approach to the dynamic world of investing. Investing in stocks, ETF's and mutual funds for over 22 years has given me the experience to refine my approach to the point where my downside risk is generally lower than the norm. I am also a professional musician.
I am a physician by training and now a full-time investor and entrepreneur, with a focus on spin-offs. If spin-offs outperform as a group, why not select stocks from this group as opposed to the broader universe?

From Israel, born in 1977, working as IT Network&Security Specialist. Chess candidate master - chess helps me to remember and follow lots of stocks and companies' business. Chess helps me to be patient and to not be afraid to take risks, to learn from my mistakes and to be resistant to losing value, same in investing. If after buying my stocks they go down it gives me an opportunity to buy more, that is how I see it. No one can predict the market and only a few investors can avoid loss of their specific stocks, diversity is a key. I was pulled in to the market by a colleague in 2014 and don’t have any regret about it, because I start to see how here in IL simple not rich man can continue his life after 40-45 if he loses his job in a high-tech company and how it is possible to buy a home here, maybe even switch this to a primary job in future. I found the “seekingalpha” website after researching the healthcare industry. First steps were ETF's, but after learning & reading a lot about fundamental and value investing and after discovering DGI philosophy, DGI bloggers switching from my ETF's into stocks. I wish to know in which businesses I hold stocks and what I am investing in. I want to invest in what I believe in. Interested in biotechnology especially in cancer treatment companies and in biotechnology in general especially unmet treatment and innovation in medicine. Early in life I wanted to be a doctor and I am interested in the medical sciences in general. Also interested in 3D printing, solar energy, robotic and innovation technology that improves our civilization and our lives. Learning about DGI here, I am proud to be a DGI Investor (learning and I continue to learn a lot from all the people I follow, sorry the list is too long to give individual BIG THANKS to everyone for their great job, hope they will continue to do that!), but some of the people I must say THANKS to, for their works, articles, research and teaching young investors and people making their first steps, people whose all articles are a MUST READ (DoctoRx - for bio/healthcare, Chuck Carnevale - for FastGraph, Value Invest, Industrial and more, David Van Knapp - for DGI, Chowder - for DGI, Bret Jensen - for Economic/Healthcare, Brad Tomas for Reit, Kanak Kanti De - for bio/healthcare, BuyandHold, Puche for their comments, and many more. Thanks for your works and for your comments!)
But in other side I think elegant and perfect portfolio need be improved DGI: Income and Growth portfolio - something like (70/30 or 70/20/10) - 70% - DGI/Income Giant/Large companies 30% - Small/Micro cap that in potential can give to Investor >500-1000% (tenbagger - Peter Lynch) or 20%- Large high growth established without dividend, 10% - small/micro with huge potential one day they can growth to be Giant/Large next (Apple,Gilead) I know my English is weak, but I am working hard to improve it. Thanks for reading my profile and giving any comments and advice.
I am currently a Director of ThrillCapital, we operate several Crowdfunding platforms for Sports & Entertainment. It's an exciting time to be involved in the nascent sector that is Crowdfunding and with a niche proposition, driven chiefly by something people are passionate about, we are offering something a little bit different. As the industry evolves, and legislation in different jurisdictions takes shape, we aim to capitalise on an excellent opportunity.
