Jonathan Moreland is the founder and Director of Research at InsiderInsights.com, which produces the weekly InsiderInsights Newsletter, and offers institutional strength, real-time insider data and analytics via a subscription Data Module and APIs. He is also principal of Insider Asset Management llc, a registered investment advisor in New York State, and a past contributor to TheStreet.com, Minyanville, and other financial outlets. A fundamental analyst with an MBA in finance, Mr. Moreland identified insider data over 25 years ago as an excellent first screen to determine where to focus his research efforts. He is quoted frequently in the media for his insider analysis, and stock recommendations stemming from it. He is also author of Profit From Legal Insider Trading (Dearborn 2001), and has a new book due out with Wiley. Mr. Moreland is currently on a mission to get investors to expect more from insider data than the commodity feeds they rely on from their Bloomberg terminals, Yahoo!Finance, and other financial websites.
I only look at stocks that have the possibility to double over a twelve month period and stocks in which the risk/reward ratio payout is high. In addition I focus on swing trade opportunities.
I focus more on valuations and risk/reward metrics as opposed to what make companies tick.

I live in Houston and have been cursed with my knowledge or lack of knowledge about oil.
I was first introduced to Price chaos in 1982, while working as an accountant with Dresser Industries. Back then, each Division (Dresser still had a lot of money) had its own Economist and they meet to discuss oil's fate which was +/-$28 p/b. Everyone knew that the stack holders, Saudi , Venezuela, US, North Sea would realize that getting together and controlling supply was the best strategy. But the four Economist were tasked with being Saudi, Venezuela, etc, leaders (who wants to stay in power).
Every leader (individual Dresser's Economist) did what was best for himself. The Economist discovered that with cheating, self-preservation and human behavior this would turn into a price war. I think that the price got down to +/-$9 p/b (+/-1986) at which time the US started to wisely sell oil out of the strategic oil reserve.
I have a High School education and a college degree. I know that in War, the first causality is truth. I search for what the future holds for me and know that its hard to see through my own fog and most of my information comes for the news media who are fighting for ratings.
