I began my career as an Aeronautical Engineer and had an interest in capital markets. My interest ultimately led me to go back to school to Purdue University in order to obtain my MBA. I am a student of the Intelligent Investor. I wait for Mr. Market to offer me dollar bills for less than 100 cents. My goal is to take advantage of short term inefficiencies in the market and let the long term efficiency make the corrections. Intelligent investing is not about flashing lights and quick speak, it is about sound, simple, and thorough analysis.
I try to carefully trade weekly & monthly stock options with expertise in mining companies & traditional manufacturers. Speak & write fluent Portuguese and speak good Spanish. Resided twice in Brazil and once on Guam Island. Employed at the same large foreign-owned Distribution Center the past 15 years & completely 100% Pro-NAFTA. Smart individual investing is the preferred solution to improving one's economic future, as opposed to vast & vague government handouts. Seeking Alpha is the #1 best financial blog because of honest opinions & superb organization.

I am an independent trader. I have been trading my own money for over 20 years.
I am focused on finding growth stocks that are priced like value stocks or stocks that are misunderstood or under followed. Generally, I buy stocks where I feel like my chances of losing money are low, but still offer the possibility of large gains. This almost always leads me to small and microcap cap stocks.
I joined Seeking Alpha to share some of my ideas with others. I hope they are profitable.
Please do your own due diligence and do not blindly buy stocks on Seeking Alpha articles alone (including mine).

I have been investing privately for ten years. I look to take concentrated positions in stocks with asymmetrical risk/reward profiles. Turn around situations, companies on the verge of significant revenue / EPS growth, and stocks that unjustly sell below their NCAV are all very interesting to me. I find that most of these finds come in small caps, due to their lack of coverage. However I am not averse to taking a position in a large company which I think fits one of my criteria.
I have extensive experience in analyzing companies and constructing recommendations and portfolios for convertible, high yield and equity products. Since started trading new discretionary accounts, performance has been excellent (up 31% in 2012 and 43.8% YTD 10/’13 v. SPX 16% and 25.3%, respectively). Employ opportunistic, balanced style.
Specialties: Excellent credit and equity analysis skills. Very strong communication skills and client contacts developed on both the buy-side and sell-side.
