I enjoy spending my free time researching stock ideas and publishing ideas when I have a solid investment thesis. I enjoy writing about technology stocks as well as obscure "unsexy" businesses that are often overlooked by the larger market. I employ a growth at a reasonable price approach to select the majority of stocks I own. I worked as a stock analyst for two years at a boutique firm where I learned the framework that I now use to invest in my personal account. I earned a dual degree in Business and Economics, which gave me a foundation I currently use to perform due diligence. I love hearing from readers and always try to answer questions or clarify when possible.
I‘m an economics undergraduate student of the Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn.
I got into investing at age 17 after reading the intelligent investor and other books about Warren Buffet.

I am an investor relations consultant with nearly 30 years experience steering IR strategy and outreach for 100+ companies across a range of industries. We launched Catalyst Global in 2012 as a platform for innovating the IR role to better address the realities of small cap companies. We deliver senior level experience and counsel with targeted outreach and efficient communications to create real change and share price results for "smidcap" companies in today's markets.
Relationships and credibility take time - there is no shortcut - and are rooted in integrity, candor and a focus on ROI. I post on Seeking Alpha to expand the reach of client & other investments we like. In our view online networking of ideas is integral to the IR function - & fun!
CG Focus List is a separate service to highlight investments brought to us by really smart investors we know. Profiled companies can be clients, ex-clients, non-clients or desired clients - but they offer very attractive investment potential and commensurate risk (there's no free ride in investing!)
My posts are NOT endorsed by the subject companies - client or otherwise. We believe in truth and fair play at all times. Period, and we gravitate to those who share that view. Enjoy & be careful!

Tales From The Future (tftf). I picked my nickname because many advisors and investors claim they can predict the future of the (stock) markets and somehow pick the winners. I don't. I usually do not engage in short-term trading and myopic analysis (quarter by quarter, without looking at the big picture). I like to work with long-term scenarios with a focus on possible disruptions in the technology and energy sectors. I look into value and contrarian ideas as well as emerging technologies and growth stocks worldwide, both on the long and short side. I also like to discuss the influence of monetary policy on global stock markets. I am fiercely independent in my investment research and therefore use the image of a lone Ninja. This influenced my investment principles for the past 20+ years: Pick your targets with patience. Do your OWN diligence. Never follow the herd blindly: 'Men, it has been well said, think in herds; it will be seen that they go mad in herds, while they only recover their senses slowly, and one by one.' General Sector Focus: Technology/Internet, Value, Disruptors, Energy/Alt Energy, Entertainment Stocks and Monetary Policy/Geopolitics. Geographical Focus: USA, Western Europe, Japan. Sector 'Halo' Focus Stocks: AAPL, TSLA... PS: Not a native English speaker. I apologize in advance for any typos and grammatical errors.
